One of my favorite spots in Wicker Park. Great space to work, study, and eat. The interior provides a great open space to get into that studious mood. Their sweet potato fries are amazing!

Fun place. Took advantage of one of the plethora of couches to get some much needed work done.

Ok, so I was a fan of the old Filter and I'm definitely a fan of the new Filter too. They've got a good selection of tea, and good coffee. I usually go here on weekday afternoons and Sunday mornings for coffee, brunch, and some study time. The Full Monty is always a delicious choice for brunch, and the best part is that they were able to accommodate me being vegetarian by replacing the sausage with tofu (major points in my view). Also, never forget to order the sweet potato fries! Can't decide between sweet potato or regular fries? Ask for "disco" fries (combo of both)! The art is wonderful, the eclectic music creates a nice vibe (its not blasting so loud that you cant even hear yourself think), and the people who work there are friendly for the most part.

First time in today, loved it lots of places to sit down and relax. Its like being in a huge living room. Good coffee & food only thing is bring CASH or get ready to use the level up app to pay. Overall great place I will return

Everything about this place feels right ... spacious, clean, excellent service, not a wobbly table in the joint. Ideal for a few hours of work, especially weekday mornings.

Since I've moved to the neighborhood, filter has been one of my go-to coffee shops, but honestly I don't go for the coffee... The larger than usual café is filled with your grandma's old, slightly musty couches, well-warn side tables, and clunky lamps. The art on the walls is typically for sale and it changes periodically. Usually, it's packed with Mac toting, plaid loving hipsters, but I've never felt out of place as a normal (jeans and a t-shirt, no converse) type of person. I would give the food 3.5 stars, drip coffee 1 (it's like drinking diesel!), the other drink options a 4 (I do like their juices, iced-coffee, and espresso drinks), and the atmosphere a 5. If you can, go during the week and at odd hours on the weekend. Otherwise you won't find a seat. Also, it's cash or LevelUp only. I've hopped on the LevelUp band wagon, so I don't mind.

The sweet potato fries and the roasted veggie wrap are great. I like that there is a full menu so I can work for hours and don't have to leave to get food. It gets really busy on weekends, but I can usually find a spot during the week. My favorite spot is at a table up front near the big windows.

This is a great place to go for a study group, to do some work, or just have lunch and coffee. The food is outstanding, the coffee is always good, and there is a good amount of seating so it rotates even though a lot of people park for several hours. There are couches and a huge sunny window that makes the place feel like an old college Union hall. The wifi is a bit spotty sometimes, but I can usually get 4G service through most of the place.
