This place single handedly kept me caffinated (and fed) thorughout my college years. Tons of great vegetarian options are available on their cafe menu as well as great veggie juices. I've bought coffee beans several times here and the coffee has never let me down. :)

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.

A favorite spot any day of the week for breakfast or lunch. Great space or work and eats. The interior provides ample space, quick service, tasty food, and some nice wall art to boot. Check out the sweet potato fries.

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

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.

Filter is my favorite cafe / coffee shop near downtown Chi. The ambiance is always great (rain or shine outside), decor unique and eclectic (although slightly old couches!), food fantastic for a coffee shop (although cash only). Great study spot, but also expect some small/medium size groups to take up some space and create a little noise. Definitely check this place out.
