Love setting up shop upstairs at Star and working all day. It's really quiet upstairs and great for times when you need to get in some uninterrupted work time. It can be a little awkward to make phone calls or have any sort of conversation upstairs because it is so quiet. The downstairs is so loud that you may want to cut your head off. I've been told that I am kind of like my 90-year-old grandma, but the downstairs makes me want to emerge into a hole and never return. The coffee is great. Fun atmosphere. It is just too loud. My grandma would agree.

My favorite coffee in Chicago. They're always experimenting with new blends and the staff is incredibly friendly. I would recommend any of the drinks - they cater to people who love a nice sweet and delicious drink, but also those who love to add a little spice. Great for weekend hangouts to just chat over a cup of coffee. Back area is great in the summer. Coffee aside, they have great pastrami sandwiches.

The AMBIENCE This is a really hip and trendy place. As you walk in everyone is talking and it's not crazy loud. There is an upstairs section but it's creepily quiet. I went up and it was packed yet not a single peep from a single person so I decided to find some room downstairs and hang out with a friend. The FOOD. DRINK I had a bottle orange soda which is whatever. ( I don't really do coffee but was in the area and wanted to stop in but my friend said it seemed ok - nothing fantastic) EAT I got a poppy seed muffin which tasted a little stale but it could be because we were here at 3 in the afternoon. There really wasn't much else to pick from besides a scone and one more thing. Just seemed like the place lacked selection. I also saw a menu for coffee but that was it - nothing freshly made besides the coffee and maybe that's their thing. No idea but the scone my friend got was ok - but nothing amazing or above average. The SERVICE We barely stood in line and the coffee was avail crazy quick! The girls working behind the counter were super chill and really nice to us and made the place feel inviting.

Everything you hear about this place is true: the low-tech/rough-around-the-edges/real-deal vibe of the Dark Matter brand is living and breathing at Star. If its not busy, order a pour-over of whatever they're doing as pour-over: if its hot, Chocolate City is always on tap. There is honestly no way to not have an awesome time here.

More than blow-your-mind, locally roasted coffee made by true artisans who maintain first name relationships with their farmers all over the world, Dark Matter is a cultural hub for the neighborhood. People here truly care about and each other. They also have SUPER cool art exhibits up on a monthly rotation. It's provided my house with more than a few fantastic pieces. Oh, and did I mention the coffee is amazing? Take it from a life long coffee addict- this is the best I've seen yet. Especially their Unicorn Blood espresso. Just. Yum. So good.

What a great coffee lounge! When I first moved to Chicago I was without internet for about a week. Since I work from home, I needed a place I could sit and get some work done. I headed over to Star Lounge and it was so good! The ambiance, noise level, and delicious coffee make for a really great work space. It also seems like a great place to just grab a coffee with a friend. I will definitely be heading back!

LOVE this place. Nutella croissant is delicious, and coffee is great. I wish there were more tables, we had to grab chairs at the bar which didn't leave much leg room. I also love it when coffee shops have self-serve water set up so I don't have to constantly bother the waitstaff for water :) Everyone was super nice, we will definitely be back

Yes. There will be a long line for you to stand in before you get your coffee. Yes. It will be worth it. The speciality latte drinks are phenomenal and it's hard to argue that you'll find a better cup at many other places. It does get a bit crowded and the bar / line system can be a bit difficult to navigate but once you've gotten your cup and settled in you'll forget all else once you dive into what's guaranteed to be an awesome cup of coffee.
