This airy, funky Logan Square coffeehouse invites lounging, but nowhere quite so insistently as at its dead center, where a big, fat comfy couch gives onto a big, fat old-fashioned TV, complete with a vintage Nintendo system and a pile of games. As if you needed more encouragement to stay awhile, there’s free wi-fi, and the kitchen serves up locally roasted Metropolis coffee along with pastries from Beans & Bagels, plus inexpensive meals and snacks, including some vegan offerings. Reasonably priced sandwiches start with grilled cheese (provolone on rosemary ciabatta) for $2.75.
