Kopi Cafe – a traveler’s delight
I have been a fan of Kopi, A Travelers Cafe for more than a decade. As a frequent traveler, I was immediately attracted to the name. Back in the day, I took my couchsurfers here, so this restaurant holds a lot of fond experiences for me. Kopi has it all — food, drinks, ambiance, and a boutique full of worldly treasures.
I had plans to photograph street art in Rogers Park recently, so it was the perfect opportunity to create some new memories. I picked a summery day for a bite and beer. Kopi offers two distinct patio settings. The patio behind the restaurant is quieter, while the sidewalk patio is great for taking in some people and dog-watching.
Kopi’s drink menu typically offers five beers in a range of styles. I was in the mood for something on the dark side, so I chose a Fat Pug Milk Stout by Maplewood. This beer is an easy drinker, especially since it was barely noon. Fat Pug has notes of dark chocolate and coffee and is not overly sweet. I accompanied my beer with a hearty Tofu Scramble.
Kopi has an extensive food menu that includes bakery items, salads, paninis, other savories, and then some! The cafe also serves wine, cocktails, and a plethora of tea and coffee options. If you’re indecisive like I am, you may want to peruse the menu before leaving home.
Have you been to Kopi Cafe? If so, comment with your favorite memory and/or dish. I see a future date in my forecast.
