Rise & Shine with Local Cafes Offering Hot Brews

American author Louisa May Alcott once penned that “I’d rather take coffee than compliments,” and we’re so inclined to agree. Luckily for us here at the Brookdale on the Park apartments in Naperville, Illinois, we have access to some of the best cafes and teahouses in the greater Chicago area. Take a look at some of our favorite places to start our morning, all offering delivery or takeout services.

SPARROW COFFEE

Priding themselves on state-of-the-art brewing tech and highly-trained staff, Sparrow Coffee is a favorite with on-trend locals. Serving organic and locally sourced fare with consideration, they are a welcome alternative to the bigger names (and price tags.) They serve killer lattes but don’t miss out on their delicious baked goods as well, with plenty of gluten-free options.

PINECONE COTTAGE

Just east of our Naperville, Illinois apartments, you’ll find the charming Pinecone Cottage. If you’re looking for a whimsical, traditional teahouse experience, they certainly aim to please, even providing considerate outdoor seating along with takeout services. Offering a delightful seasonal menu, we especially love their house blend and their tasty afternoon tea menu.

ARBOR VITAE JAVA & JUICE DELIVERY

Arbor Vitae Java & Juice Delivery is the perfect ideation of the classic cup of coffee, and they have the customer base to prove it.  Just ten minutes from our Naperville apartments, they have the classic morning brew you crave and a lot more. Whether you’re starting your day with a healthy breakfast or treating yourself to a midday treat, we’re sure you’ll dig this place. We recommend the tasty lentil soup or a classic quiche to go with your cup of joe.

With these amazing, healthy, and delicious options right around the corner, it’s easy to see why so many foodies choose to call this area home.
