The second stop on my Chicago coffee project was Bucktown’s Ipsento Coffee on Milwaukee Ave.
Ipensento is a cozy, warm little shop with a very friendly staff. Working in two jobs that involve public facing roles, I am always so appreciative when I go somewhere and the staff is friendly and helpful. The person who made my coffee remembered my name for the entire time I was there, helped answer a bunch of questions about seating, wifi, the shop, and also made me a delicious Nutella Latte.
The area around Ipsento is slightly less vibrant than that of Wormhole Coffee where my last venture took place, but it was a short walk from the Western Blue Line. I’m not that familiar with the area, so I would definitely want to do some exploring next time I’m around.
I sat and worked for about an hour and a half in the cozy upstairs portion. I sat in an armchair which was perfect for the coding work I was doing on my computer so I could be comfy. There were varieties of tables available as well if you needed a little more space to spread out, and they had a lot of cute, vintage looking decor that made it feel like I was sitting in someone’s living room.
Looking forward to my next coffee adventure! Confession: I have already made it back to Wormhole Coffee once since my first visit, so I have a feeling it’s going to be tough to keep trying new places with all these great visits I have had so far. Stay tuned for more.
