Although I love to travel, I'm also a creature of habit. That's why I find it soothing to establish little routines when I'm away from home. In the mornings, this routine predominantly revolves around coffee. While in Chicago, I woke up every morning and set out to try a new coffee shop. It gave me a chance to explore different neighbourhoods, allowed me to enjoy one of my favourite indulgences - a baked good dipped in cappuccino - and provided me with a leisurely start to each day.
I visited Intelligentsia, The Wormhole Coffee, Letizia's Natural Bakery, and Ipsento Coffee House and Roaster during my time in Chicago. If I missed some good ones (which I'm sure I did) let me know, and I'll add them to my list for next time.
