Cupitol Coffee & Eatery Restaurant Review

: That corporate coffee chain (you know the one) may have a national foothold, but this all-day-dining café is a sign that locals are supporting their neighborhood. One might forget that people actually live in Streeterville, a district of mostly hotels and the ultimate tourist destination, Navy Pier. In this spot, stumble upon the active wear and roving worker sets, armed with their Fitbits and laptops and ready to pull up an armchair or claim one of the many communal or two-top tables in this open brick-walled dining room. Breakfast goes savory and sweet, from a flaky chocolate croissant to a sticky bun french toast with salted caramel and pecans. For lunch, a hunky, salty falafel burger is a welcome twist on tradition, while a gravlax baguette comes sandwich style with herbed cream cheese and cucumbers. The late crowd (meaning after 5 p.m.) can grab dinner. Favorites are the skirt steak with asparagus, romaine, coconut curry and roasted baby potatoes and a hormone-free chicken Alfredo. Coffee drinks are steaming hot and plentiful.
