Great place and owners! I just rented the space for my birthday party and it turned out amazing. Chef Paul and Bo were great in helping with all the set up and finishing all the food we brought in. My party was “Friends” theme and we turned it into little Central Perk for the day :). There were retro video games for the kids, photo booth to play with; great sound system and projector. I would recommend to anyone looking for party or event rental space and also just to stop by for bite of food and coffee! Thank you Paul and Bo!
Bo helped me optimize my work computer and extend the life of it when I wasn’t able to upgrade. All at a very fair price. He really cares about his customers. This is the only place I will go for any tech needs and it helps that they serve some killer sandwiches and coffees too. Don’t sleep on this place, check it out!
Easily one of the best cafe’s in the area. Awesome music, friendly staff and dope ambient. Not to mention the retro games they have, makes me feel at home.
Omggggg… Was looking for something different than my usual black coffee (I’m Dairy Free ). Had a GOST LATTE w/ OAT MILK, recommendation by one of the baristas. Could not stop taking about how great it was! Thanks guys! You never disappoint.
I went to a private party, the place was nice with free parking. The venue also provided the food which was awesome.
I really can’t express how wonderful this place is in such a short review. 8A5E has been a huge supporter of the local artist community in Chicago. Anytime I’m in the area I make a point to stop by the cafe and grab a coffee. I love the staff and the coffee they brew!
