Chicago Grind Cafe is the second restaurant concept by longtime Pizzeria Aroma owner Jim Dababneh. Teaming up with his wife Reem, they set out to build and create a bright & contemporary Coffeehouse that the Lakewood-Balmoral neighborhood would be proud to support.
They have joined forces with Metric Coffee & Benjamin Teas to provide their patrons with truly world class beverages.
Throughout their travels, Jim & Reem discovered that even the best of coffee establishments were lacking in food & dessert choices beyond the basic pastries. Chicago Grind features an array of breakfast items, premium sandwiches, gourmet salads, pasta & quinoa creations and artisanal flatbreads — all made fresh to order. This gives our neighborhood place a European style cafe feel. Chicago Grind is proud to feature preservative free pastries, cakes, & desserts — from Maier Bakery, Alliance Patisserie, and Andersonville's Defloured Bakery. We offer an assortment of Gluten-Free & Vegan options for the sweet & savory tooth.
Designed with individual & communal wood tables, a leather sofa living room section, and a quartz countertop bar, Chicago Grind is the new generation of Coffee Cafe: High speed WiFi. Lots of natural light. Great food options. Tasty beverages. Friendly faces. Upbeat music. No pretentious coffeehouse snobbery. We’re committed to raising the standard of service & quality in this great neighborhood for years to come.
