printer's row coffee co

(not located in printer’s row, but still very good coffee)

There’s no shortage of quality coffee shops in Lincoln Park, and Printer’s Row is a welcome addition, even though it bears the name of a different neighborhood in the city. The cozy space is on a corner of Lincoln Ave, a homey contrast in the midst of the commercial blocks, true to the home roaster turned micro roaster story.

The humble space is shared by the café and by the roaster, with seating throughout the space that makes any visitor feel a part of the establishment. It’s never too busy, and never too empty, it feels very local to the community. The coffee beans are also sold by the bag in store and online.
