This is a great place for writers for many reasons.
First, they have free WIFI Service. There are also many tables and chairs, and also some comfy chairs near the front with lamps nearby, it's a very cozy atmosphere. It's not a chain coffee store, so there are eclectic items there, such as a horse lamp, and also books to browse through while there. The decor is a bit mismatched, but in a great way. Their house coffee is to die for, it's called Metro Mocha Java. Yum! They bake their muffins and other baked goods fresh daily in-house.
They also have a monthly poetry reading with open mike sign up through the Westmont Area Friends of the Arts in cooperation with the Illinois State Poetry Society. The reading is held on the last Sunday of each month.
They are only open from 5 a.m. to noon, so if you're an early morning riser/writer, this is perfect. On Saturday nights they do have live entertainment, and they even have a house band. They are located across from the Westmont Train station, so it's perfect for a commuter like me. Not only do I get great coffee here, but this cafe also inspires me. Hope to see you there!
