Intelligentsia on Tap at Metropolis Cafe

A Message from Metropolis’ Tony Dreyfuss I’ve watched as coffee lovers become entrenched into brand camps. At first blush, this would seem to work to our advantage. We have a great brand, fully backed by the finest coffees that we can find.  We have our own approach to sourcing and roasting, and those differences appear [...]

Welcome to “The Weekly Roast”

Alright, I just want to state that this blog is going to be a work in progress. Hopefully creating transparency between the roasters and the customers will open up some interesting dialogue. Plus, I’m sure none of you really know what we, as roasters, do on a daily basis. So what I’m going to do [...]

Yolk: It’s What’s For Brunch!

What would you consider THE most integral items for a classic American brunch? Eggs—check. Potatoes—check. Coffee—check. We here at Metropolis Coffee Company would choose the last item, of course–it’s what we do. We expect Taki Kastanis, owner and visionary of Yolk restaurants in Chicago, would pick the first–and we wouldn’t have it any other way. [...]

Syrup–No Pancakes–at Metropolis Cafe

At Metropolis Coffee Company, we are responsible for most everything we pass on to our customers, buying mainly beans and the equipment to roast and distribute them.

The Wormhole on a Tuesday Afternoon, 2010 A.D.

It was summertime pandemonium inside Wicker Park’s newest and decidedly 80s coffee hot spot today: The Wormhole. While I arrived with Wormhole’s coffee, Tony was hanging with Sarah and her staff, talking training and probably some jokes and non sequiturs, too. With types from Dollop and Kickstand hanging around, too, it was a little like finding myself [...]

Technology, People & FourSquare at the Cafe

Located in Edgewater, one of the country’s most eclectic locales, the Metropolis Cafe is relaxed and without attitude. Our customers come from all walks of life and we love ‘em all. And they seem to love our coffee and tea, our sweet and savory bites, and our accomplished vegan menu. Did we mention art, music…? [...]

All Points Wheelman

A hot pink and black promontory at the center of a burgeoning city neighborhood, lit at its center by an 8-bit heart. An inviting corner coffee shop that reflects the knowing serenity of its sibling owners. A dynamic duo of sass, sandwiches and smoothies that sit in the refracted shadows of the CTA Brown Line, [...]
