About Us

Our Mission

Awake Café opened in Noble Square in May of 2014 with a vision for creating space for authentic community to have a home. Add in exceptional coffee and espresso drinks, made with fair-trade beans roasted by local Chicago favorite Metropolis as well as a variety of artisan teas, specially blended by Chicago’s own Benjamin Tea, and community thrives!

Are you looking for some great food options? Our signature breakfast options are served all day, but we also offer many delicious sandwiches, salads, fresh pastries, snacks, smoothies, and our own signature chilluccinos – frozen espresso treats great on hot (or even cold) days.

You won’t want to miss the many healthy options, including vegan and vegetarian choices, with fresh vegetables, hummus, egg whites, plant-based meats and cheeses, and other nutritious ingredients. Everything at Awake Café is made fresh and prepared to order for dining in or carry-out.

We also offer catering! All of our delicious options can be ordered for that special event so you can just relax and enjoy.

We look forward to showing you why Awake’s exceptional customer service, fabulous food, smoothies, and coffee are some of the best you will find ANYWHERE!
