Coffee is mandatory for many to start their day feeling human, but two new coffee shops - plus one more opening soon - are offering much more than just the basic cup. From a West Town cafe with a dog-friendly patio in the works to a Roscoe Village shop serving treats worthy of cronut-caliber obsession, these coffehouses have your caffeine fix covered and then some. Bad Wolf Coffee 3422 N. Lincoln Ave. 773-969-2346 Story: With gigs at Schwa and New York's Momofuku Ko on his resume, Jonathan Ory's roots may be in fine dining, but he recently switched gears to open this Roscoe Village coffee...

It might be the last chance to own a piece of Chicago grocery history.  An online auction is selling the last bits of the Edgewater Dominick's location--set to become a Whole Foods next year--and there are some interesting items on the block.  Electric shopping carts are currently going for $20, and an entire floral display structure can be yours for a quarter. Keep in mind, though, the auction--being held through Grafe auctioneers --only lists the current bids. As time goes on, it's very likely the prices will be much higher.  Click through the gallery to...

There are plenty of rooftop lounges in the city, but it's hard to find one where you can take in the sights from a distance. When it opens June 1, Hotel Lincoln's rooftop bar and small plates restaurant (1816 N. Clark St.) will look out over Lake Michigan with an uninterrupted skyline view. “You're not looking at another building. The rooftop has sweeping views up and down Lincoln Park,” said Hotel Lincoln general manager Bob Shelley.   The yet-to-be-named lounge will have seating for 175 outdoors and 75 indoors and will feature hand-crafted cocktails and small bar bites...

A local chef with a memorable name and a talent for making equally memorable doughnuts is opening his own restaurant. Enoch Simpson, most known for creating those addictive butterscotch-bacon doughnuts served during brunch at Nightwood, will soon open Endgrain in the space formerly housing Terragusto (1851 W. Addison St.). "We're featuring the doughnuts here every morning and as part of the daily brunch," said Simpson, who is running the business with the help of his brother Caleb.

The ethos of Heritage Chicago, Lakeview's brand new bike/coffee shop, can be summed up in one word -- local. Owner Michael Salvatore, a fifth-generation Chicagoan, strongly believes in the power of locally sourced, family owned business. His innovative shop, which officially opens Saturday at 2959 N. Lincoln Ave., is truly mom-n-pop. Salvatore lives in the space above the cafe with his wife Melissa and his newborn son Bennett.  A baby monitor sits behind the counter just in case the little guy needs some attention while dad is busy brewing.

Graham Rahal slouched atop a stool nestled inside a local coffee shop. The 24-year-old IndyCar driver planted his elbows firmly on the small table in front of him. His stare darted around the room. He could imagine grandstands surrounding him that very moment. But no crowd rumbled. No checkered flag flapped. The loudest noise in the shop was the feverish tapping of Rahal's right foot. Again and again, he pounded his heel against the metal seat. It was as if he was hammering the gas pedal of a car flying at...

Chicagoans take their coffee seriously, and not just when they're drinking it. "For a long time in Chicago, coffee shops were split into two camps," said Zaida Dedolph of HalfWit Coffee Roasters. "Ones that served Intelligentsia, and ones that served Metropolis. " While some pledge unyielding allegiance toward one of the city's two big-name roasters, a number of more modest, small-batch operations opening over the past few years have brought even more richness to the local coffee-roasting community.
