Managing to hit all the required notes, as running a mallet up a xylophone: great coffee? Bing! Music like your very own playlist? Bang! Understated decor like all your favorite catalogs mind-melded? Ding! Outlets galore, foolproof wi-fi, and a liberal stay-all-day policy? Zing!
The best coffee shop is usually the one that's closest to your apartment, but Spyhouse is actually really truly kinda the best, worth traveling for because of all the reasons above plus they serve Patisserie 46 pastry. Spyhouse is stylish enough for a date or a business meeting, or just that place to get out off the couch and stare at the laptop from different environs.
The North Loop will be getting its very own, and yes it's in a luxury apartment building, with a projected opening date in June.
Spyhouse West will provide hip sipping for the residents of the Brunsfield Apartment Building and all else who choose to come in search of artisanal small-batch roasted coffee, latte art, and high-backed black leather swivel chairs.
