In this day and age when you can find a national sandwich chain on every block it was very refreshing to find a unique, hip privately owned café right here in the heart of Lincoln Park! The Bourgeois Pig Cafe is a beloved Lincoln Park favorite and landmark with a neo-Victorian vibe and cozy seating.

There are two parts to the establishment. When you walk up the stairs, sandwiches on the LEFT, coffee/drinks on the RIGHT. But if you order food and decide to sit upstairs on the right-side, the servers will happily bring your sandwich to you (as I observed). Sweet. The interior is so fun and it feels like a vintage shop just happened to turn itself into a cafe. If you’ve ever been to the New Elephant Resale Shop of Chicago, just south of Depaul’s campus on 1145 Webster, you might know what I mean.

They have vintage Coke signs in French tacked onto their doorways, an extensive selection of teas in a floor-to-ceiling wooden cabinet and just a whirlwind of things to look at and admire (or question)…. like in a thrift shop.
