Established in 2010, Coffee Lab & Roasters -- Evanston (Coffee Lab or "The Lab") is an independently owned specialty coffee shop located on Noyes street, just a five minute walk from Northwestern University's north campus community and Garrett Seminary.
Known for it's high quality, fresh roasted specialty coffee that's served pour-over style, The Lab also stays true to a classic espresso bar menu serving traditional espresso based beverages prepared by well trained baristas who love the craft. Our beans from around the world are fresh roasted on a weekly basis by our very own local small batch roaster. Our food has a strong international flare with our home made artisan pastries influenced by Filipino-Chinese, Korean, and Japanese recipes along side our home made classic scones and rustic baked goods. Its a reflection of the owners' childhood flavors and our staffs' seasonal picks.
We're also well known for our traditional classic espresso bar, fresh roasted coffee beans , the purple ube latte, home made scones, muffins, and cakes, as well as our home made butter mochi cakes (traditional Filipino mochi cakes called bibingka).
Many students and locals consider this place their community center or second living room. We encourage you to make yourself at home, meet your neighbors, come study in your pajamas, and stay as long as you like (at least when we're open).
