Hyde Park Heads to Cafe 53 for Coffee and Dessert, not far from The Blackwood

August 27, 2014 11:01 am

The vibe at Cafe 53 is decidedly laid back. It's where Hyde Park goes to meet a friend for a quick coffee date, get some work done on the complimentary Wi-Fi, or cozy up and get lost in a good book. It's right next to the University of Chicago campus and just a short distance away from The Blackwood, making it a popular meeting place for students, faculty, and Hyde Park residents alike.

Grab a table and sip one of its many coffees or teas, or grab a cup to-go. You can also opt for espresso if you need an extra jolt of energy. When it comes to sustenance, the baked goods score high marks among customers, especially the spinach feta pie. So does the gelato, which serves as a frosty counterpart to a steaming cup of coffee or tea.
