LOGAN SQUARE — Good news for west Logan Square coffee drinkers: The new “grab and go” coffee shop at Wrightwood and Monticello avenues is now open.
The 230-square-foot coffee shop at 3624 W. Wrightwood Ave., called necessary & sufficient coffee, opened to the public 7 a.m. Friday.
“18 months of planning, research, learning, designing, building, hiring, and the complex systems of the City of Chicago and here we are! WHEW!” owner Kate Vrijmoet said in an email.
Vrijmoet’s coffee shop is for people on the go. There’s enough room for a couple people to comfortably stand and sip coffee, and a takeout window in front, but no chairs.
Folks can expect coffee from of Olympia Coffee Roasting, tea from Rishi Tea and pastries and snacks from FIG Catering, the Spoke & Bird Bakehouse and Gurnee Donuts.
Vrijmoet is an artist who has shown all over the world. She’s using the back of the storefront as her art studio.
The coffee shop’s hours are 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
