Colectivo’s designers, artists, and architects spent a year renovating the historic corner space at Church and Sherman, restoring the storefront windows and ceiling height to their original glory. Originally a soda fountain in the 1960s, this 2,600-square-foot cafe features operable windows and our signature girder-style awnings, as well as unexpected design touches like handmade tables, custom wall finishes, and prehistoric live plants. A tremendous amount of natural light pours into the space, offering a sunny spot to sit and enjoy a drink or bite to eat. Serving espresso, coffee, and tea; a full cafe food menu, Troubadour baked goods, along with craft beers and Colectivo Keg Co. Nitro Cold Brew on tap.
This cafe features a sunny interior decked out in colorful repurposed materials - be sure to check out our giant mixing bowl planters! Fully operable garage doors open to face Milwaukee Ave., one of Chicago’s most popular cycling routes.
