All this good eating needs something to wash it down. Whether you are looking for a Pepsi or something harder, you won't find your old watering holes here. What are you going to do?  And here's the thing: Chicago is a coffee town. The entire metro area is. I'm biased here. A good roaster is easy to find. I'll list some of those too. 

Taco Mac
3443 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Rd
Suwanee, GA 30024
Branch of a sports grill chain offering Buffalo wings, chili, sandwiches & lots of draft beer.
They'll tune in Chicago games when you ask.

International House of Pancakes is an American multinational pancake house/fast casual family restaurant chain that specializes in breakfast foods.
These guys serve Pepsi if you are tired of Coke.

I Have a Bean

Roaster. I order from them a lot. Best coffee in Chicago.
