Au Cheval x Sawada Coffee



Au Cheval is perfect for both burger junkies and those who love them but are tired of scarfing down beef patties between fluorescent lights and greasy counters. Branching out from their uber-popular location in Chicago, Au Cheval aims for a classy diner feel with leather booths, dim lighting from chandeliers and funky lamps, and blue accents for just a touch of quirkiness. You’ll feel like you’re in a hip lounge—not about to take down a massive burger laden with bacon and a fried egg. Their touch of sophistication extends to the menu, which serves up diner classics like fried bologna sandwiches along with upscale takes like hash with duck heart gravy, roasted bone marrow, and perfectly indulgent truffle fries.

Fight off the impending food coma with a caffeine boost at Sawada Coffee, which is luckily inside of Au Cheval. Another Chicago success story that came from a collaboration with a Japanese coffee artist (new dream job alert!), this cafe has coffee and tea drinks made exquisitely and finished with next-level latte art. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy cookies, dacquoise, and doughnuts, and those of us mourning the careers in coffee art that we’ll never have can drown their sorrows with spiked drinks. No basic hot toddies here: their selections include a sake drink, chai spiked with Bénédictine, and a boozy scotch.
