Raise a mug to UChicago's campus cafés.

As campus life returns to its pre-COVID rhythms, the student-run coffee shops have been abuzz with patrons in search of their morning, afternoon, or even evening (hey, we don’t judge) buzz. Here, a hardworking barista at Grounds of Being (colloquially, “the Div School coffee shop”) froths up the perfect treat to accompany nonfrothy reading. What was your favorite coffee shop at UChicago, and what was your regular order? Did you ever order the “Cobb Mocha” off the secret menu? Let us know: uchicago-magazine@uchicago.edu.
