Coffee lovers who miss the former Heritage Outpost location at 1325 W. Wilson will be excited to
know another local Chicago coffee shop will be opening this month!

Elena Zistakis, one of the owners of Elevate Coffee writes:

"I wanted to let you know that Elevate Coffee is opening our second location in Uptown Chicago! Elevate Coffee, a Chicago-based coffee shop serving coffee and tea-based drinks along with breakfast and lunch bites, is run by Nikola Zistakis (my brother), Alexandra Evangelou, and myself. We opened our first Elevate Coffee, 3344 N Halsted (Boystown), in September 2018. Despite the pandemic and related pressures on small businesses, we’re excited to be opening the second Elevate Coffee in the lobby of the 1325 W Wilson building. Our new location includes indoor seating, a walk-up window and features our existing menu. We’ll be open by mid-May. Our outdoor patio will open later this summer.

Nikola, an architect by trade, manages most aspects of Elevate Coffee, from operations to the creation of a custom inventory management platform, and he is currently executing the entire build out of our Uptown location. Construction began March 20 and he’s been on-site every day since. Truly a family-run business, our dad also created the artwork for our original location and is currently painting the centerpiece for Uptown. Our Instagram highlights capture the build-out progress over the past six weeks. 

Our Boystown location has 273 reviews and a 4.8-star rating on Google. We receive a lot of praise on our Horchata Cold Brew, Crem Bru-Latte, and Avocado Caprese Toast. We update specialty items on our menu seasonally. Our new Coconut Honey Latte and Bacon and Cheddar Egg bites are a couple of examples. Each of our baristas contribute to the creation and selection of our menu items. We’re so excited to be part of the Uptown neighborhood and wanted to spread the positive news, right on time for iced-coffee season!"
