Travel to Andersonville for Kopi

Tucked away within all the hustle and bustle of Andersonville’s Clark Street is a fantastic little local coffee shop called Kopi.  A peek in the windows of Kopi will reveal people lounging on cushions drinking coffee and if you head inside you will be surprised at the spaciousness of this coffee shop and all the Kopi has to offer.

Beyond the wonderful aromatic coffee roasted on location Kopi also offers a great variety of food for breakfast, lunch, dinner or brunch.  Most of their items are vegetarian and less heavy than your standard fair and their affordable pricing reflects that.  In fact the majority of their meals are less than $10 per person.  They have a fantastic selection of tea served in adorable tea pots as well as decadent desserts.  For a fun afternoon out, I love to take my toddlers there for coffee and a giant cookie.  They have high chairs and a wonderful staff that always makes me feel welcome with my children.

Kopi comes from an Indonesian word for “coffee” and the shop bills itself as a “traveller’s cafe.”  The coffee house is decorated to match this theme and in the back is a little shop filled with various gift items also with a worldly theme.  My children – obsessed with clocks since Cinderella – loved the numerous clocks around the shop that tell you the current time around the world.

I adore Kopi and highly recommend travelling up to 5317 North Clark in Andersonville for a stop at this north side treasure!
