This casual Croatian cafe has become our favorite place to get some work done in River North. It’s not just because Doma is quiet, has strong wifi, a cute side patio, and a soothing Scandinavian furniture store aesthetic (and vintage chairs for sale). No, it’s also because the food is excellent. It’s open for breakfast and lunch, and the menu has dishes like must-order ćevapi wrapped in fluffy flatbread with clotted cream and a roasted pepper spread, a spicy breakfast sandwich, and tasty soups and pastries. All of which are likely to distract you from whatever reports you’re supposed to be typing on your laptop.

Osteria La Madia
Keeping up with the Joneses is dangerous, which is why you shouldn't be swayed by La Madia's fancy new dishes. Stick to the pizza.
Gilt Bar is the rare River North spot that’s easy to get into, and also has great food. Prepare for a lot of meat, butter, and salt.
