Swim's cupcakes never disappoint - they are always moist and flavorful with light and sweet frosting. I love how they are served on such adorable plates with fresh oranges, quite an indulgence. Two of my favorite cupcake flavors are True

I was here once and loved it so much. It has such a great feel about it. I love their cupcakes and baked goods. I had to resist to not have even more.
The paninis are amazing but I still have to give it to the cupcakes. The oreo mint one blew me away.
OH and Free Wifi which is always great for the person on the go here in Chicago. My friend also raves about their Sunday Scrabble matches. She says they are intense! I will have to make another vacation out to Chicago just for that!

I went in here a little while ago after a client suggested it. The food was great but it took a half an hour to make a sandwich. Ridiculous!

The owner of this very small cafe works every morning and she is a sweetheart! She only uses fresh and natural foods, all made to order. Mini homemade muffins, seasonal salads, panino, and the only good organic coffee in the area. If you stop by in the morning while waiting for 66 bus, she may even give you a free mini muffin, while it's still hot!

The food at this coffeeshop is very good, with interesting combinations of tastes. I do think that the decor is a little forced with a barrage of ocean themes surrounding you, and very uncomfortable trendy furniture (no overstuffed

I have tried Swim caf time and time again, but I just can't get a good coffee drink there. Their drink, the High Dive, is ok, but just ok. The drip coffee is the same, unremarkable, and leaves me wanting something I can't put my finger
