Lobster ravioli special. Absolutely delicious. Norman, our waiter was friendly and attentive. Cocktails were on point. Atmosphere was chill and laid back.

We hosted a 50 person brunch here on a Sunday, and while that was the max the small kitchen could handle, they did such an amazing job getting lots of delicious food out of the door for us. We loved the mac n' cheese with egg, the special veggie scramble, and the french toast. Good coffee, good people, and normally just a good chill spot to have a meal. I feel like people not usually in the area might get a little confused by the "Chicago Teacher's Lounge" name and wonder if it's actually just for teachers - which means it's your lovely little neighborhood secret not too crowded great place to eat. At least until everyone else figures it out.

I am just reading that this place closed their doors. Please let us know if the chef will be opening anywhere else. We loved coming here and loved your menu.
