2017 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence!

Day in and day out, we work really hard to share with you – our loyal Coast family, along with our new guests – the passion we have for crafting and serving a great tasting and satisfying fare; for providing friendly, attentive service and for exuding that special, one of a kind, 3rd Coast Café ambiance, as described by one of our regulars as, “a modernized old-world atmosphere, circa the idealized 1880s Intellectual-Bohemian Paris”, that is the "Coast".  Warm and inviting, comfortable and faithful, just like your favorite pair of shoes - a perfect fit.

Our daily grind is usually unsung.  We do it for you.  We do it for pride.  Chicago is a great city with many great restaurants, so when our efforts are rewarded by a well crafted review from a happy Coaster and, as in this case, another Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, we are humbled and very happy.

Thank you to each member of the Café staff for your hard work, your dedication – for always giving that little extra something that it takes to receive this kind of acknowledgement! That little extra something, that makes the Coast, the Coast. You made this happen... again.

Finally, a loud, boisterous, Chicago thank you! to all who choose to come into our establishment, spend your time and money, then take the time to write a review about your experience.
