Sol Café is a specialty coffee shop, scratch kitchen, and plant haven located in the Historic Howard Theatre building (an architectural gem of the 1920s). We strive to create a warm, inclusive space with accessible nourishment for our Rogers Park community + beyond. We draw inspiration from what we serve and the community we serve it to: our dynamic neighborhood, and the bright cultures and environment of our coffee growing regions.

Our customers give us life. On any given day you may pass by a local artist adorning our walls with her latest eco-installation, or overhear our friends at Family Matters discussing powerful ideas with neighborhood teens. The vibrant sounds of classic Cumbia, 60’s soul, or hometown Hip Hop greet you with each visit.

Our goal is to conjure the excitement of what’s new, while offering you the nostalgic comforts of the familiar.

Come thru. We welcome you.
