Black Box Cafe is a culmination of theatre, coffee, and an environment that promotes creativity. Up front it is all cafe with a full menu of drinks serving Metropolis Coffee that is roasted right here in Chicago. Behind the counter you will find a bakery kitchen whipping up fresh items daily and catering to the needs of the customers. If they want a vegan, gluten free, carrot cake with no icing on top, they got it. In the back behind this whole operation is a black box theatre. This is a theatre that is rented out to companies for them to put up their productions. The name 'black box' is exactly what you will get. An empty black box of a space ready to be converted easily into whatever a production can imagine it to be. Making the process nice and simple for them. And lucky for them, when they are working long hours on a production, there is fresh coffee right out front.
