The Coffeehouse and Deli

The Coffeehouse and Deli in Uptown Normal is a community hub for students, visitors, and regulars alike to gather. The coffee beans are roasted in-house and the food menu is 100% vegetarian. Leisurely sip a coffee while working on your computer, enjoy an array of tasty café dishes while taking in the local art, or even enjoy live music on certain nights!

Fort Jesse Café

If you want some seriously delicious diner food to pair with your great coffee, Fort Jesse Café is the place to be. Decadent beverages like the Mo-Joe and cold brew with whipped cream and caramel will go great with menu items like chicken and waffles or the Brunch Burger. Keep in mind that this place is very popular so there can be a bit of a wait during peak hours.

The Donut Experiment

If you are a coffee-and-donuts person, The Donut Experiment is a must-visit. The “experiment” is that you get to build your own donuts by choosing the icing and toppings. You can be the hero of your study group, morning meeting, or breakfast-in-bed with good coffee and unique donuts, or enjoy warm fresh donuts right in the store.
