Chicago
Barista

TrueNorth Cafe is an independent, healthy shop in the heart of Andersonville providing great coffee, delicious, healthy food, nutritious blended drinks, and retail vitamins & sports nutrition.

The name TrueNorth represents the menu, interior design, and location of the café. True north is different from magnetic north in that it never wanders or varies from place to place.

They are simple and nutritious, and more importantly delicious.
