“Differentiating oneself in the burgeoning field of alternative country artists is a tricky proposition these days, but Dave Ramont stands tall in the crowd.” –Performing Songwriter magazine
Ramont was born with a song in his head; the doctors couldn’t get it out. Since then he’s played extensively around the Chicago area, as well as the Midwest, South & East.
He’s released 4 solo records and 3 more with swillbilly band dick smith, which he co-founded. Currently he’s recording new material, kicking stuff down the street and playing songs for rye whisky & sandwiches.
“Dave Ramont is a fine guitarist and vocalist in his own right- better than so much other stuff I hear out of the Chicago area.” –Richard Milne, WXRT, Chicago

I cannot praise this place enough... The "log cabin" coffee I had was fantastic but what truly blew me away was their plain bagel with the "bacon buddy" ontop (hope I'm getting that name right). I was looking for something sweet, savory, and hearty without being too much and this was definitely it. I will definitely be making an effort to revisit again and again.
Coffee excellent! Food was divine! Vibe was spectacular.
A fantastic coffee shop with excellent drinks, service, and food. Everyone was so helpful. The space is great as it's big, open, and inviting. Just a delightful experience all around
