The popular South Side shop has expanded to a second location in River North and brought along its roster of Alterra coffee, smoothies, and sandwiches, plus a taste for local baked goods from Brown Sugar Bakery, Hoosier Mama Pie Shop, and Puffs of Doom, which are both cream puffs and a potential root cause of their consumption.

Robust Coffee Lounge: 416 W Ontario St., 312-526-3420.
