UPTOWN — Uptown has another new coffee shop, and this one is far out.
The Satellite Cafe, 942 W. Montrose Ave., opened next to Ross Dress For Less Thursday, according to the owners, husband-and-wife duo Tim Benedict and Margaret McCall.
In November, the couple announced the cafe would be a space-themed, commuter-focused version of the other coffee shop they own and manage, Eats and Sweets Cafe in Ravenswood.
"It's a much more streamlined version, with a much smaller menu as far as food goes," Benedict said Friday morning. "Everything is being made fresh [at Eats and Sweets] and brought down here."
The couple moved to Uptown from Detroit about six years ago because they "really loved the diversity," and dreamed of opening a restaurant somewhere in the neighborhood, Benedict said.
The cafe offers free Wi-Fi and has seating for about 12 people. It brews Two Brothers Coffee, available both hot and as a cold brew, he said.
The cafe is open from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays.
