Mission-Based Cafes

*Photo and story courtesy of Trend Hunters.
"Located on State Street in Chicago, Illinois, Overflow Coffee Bar fashions itself as more than just a place to grab a cup of joe.  It also serves as a community get-together space.  But wait, don't all cafes?  Overflow organizes specific programming in its space, that is, open mic nights, film screenings, artist meet and greets, and high school and/or community organization meetings.

The products available at the cafe, which include coffee obviously and more lunch-friendly light meals, are all fair and/or direct trade or organic.  There's a bit of clothing on sale as well.  Owner Amanda Neely opened the shop in mind in order to support non-profits."
