The Brewed

Chicago has its fair share of craft-coffee-meets-vintage-records spots, but the newest addition adds another layer: a retro-diner-inspired horror-movie haven. From the owners of the adjoining Bric-a-Brac Records, the Brewed takes cues from David Cronenberg’s 1979 cult-classic flick The Brood and is filled with 1970s and ’80s cinephile memorabilia from the owners’ personal collections. Grab a Firestarter (a Stephen King–themed latte flavored with ancho chile, cinnamon, red chile flakes, and tangerine extract) and head to the back, where you’ll be greeted with pink walls meant to replicate the wallpaper in the 1977 version of Suspiria. 2843 N. Milwaukee Ave., Logan Square
