Nothin' Less on Milwaukee Ave.
"Behind every succesful woman is a substantial amount of coffee."
That's one of the coffee quotes on the wall of the newly opened coffee shop, Nothin' Less, at 2642 N. Milwaukee Avenue.
The premise, near to my heart, is nothin' less than "around the world." The owner, Elena Martiniuc, is Russian, her husband Lithuanian, the baristas Morrocan and American, the baked goods Georgian and Austrian, and the coffees come from the far coffee-planting corners of the earth.
Nothin' Less Coffee Shop Interior
Elena has put a lot of love and care into the business, and it delights at every turn, from everything coffee on the walls to puzzle books for patrons, chocolate pudding drinks, triple espresso shots, the fireplace ready for a still chill spring day, parfaits, honey-laced avocado smoothies, or your's made to order from a variety of fresh fruit, syrups and spices, coffee bean centerpieces, panini, breakfast sandwiches, and on and on.
There are plenty of opportunities to try Nothin' Less as it opens early at 6:00 a.m. and closes late-ish at 10:30-ish p.m. And Wi-Fi is coming soon. Don't be surprised if it's your new favorite haunt.
