The strangest thing about Kouk's Cafe (5653 N. Northwest Highway in Norwood Park) is that this same idea wasn't done sooner. A very warm and cozy cafe (with good tea and wi-fi), it also has an attached resale shop that is affordable and filled with doo-dads. (We got some great retro postcards.) In the summer there's an outdoor garden where you can take your tea and conversation. Recommended, certainly.
