Volumes Bookcafe

Volumes Bookcafe – 1474 N. Milwaukee Ave

A recent addition to Wicker Park, Volumes Bookcafe opened on N. Milwaukee Ave in the spring of 2016. It is a very clean, curated space that also includes a cafe that serves, among other things, delicious, delicious Metropolis Coffee.

Started by sisters Rebecca and Kimberly George, the shop hosts lots of events and works hard to create a great community space.

That hard work paid off when, on the verge of collapse in 2018, the community stepped up and gave nearly $40,000 to an Indiegogo campaign. Like a modern version of a Frank Capra film, the store was saved and now, a year and a half or so later, they just opened up a second store on Michigan Ave.

I’m always a sucker for a happy ending, especially when physical books are involved.
