How to avoid long coffee lines

Opinion: Letters To The Editor

I was debating whether to write this letter because after its publication, it may take longer to get my morning coffee. If word gets out, there may be a line. There is something about this place called Sugar Fixe. There are people in the back kitchen in white chef's attire mixing and baking and busy making some incredible baked goods. Meanwhile, fancy polished machines brew incredible Viennese coffee.

A look into the glass display case and you'll see edible works of culinary art. You might find this place tucked away on a romantic street in Paris, tending to locals enjoying amazing coffee, outstanding flaky pastry like crusted ham & cheese croissants, luscious eclairs, quiches and more.

Better yet, this place called Sugar Fixe is 4,189 miles closer to you, located at 119 N. Marion St. in Oak Park. The place has a genius for coffee-brewing and pastry-making.

If you haven't visited this beautifully run little coffeehouse and French-style bakery, you should see what you're missing.

Yes, the store is darling, isn't it? But it's priced for people who make their living selling derivatives on the stock market, or, perhaps, foreclosing on Oak Parkers who have fallen on hard times. The reason the lines aren't long is because it's a boutique coffee shop that caters to the rich.
