Glencoe's Hometown Coffee & Juice is a Local Gem

Glencoe's "Hometown Coffee & Juice", located at 700 Vernon Avenue, describes itself as "a neighborhood spot where friends can meet for conversation and connection." The local vibe of the bright venue is relaxed and welcoming. The eatery has a variety of treats on offer, perfect for a quick bite during a busy day.

Try the popular "Bagel Melts" that can double as breakfast or lunch. The "Salami, Egg, and Cheese" made with Vermont cheddar is popular among patrons. The "Toasts" section of the menu features signature fresh-baked multigrain bread topped with everything from avocados and crushed red pepper flakes to almond butter, apples, cinnamon, and honey. "Rubin's Reuben" arrives stacked with turkey, creamy Munster cheese, maple grilled bacon, Roma tomatoes and a schmear of honey mustard, while the "Veggie" features hummus, spinach, tomato, red onions, and Swiss cheese.

Hometown also offers "Cold-Pressed Juices" and "Smoothies", perfect pick-me-ups. You can choose from the just-squeezed "Tropical Kick", made with pineapple, apple, ginger, and cayenne pepper; or the "Can't Beat That" featuring beet, apple and ginger juices. Smoothies blend fruits with oats, nuts, and yogurts to create meal-in-a-glass standouts like the "Daily Fix" that combines strawberries, bananas, spinach, dates, coconut milk and vanilla whey for a protein-rich, fruity morning or afternoon punch. The spot also offers a barista led coffee experience, for all those caffeine fiends out there. Relaxing organic loose leaf tea is also available.

The spot also has plans to expand its offerings. Specialty drinks have been added to the menu too, so make the most of Happy Hours at Hometown from 4 pm to 7 pm. And after your meal, indulge in one of the spot's famous cookies to end your visit to Hometown on a sweet note. For more information, please visit
