    This place is wonderfully decorated like the ceiling has a portal linked to the 80s dropping knickknacks everywhere. The coffee is also excellent. The wifi password is printed on the floppy disks.

    Really cute coffee shop with lots of nerdy charm to it. Has lots of video game memorabilia and an old school vibe. Interesting coffee flavors too! Try the honeybear latte.

    The Wormhole is now my favorite coffee shop in the world! It'll bring you back to your childhood days w/ the 1980s nostalgia decor. Kid friendly w/ an NES. Koopa Troopa & Cool But Rude were delicious!

    Check out the DeLorean while enjoying a Koopa Troopa latte! Simultaneously an amazing coffee shop (legit roasting operation, skilled baristas, cool signature drinks) and nerd paradise.

    One of the best places for coffee at Chicago. My current favorite is iced Homemade vanilla bean. Always super crowded and not enough places to all people . Works until late nights.

    Their non-coffee drinks are big winners here. I highly encourage you to try the cruel summer if it's available - refreshing, unique, and still highly caffeinated ;) Bonus points for the DeLorean.

    Love this place! The vibe of it is so eclectic and unique compared to most modern styled coffee shops. Their seasonal drinks were also very interesting. I ordered the Cool But Rude and it was amazing

    Great vibes in the one of kind cafe for comic book and 80's movie lovers. Also great coffee. Barista was sassy which is kinda great. Not the best for work but great to meet up with people. Wifi

    The decoration is truly amazing, and a geek's paradise. From the walls, to the R2D2 mugs, to the not-so-hidden time machine, all the way up to the hanging menu. Just keep in mind it's really crowded.

    Busy on weekends (making it less than ideal for work.) But delicious drinks and fresh brewed coffee are well worth it. A must visit Chicago coffee shop.

    While you're there, grab a signature coffee & tea concoction, such as the The Chronic — juniper tea made with grapefruit peel, grapefruit juice, and tonic water reduction. Read more

    The greatest coffee shop I've ever come across! All of my childhood fantasies with my favorite caffeinated adult beverage, free wifi, and they built a time machine out of a Delorean!

    Love coming here during the weekdays, when it's not too packed. DONT GO ON WEEKENDS! It's extremely packed and not enjoyable. Overall though, great coffee and pastries.

    The wonderful coffee is enough of a reason to go, the Nintendo is amazing good fun, even if you're awful (like me). The coffee shop is a hike for the loop and a pain from the red line but worth it.

    The Wormhole is great to study in because it has large tables, free wifi, great music and coffee. The '80s theme is more unique than the average coffee shop.

    The steady brews here are by Metropolis, but featured roasters, like LA's Handsome Coffee Roasters, regularly fill the extra grinders.

    Work alongside a DeLorean and in sci-fi heaven, with a Koopa Troopa coffee alongside for the ride. A comfy place to crank out some work in the Wicker Park neighborhood. (via @elatlboy) Read more

    This. Place. Is. Awesome. Not much for food BUT here's what they do have: original Nintendo, my favorite 80s movie posters, Star Wars merch, a DeLorean, and obviously free wi-fi.

    Add 10 minutes to your wait time if the person in line ahead of you is friends with someone who works here. They need time to catch up and chat, and that's more important than customer service, right?

    This cafe's decor lovingly pays homage to pop culture gone by, w/ knicknacks like a Castle Grayskull strewn about, a real DeLorean parked in the front window, & an old TV hooked up to an Atari 5200. Read more

    Their soy is good. the cappuccinos are a bit foamy. Espresso is good tho not very bright/citrus. Decorations are a kick. Great place to do work.

    By far one of the best places to work on your laptop in Wicker Park! Plugs everywhere, tables of all kinds, free wifi, and of course, let's not forget, the fricken DELOREAN in the window!!!!
