Perfect Blend Coffee Cafe in Highland Park, Illinois

I am always scouting for new coffee shops during our Chicago suburban explorations. After visiting the Openlands Lakeshore Preserve, we stopped at Perfect Blend in Highland Park for a little coffee on the way home. Coffee shops pretty much run the gambit between being strictly place for a coffee concoction to full service restaurants. The Perfect Blend is somewhere in between which gives you a lot of options if you are looking for something to nibble on with your coffee.

The cafe sells a number of baked goods, all looking delicious. We did not bring our daughter on this visit, but I know that she would LOVE a muffin. Above the muffins, you can see that Perfect Blend has quite a selection of tea. I do have a fondness for Mighty Leaf, so it is good to know where to get it if I am looking for some tea in Highland Park. They also have a number of quick snack bars if you are on the go.

Perfect Blend also has sandwiches and salads that they prepare fresh. I was surprised by the amount of vegetation you could order on your sandwich. I ordered a tuna and even was able to get avocado on it. As you can see, the sandwiches are nicely wrapped which is a plus if you are on the go.

My husband went with a honey turkey sandwich. We were pretty happy with sandwiches. We were not expecting gourmet -- just a simple sandwich. Overall, we were impressed with the quality of the vegetation. Just look at the lettuce!

In regards to coffee, I was THRILLED to get coffee in a mug. There was a bobble with my order and I was accidentally given a latte which is pictured above. The staff quickly corrected my ordered and served a yummy mocha latte.

Overall, we enjoyed the Perfect Blend and will definitely return. The cafe is small, so it can get a little loud. Other than that, we found the cafe to be a lovely spot for a little coffee and event a snack or sandwich. We were impressed with the variety of offerings and Perfect Blend. We will be back.
