A tipster turned us onto a new eatery in the works for 5th Avenue in Hillcrest called La Marque, which is billing itself as a "coffee & craft haus".
On the coffee side, La Marque will carry seven to eight coffee brands, from local favorites Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and Cafe Moto to Chicago's Intelligentsia and imports from Italy. A menu of coffee and espresso drinks can be customized by your choice of roaster; prices will vary.
They're still waiting for their beer and wine license, but when it comes through, expect the beer to be a mix of locals and harder-to-find varieties. The eatery which plans to open in June, will serve a light breakfast menu in the morning; at lunch, a food truck will provide salad, sandwiches and cheese and meat boards.
