Nobletree Coffee is a new spot that offers specialty coffees produced on its own farms and sourced from around the world. 

Choose from an array of espresso drinks, including Americanos, lattes and mochas. Or try the cold brew, matcha or chai (hot or iced, depending on the weather.)

Yelp users are excited about Nobletree Coffee, which currently holds 4.5 stars out of eight reviews on the site.

Yelper Raymart D., who reviewed Nobletree Coffee on Feb. 28, wrote, "What a beautiful space to get coffee in. There is mixed seating with bar and tables with ample daylight filling the space with floor to ceiling windows. They have coffee, lattes, cortados, cappuccinos and pastries."

Jennifer P. noted, "This is some strong coffee! I loved it. I had a drip coffee, and it has the robust coffee flavor so many coffees lack. Way to raise the coffee standard!"

Nobletree Coffee is open from 7 a.m.–8 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m.–9 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m.–8 p.m. on Sunday.

Sawada Coffee is another coffee spot new to the city.

The shop, which also has locations in Chicago, serves green tea lattes, cortados, pour-over coffee, cold brew and more. It also offers alcoholic coffee beverages, like the Boozy Steamer with scotch, honey, almond and milk. (View the full menu here.)

With a five-star rating out of six reviews on Yelp, Sawada Coffee has been getting positive attention.

Wen Jin G. noted, "The black camo latte was so beautiful and very aesthetically pleasing. It's backed up with a very balanced and subtle combination of hojicha and coffee—goes together well. It's nutty and slightly robust, with just enough caffeine to pack a punch. I really enjoyed my latte, and it was the perfect ending to my meal. Will be back again to try other drinks!"

Yelper Valerie C. wrote, "Beyond ecstatic that I can get my black camo latte here (espresso + roasted hojicha). Love!"

Sawada Coffee is open from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. daily.

Last but not least, there's Matchaful, a new pop-up cafe that's riding the Japanese green tea trend with an array of matcha drink options, from the "Cacao Dream" to the "Autumn Spice." 

Matchaful currently holds four stars out of 45 reviews on Yelp, indicating a good response from visitors.

Yelper Andy B., who reviewed Matchaful on Feb. 17, wrote, "The service was slow, but the guy behind the bar was cool and very attentive. Took a while to get the matcha but very well worth the wait."

Sarah H. noted, "I really enjoyed my matcha latte with almond milk, and my boyfriend really enjoyed his matcha latte with macadamia nut milk. I thought it was really well balanced, not too sweet and not too bitter. They source their matcha straight from Japan, which is nice. At $6, I thought my latte was reasonably priced."

Matchaful is open from 8 a.m.–8 p.m. on Monday-Saturday and 9 a.m.–7 p.m. on Sunday.
