The Upstairs Café commuter coffee shop at the Evanston Central Street Metra Station was a lively place early on the morning of Dec. 3. The café opened on Nov. 5 and  has been busy ever since. 

The new owners, Evanston residents Elizabeth Hubbard, Shelley Patterson and Gail Doeff, have brought their own creative energy and delicious baked goods to the café.

A change is that Ms. Patterson and Ms. Doeff, who both trained to be pastry chefs at Kendall College Culinary School, are baking and cooking on site. Freshly baked cookies, breads, scones and frittatas are daily offerings, along with donuts from Tag’s Bakery. 

Ms. Hubbard said that for their coffee-loving early-morning customers, the owners are buying locally from Alchemy in Wilmette.

Upstairs Café is open for business from 5:30 to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday.  The owners hope to host private/special events in the waiting room area as well as small meetings in the café itself.
