The Perfect Cup is a cozy, independently-owned coffeeshop at the corner of Damen and Leland avenues that has become wildly popular.
In January, the shop closed for two days to revamp the cafe space and open an additional room to accommodate the crowds, enjoying flaky pastries and free wi-fi.
“But we’re still filling up,” said barista Lizz Gardner.
The extra seating brought extra wall-space, too. The Perfect Cup filled the walls with a constantly-changing exhibit of paintings by artists from the neighborhood.
