People Magazine just came out with a list of “24 Coffee Shops in America You Have to Visit,” and lo and behold, a Kane County shop was No. 5 on the list.
Graham’s 318 Coffeehouse in Geneva was one of the independent coffeehouses chosen from across the county, from Harlem in New York City to Austin, TX, to Missoula, MT, to Los Angeles, CA.
“These quaint cafes have serious caffeine cred,” according to the People Magazine “Great Ideas” series.
Graham’s 318 was praised for more than its java.
“Not a coffee drinker? This popular spot has a pastry kitchen upstairs, where bakers prepare delightful cakes, muffins, croissants and more. The real decadence? Their homemade gelato,” People says.

Independent coffeehouses are about more than just coffee. They are a place for people to meet, to discuss life-happenings, to plan the next big adventure, to create something, to strum the house guitar, to sit quietly with someone, to start a revolution.
Our coffeehouse is a community staple. Established in 2005, it is a welcoming environment with awesome locally roasted Metropolis espresso & coffee, fresh pastries and homemade gelato made entirely on-site, chocolate fondue, sandwiches & salads during lunchtime made with the freshest ingredients and homemade breads. We support local artists and have a different art exhibit every month and live music outside on our patio. We were voted Best Independent Coffeehouse in 2011 and 2013.
We are family run, and we love being a part of this community.
