Editorial Review

Northside Social sports an upstairs wine bar; sells nice pastries, sandwiches and breakfast items; and hosts cooking classes and demonstrations. Owned by the same group that runs nearby restaurants Liberty Tavern and Lyon Hall, the cafe specializes in food as well as coffee; it serves pastries baked fresh daily and the sandwiches, soups and cheese selection are overseen by restaurant group executive chef Liam LaCivita. With free WiFi, a comfortable dining room and a friendly staff, the coffee shop has quickly become a neighborhood favorite.
