We always try to hit local coffee shops when traveling and Civilization was worth a trip. The Tremont area is picturesque and felt like a small town. The setting for the coffee shop is a cool old pharmacy and the characteristics are still there. The...More

I'm here regularly on my way to work. Civilization makes espresso just the way I like it - NOT sour like a lot of other small cafes. It's a good place to grab breakfast on the go or to sit down for a light lunch.

This is not another same-old Starbucks. This place is UNIQUE, a place with lots of atmosphere, great coffee selection, and delicious pastries. It is a MUST in the Tremont neighborhood.

Located in the downtown neighborhood of Tremont, this lunch spot reminded us of the Ballard area in Seattle. Nice vibe, lovely baked goods, delicious croissant sandwiches and some outdoor tables make a lovely spot to spend a relaxing hour or two.
