Ravinia Coffee Station is trying to put a new meaning on local business.

Josh Weisbart, the owner of the new Ravinia Coffee Station on St. Johns Avenue near Roger Williams Avenue in the Ravinia neighborhood, is trying to give the term local business a new meaning.

Weisbart opened his coffee shop—he also sells pastries—Nov. 11 featuring Chicago’s Passion House coffee. And, Chicago is the location of his most distant import.

“All our pastry is fresh from Bent Fork in Highwood,” Weisbart said. “The bagels and donuts are from Once Upon a Bagel.” And, he only has to walk about 100 yards to work from his residence.

Listen to Weisbart talk about Ravinia Coffee Station on a Patch Video.
