Drawing from the impressionist ideal of painting outdoors, partners Soo Choi and Kevin Heisner have made Chicago's Plein Air Café a dreamy space.

This French-inspired café is both cozy and well lit and provides hospitality as warm as its decor: Co-owner Choi often greets regulars with a kiss on the cheek. There’s a great little nook in the back, as well as an outdoor table that encircles a planter filled with gorgeous flowers. With options to curl up with a book and a cappuccino or watch the Hyde Park passersby, Plein Air Café is the quintessential community spot.
