Not to mention, the interior is inviting, funky, and the kind of space where you can curl up with a good book and forget that you aren't at home. The music is at the perfect setting for conversation or to hear yourself think. Delicious vegan soups and mouthwatering baked goods provide sustenance, along with a plethora of beverages. Mother Fool's features temporary art exhibits and live music on the weekends. Can your coffeehouse do all this? Didn't think so....
I sat down to chat with co-owner Jon Hain to get the lowdown:
I have always appreciated the arts and am a musician and artist myself (photographer).
I have always been fascinated with street art and heard about permission walls many years ago. I contacted my alder and around that same time an artist expressed an interest in painting the wall. The three of us had a meeting and the first piece was done on 9/11/01.
Where do you see Mother Fool's in five years?
Now you see why I wanted to share this hidden gem - to be sure everyone makes their way to 1101 Williamson Street (better known as Willy St.)
