“Our favorite place for coffee in Champaign-Urbana. We recommend the specialty lattes, they're all phenomenal. Flying Machine Coffee is also a good work space to hunker down in for a few hours. Flying Machine Coffee also shares a space with "Pizza M", a kind of hipster pizzeria we frequent. Our favorite is probably the "Pear & Brie" pizza, with the titular "The Pizza M" a close second. ”

“Located in the heart of downtown Urbana at the corner of Race and Green. Even if you are not a cardholder you can use the library (and check out). The UFL is home to The Champaign County Historical Archives. This room will support your research of local history and genealogy with both physical and online resources. There's also a coffee shop inside + a sweet little children's playscape.”
