The Village Council has selected Tala Coffee as the preferred developer for the Village-owned property at 93 Green Bay Road, which is located on the southeast corner of Green Bay Road and Winnetka Avenue.
Tala Coffee currently has two locations, a café in Highwood and a roastery in Libertyville. They roast their own brand of coffee, feature a variety of original specialty drinks, and offer a light lunch menu. Tala’s plan for the site includes an indoor café with space for outdoor seating and a public gathering space. As part of a request for proposals for the redevelopment of the site, the Council considered Tala and two other food and drink operators. The Council ultimately selected Tala as its proposed use of the space was the best fit for the site and the greater community.
