THE CORONA CAFE, 531 Rush Street

The Corona, located a block west of Tribune Tower, is mostly an eating place of the men who work on the Chicago Tribune. There is both counter and table service and the sandwiches are appetizing and quickly prepared for men who have to make "deadlines". James O'Donnell Bennett, feature writer, and author of "Much Loved Books", and such other feature writers of the Tribune as Phil Kinsley, James Doherty, John Boettiger, Arthur M. Evans, Oscar Hewitt, Edward Burns, Harvey T. Woodrufif, and Bob Becker, are seen almost daily in the Corona.
