Burglars Smashed Ipsento 606's Milwaukee Avenue Storefront Tuesday, Stole Money & Valuables

Ipsento 606, the second outpost of Logan Square's beloved Ipsento Coffee, opened last year at 1813 N. Milwaukee Ave. near The 606, announced the robbery on Instagram Tuesday morning, saying: "Attention: Our 606 location was broken into early this morning. Thankfully no one was hurt. This has been happening throughout the neighborhood. Local business be aware."

In an update around 10:00 a.m., reps from the coffee shop added that they have temporarily fixed their front door and are back in business: "UPDATE!! We are now open for business! Got our door temporarily fixed. Still in good spirits but come say hey and support us on this sad day."

A store manager told DNAinfo that the burglars stole money and other belongings from the business, sometime in the early hours Tuesday morning. Director of Retail Harris Nash told Chicagoist that the burglars likely took at least $3,000 to 5,000 worth of belongings and cash from the shop, including cash drawers, a safe, an employee's bicycle and an iPad.

"Mainly, we want people to know that we're still open," Nash said. "We'd love support, it's a hard time of year for us anyway, so this happened on top of that."

Nash noted that Ipsento 606 is one of several coffee shops to experience burglaries in recent weeks, including Gaslight in Logan Square and Wormhole in Wicker Park.
