Chicago's weather might feel like anything but Hawaii now, but you can still get a taste of the islands at the CTA's Belmont stop.

Maui Wowi Hawaiian, a gourmet coffee and smoothie bar, is now open at the train station. It can serve customers from inside the station or the street.

"It's these types of facilities that offer fresh coffee, fresh smoothies, that tie the neighborhood into our rail stations to make them a welcoming place," head of CTA Forrest Claypool said.

The CTA hopes to add more concession stands to stops in various communities.
