First Slice (Albany Park) – Great Cause, Great Food, Even Great Salad

First Slice in Albany Park is one of a group of three community service non profit cafes in the Chicago area.

This one is located at 4664 N Manor Ave, Chicago between Francisco Ave and Leland Ave, and is practically 5 steps from the Francisco Brown Line El Station and it is almost impossible to miss unless you take the following route which I recommend as you get to see some really nice swans.

The cafe has a terrific selection of soups, salads, quiches, sandwich, lasagna and specials. It also has some great cookies and a whole stack of cakes. I had a slice of bacon and sweet onion quiche which came with a mixed green salad mixed with finely sliced radish and chunks of apple dressed with a tart vinaigrette. It was so tasty I actually ate the salad which I personally usually view as something to cover the empty spot on the plate where the fries should go, so it must have been damned good.

There are so many good things on the menu that I shall have to return. It is closed on Mondays but open every other day until 7.30pm. website
