Angel Bakery at Lincoln Square Farmer’s Market

I was perusing the Angel Food Bakery stall at the Thursday night farmers market in the Western CTA car park near Lincoln Square and spyed some savoury treats to take home for a lunch time snack.   I bought a couple of these interesting looking savoury pies which when I got the home found out that they…

Slim’s in Ravenswood is not so shady

On the face of it Slim’s would appear to be be just another hot dog and burger joint but it is slightly more than the sum of its parts. I have to be honest that I thought that calling a fast food joint Slims was a bit tongue in cheek. I really wanted to be greeted…

City Provisions delicatessen

Finally with the sunshine out and a clear blue sky I had the time and the energy to get back out on the El Stop Food Hunt. Thanks to advice from Twitter I headed over to Wilson and Wolcott following the curve of the Brown line to find City Provisons. Located right beneath the line in…

Golden Angel – old school diner

Sunday breakfast sometimes ends up being brunch and on occasions like this weekend gets dangerously close to dinner. Wandering along Lincoln Avenue debating whether it was too late to jump on the el to find a new stop and a new eatery I passed by the Golden Angel Resturant and Pancake House for about the…

Breakfast at Glenn’s Diner

Glenn’s Diner is situated in sight of the Montrose Brown CTA el station and really you cannot miss it, both visually and in actual fact you really ‘should not’ miss eating here. Midweek the place opens at 11am and even then there were quite a few in for breakfast. I went for the chive and…

More Marmalade

This place is so good that it was very unlikely that I would not be returning. I was amazed that it took this long. On this occasion it was a rare treat as I had my mother over from the UK and having two great breakfast brunch spots to take her too on my door step…

Fountainhead

This is one of my favourite Chicago bars and it is very handy that it is located mere steps from where I live, that is also quite dangerous as it stays open late (2am on average) so if you fancy a quick beer or little tasty snack it is as good as dialling for a…

Spacca Napoli Pizzeria

Lets just get right down to it. This place has great Italian Pizza Forget Chicago style, Brooklyn, or New York pizza. This is how pizza should be cooked. The menu is divided up into pizze rosa and pizze bianca (red and white pizza basically with or without a tomato sauce). I went from the white side…

Halloween cup cakes and more at Sweet Sensations

 I have commented previously about Sweet Sensations on West Montrose Ave in particular with their Lemon Meringue cup cakes with whom I have an ongoing taste sensation love affair.  I dont often get a chance to call in midday so I think I may miss out on some of their other excellent offferings such as their savoury cheese and…
