Casual, cozy, family-friendly restaurant with a consistent menu and an extraordinary assortment of baked goods. The tres leches cake is a real treat! Food and service are consistent, but the bakery is the star of the show. Worth the trip if you have a sweet...More

We were taken here by people we had just met and it was a very good choice. The menu had a wide variety, it was quiet and restful on a busy Saturday night in Lincoln Square. Very civilized.

A very fine dining establishment and bakery in a lively Chicago neighborhood. Many interesting items on the menu - - I would call the fare "European-American fusion". I ordered a spicy shrimp scampi dish which was delicious and beautifully presented. My wife ordered a chicken...More

Went here on a Saturday for brunch with my boyfriend and 2 friends. Had about a 30 - 35 minute wait (around 11:45 a.m.), but that was expected. Firstly, it's LOUD inside. The waitress could not hear me from 2 feet away and I kept...More
