“Not to be Missed on the North Shore Part II”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Though ownership has changed hands since we visited a year ago quality is unchanged. I am not a big fan of pizza, but this was truly a four star meal and the best pizza I have ever enjoyed.
We kept it simple - a cheese pizza with Canadian Bacon and mushrooms on whole grain crust. We were informed there would be a 45 minute wait they don't serve frozen pizza, made from scratch, all fresh ingredients.
The wait was made easier by draft beers from Alaskan and Great Lakes as well as a large selection of wines and bottled beers.
Try to save room for bakery fresh desserts- good luck!

“Sandwiches”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Had "to-go" sandwiches from here while planting trees all weekend; delicious bread, excellent sandwiches. Just wish I could have had more than one.

“Lucky Us”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

While vacationing on the Northshore we chanced upon Chicago Bay Marketplace while searching for a community dance in Hovland. Not only did we get directions to Ole Olsen Old Time Orkestra but the best blueberry pie ever! We even made an out of the way trip to sample their carmel rolls the next day.

“Not to be Missed on the North Shore”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

Whether traveling up or down US61 on the North Shore of Lake Superior, Chicago Bay Marketplace is a great place to stop for:
Early morning fresh from the oven cinnamon rolls
Noon deli sandwich on fresh baked whole grain bread with a cup of soup
Supper hot from the oven pizza on homemade crust

This is just a really neat place to stop. The food is really delicious with great hospitality provided by a lady who is a monument to old fashioned entrepreneurship.
