...And you're never too old to have one. Or a half-dozen. Here's where I get my fix.
The kid in all if us goes gangbusters @ this sugar shack. The mintrageous cookies are insane, cupcakes dreamy & key lime pie pucker-inducing
Come for the macarons and cutely shaped sugar cookies, stay for the Metropolis coffee. I love the low-key staffers.
Swing by in the a.m. for the "egg in a hole" or scone and a coffee, or any time for an Airstream (aka Twinkie), a cake ball, or a house-made s'more.
Everything in the bakery case is so pretty & tempting, but I say go for the Double Doozie (cookie sandwich w/ vanilla frosting). Good coffee too. A nice spot to hang out.
A donut shop by morning & a cookie bar by afternoon/evening=genius! Try the Priscilla Presley & Minty Nom Nom cookies, or create an ice cream sandwich w/ their tasty gelato.
Tasty breakfast pastries and coffee, and excellent baguette sandwiches for lunch, fab cakes. Pack a picnic and hike over to Millennium Park.
Cute shop run by a sweet lady- a refreshing departure from the shop's ultra-chic neighbors. Great brownies and a tasty Greek chicken sammy.
