Whether you're rushing to work or you wake up starving only to find you're down to crumbs at the bottom of the cereal box, sometimes you need a quick a.m. meal.
Come for the macarons and cutely shaped sugar cookies, stay for the Metropolis coffee. I love the low-key staffers.
You haven't lived til you've scarfed a plate of bread pudding pancakes! The burger is amazing too, though. Whatever your meal, don't leave w/o a vanilla cupcake.
A solid pick for morning pastries and lunchtime sammies (they're HUGE!). Try the pumpkin muffin or the cranberry chicken salad sandwich.
There’s nothing flashy about this pastry shop and cafe, from its understated, tranquil blue interior to its rotating lineup of vegan (and non!) sweets. Try the whimsical cereal-topped doughnut.
The selection is small but choose wisely and you'll be rewarded richly. Ask the staff what's freshest. Strong coffee is a bonus.
You don't have to love French fare to dig this huge indoor market. Spots like Saigon Sisters, a juice bar, a frites vendor, and a pasta spot have a lunch treat for any craving.
A fab spot to cleanse what ales ya. Smoothies are uber-tasty (try the Rastafarian Breakfast). Also juice cleanse options & raw foods galore.
Who doesn't love a yummy doughnut--esp when it's in a fancy flavor like pb&j or maple-bacon?! Cute storefront w/ fun employees. Grab a cuppa Metropolis coffee too!
By far the most adorable storefront in the city. Plan to Bring your laptop & stay awhile. Pies are great, of course, but do NOT overlook the buttery biscuits.
Lunch I always feel good about. Quinoa bowls are outta this world...and affordable. Love the Newport Salad too. Order online & skip the wait
Tasty breakfast pastries and coffee, and excellent baguette sandwiches for lunch, fab cakes. Pack a picnic and hike over to Millennium Park.
