Delightful may boast some delicious pastries, cakes and a stellar tea list (alongside some amazing seasonal eggnog), but don't go for the service. They kick you out if you're sitting at a table too long and the owner possesses anything but Midwestern charm. However, if I still go back for the cake knowing all of that, it must be good.
best sweets in town – Delightful Pastries is a family owned bakery, which still has a down to earth feel. The smell of baking hits you when you walk through the door and the Owners Mother will let you sample what you are thinking of buying. The is an amazing selection of french pastries, cookies and bread and you can buy so much more that other bakeries in Chicago, because the prices are so reasonable.
I have never been in an American Bakery where they will give your children a cookie to try while their parents are making their selection.
Kudo's to Delightful Pastries, the only place in Chicago where they have successfully paired American and European traditions.
