Health warned! – I was keen on this place because I'd read about it in Chicago Magazine a while back. So my boyfriend and I got there around 2:15PM today. We placed our orders and were looking forward to a great meal. While doing so, I started watching the cooks. I noticed one cook, a tall, older guy picking his teeth with his index finger. I stared at him long enough and we made eye contact. He kept going and wasn't the least bit concerned that I'd caught him. I watched him proceed to handle all sorts of dishes and ingredients with his bare hands. He did not stop to wash his hands! I called over the hostess and told her what he'd done. She suggested that someone else would prepare our food. We decided to leave anyway. Of course they had the good sense to charge us for the lemonade we barely drank! Needless to say, we'll NEVER return. With all the viruses going around these days, the last thing anyone needs is to get sick because some cook decided to pick his teeth and then handle food intended for customers.

Cheery nook offers far more than its namesake sweet treat. – Convivial Edgewater neighborhood crowds don’t mind waiting for a table in this casual, sun-drenched cafe with oversized windows, granite tables and an open kitchen. Eggs Benedict, French toast and a classic, stick-to-the-ribs Irish breakfast usher in the dawn. From there, the menu goes globe-trotting: bouillabaisse, beef bourguignon and chicken tikka masala are well traveled favorites. Not surprisingly, the cafe’s namesake makes several star appearances: as a coffee drink, a cocktail and, of course, a dessert.
