German immigrant Joseph Dinkel opened this Chicago institution in 1922, and it’s remained in the family ever since. It’s changed very little in the past 90 years, and their non-donut baked goods are legendary in their own right. But you haven’t truly experienced Dinkel’s until you’ve tasted their handmade donuts. While they’ve jumped on the maple-bacon bandwagon, you’re best off sticking with the classics: try the chocolate cake donut and try to not to weep. — Dan Myers, 12/14/2012

Someone at work just brought in a box of doughnuts from this place. SOOOO GOOOOOOD. I must visit and try out some more!
Most Saturdays Dinkel's offers a maple bacon donut. You want this.
Try the Stollen.
I recommend the custard Bismark
BEST chocolate donuts in the city. Reminds me of the late great Davidson's Bakery donuts I grew up on.
Best doughnuts in the city! They do a big cake business too, but IMHO their frosting is not sweet enough. Stick to the doughnuts!
Although I usually don't like cream exploding in my mouth, these cream filled donuts were super good.
Some of the best donuts in Chicago & on Fat Tuesday their paczkis are a must eat.
Great hot chocolate
Baking in Lakeview since 1922, this popular German bakery turns out sour-cream doughnuts, German chocolate cookies and its signature “sip’n whisky cake,” a Bundt cake made with sour mash whiskey.
Don't miss the homestyle cakes in the fridge: simple yellow cake, chocolate, and red velvet. Buttercreamy!
BEWARE: bread loaves are charged by the pound, not each. Just bought a $5 challah.
Stop by in the summer months for fantastic caprese sandwiches (tied with a ribbon!). The best part? Only $4!
Best whipped cream frosting, and banana cupcakes!
Cafe now open! Plenty of space. Get your donut, pastry or cake and coffee or hot chocolate and sit by the tables.
Probably the best red velvet cupcake I've ever had, and I know red velvet cupcakes :)
Red velvet cupcakes!!! Just do it!
I got a apple fritter and chocolate frosted. Delish!
Tuesday. Cupcakes are buy 1,get 1 free. Consider yourself warned. :)
Buy 1 Get 1 free cupcakes every Tuesday!
The ham on Ziggy's Ham Sandwich is thickly cut, salty, still juicy—miles away from the usual thin and slimy cold cuts. All it needs is a smear of some potent mustard, and it's good to go.
