  • 3 words: goat cheese appetizer.
  • Love the "diy" Cafe au Lait! Yum-yum!
  • Their garbage pizza, chilly cheese fries :) salmon Benedict for brunch!
  • A favorite of students, faculty, and staff of the University of Chicago Law School, including former professors Barack Obama and Elena Kagan.
  • The croissants are beyond delicious.
  • You can get blueberry pancakes instead of normal pancakes in a breakfast combo for only $0.30 extra!
  • One dollar pastries if you come later at night.
  • Get the spinach lasagne! Sooooo goood! Start out with the guacamole and chips. Best guacamole I've ever had!!
  • Pastries as big as your head.
  • They might as well rename the "Kirsten's Favorite" to "Chris's Favorite"
  • Come here after 10pm. All the pastries are only a dollar
  • The kitchen gladly makes gluten-free and allergy-free substitutions, such as quesadillas made with corn instead of flour tortillas. No peanuts are on the menu, though the attached bakery does use nuts
  • Agree with all the hype over the Mexicana shake! Delicious!
  • Get mediterranean pizza!
  • get the mocha milkshake
  • Save room for dessert (huge sundaes!), or at least a float or a milkshake. The Mexicana milkshake is especially delicious.
  • Wonderful pepperoni pizza!
  • You cant have a good pizza without a good crust, and if you want good crust, heading to a bakery is a no-brainer. Expect options on crust at this spot along with funky and various toppings
  • Portobello sandwich
