Bittersweet

by gastronomicbypass

Location – 1114 W. Belmont (at Clifton)

In one word – Macaroons
Food – This bakery offers a small but fabulous lunch. They serve a quiche and soup of a day, along with some salad options. My eating partner and I each had the tomato artichoke quiche and the green salad. I found it to be the perfect portion for a weekend lunch. Given that it is a bakery, you have to indulge in their wide selection of pastries. We ordered the pistachio macaroons. Lucky for me, the macaroons are larger than average. It was the perfect ending to the meal.

Drink – They have coffee and tea drinks here. My eating partner had coffee, and I chose iced tea.

Service – The menu is small, so there’s not a whole lot of ways to mess up an order. I liked our server, she was attentive but wasn’t too intrusive.

Dress – Don’t bother dressing up. We came to seek refuge during Chicago winter weather dressed in Uggs and sweatshirts. We fit in perfectly.

Cost – We each paid $15 for the quiche, green salad, a macaroon and tea/coffee. I thought this was really reasonable.
