We (and DePaul students) come here for the Hobbit, a triple-decker BLT on sourdough with sun-dried–tomato pesto, mayo, bacon, avocado and alfalfa sprouts, but end up staying for the homemade apple dumplings and fine selection of teas. There’s plenty of people-watching at this quirky Lincoln Park standby, too, though if you’re feeling antisocial, order that Old Man and the Sea tuna sandwich delivered—but please, no hot coffee deliveries, unless you’re lucky or rich enough to live next door.
