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.

Went twice. First time, my girlfriend substituted a bread for a sandwich cause of a severe allergy which was made known, and it came with that bread anyways after waiting about 15 min for it. So, my food ended up getting cold waiting for hers. Second time, I ordered a sandwich that came with missing ingredients, and very skimpy on the ones that were on there. After approaching the cashier, I was informed that "Oh yeah, we are out of sprouts.", and that I would have to pay for a new sandwich if I wanted a new one with no mention of a refund as an option. She just said sorry and I walked away not eating anything when the other three members of my party were. Then, after having enough, I went and asked for a refund, and she obliged. Total lack of attentiveness, customer service, or initiative. Scathing reviews are not a habit of mine, but this place is a joke

Love the artsy atmosphere, great cup of coffee, good sandwiches & scones and lovely outdoor seating
