The name of this Rogers Park bakery is far from a smoke signal. In fact, it references thin, slightly chewy coils of joy; chimney cakes are a Transylvanian treat baked on a stick (hence the cylindrical shape). The cakes come plain, dusted in cinnamon and rolled in coconut or sesame seeds, but the version slathered with Nutella and coated with walnuts is about as decadent, and delicious, as it gets. Get your cake to go, or hang out in the mod café and enjoy it with a Lavazza coffee.
