They had us at hello, those dreamy, creamy cupcakes. (Us and every other Chicagoan with taste buds.) This sweet-as-can-be little bakeshop may have cornered the local market with its simple little chocolate and yellow cakes slathered in a colorful array of buttercreams, but there’s much more to salivate over here. We like the puddings (butterscotch, chocolate, banana with Nilla wafers), the crispy, big-as-your-head cookies, the seasonal fruit crisps, the whoopie pies. We haven’t found a dud here yet.

Oh my god, this spot is the most dangerous in Chicago. Everything is amazing, but you must have a super sweet tooth to appreciate it. I highly recommend the frosted molasses cookie when it's available. I'm about to go leave and buy one right now.
Everything is delicious here. Repeat: EVERYTHING. I usually opt for their flourless chocolate cake, which I would normally pass on because the texture can sometimes be unappealing, but they do some sort of wizardry here that gives it an almost mousse-like quality and it is amazing. Other stand outs are their lemon bars, any of the cheesecake options, and and the turtle brownie. Come hungry, friends!
