Our Favorites

1. Big Star Wicker Park: The original location of the bourbon and beer focused taco restaurant featuring a huge, dog friendly, outdoor patio. Great salads and vegan options available!

2. Milk and Honey: Gourmet sandwiches, fresh salads, made from scratch soups, and house-baked pastries. While they have a great breakfast menu, Sharon loves going to Milk and Honey during lunch for their grilled chicken sandwich.

3. Alliance Bakery: Fine European pastries and desserts. This bakery is particularly special because Marissa’s wedding cake was custom-made in their kitchen.

4. Penelope’s: Relaxed nook selling European and U.S. brands of casual apparel and accessories for men, women, and kids.

5. Fairgrounds Coffee and Tea: Craft coffee, tea, and matcha cafe offering a selection of sandwiches, salads, and local pastries.

6. Asrai Garden: One of Marissa’s favorite stops for flowers and an escape into nature. Walking into their storefront is nothing short of magical.

7. Violet Hour: A truly unique experience with pre-prohibition style libations, and a seasonally rotating cocktail list. The exterior is a discrete facade- you’ll know you’re there when you see the long line outside.

8. Etta: Neighborhood hot spot with a locally sourced New American menu of wood-fired fare and brunch plates.

9. Sprout San Francisco: Chicago outpost of the San Francisco-based shop offering organic and eco-conscious children's goods.

10. Infiniteus Rocks and Juice: Metaphysical crystal store that also serves cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and cleanses mixes.
