This restaurant has been acknowledged by the James Beard foundation. I opted for the panini of the day which was turkey confit, cranberry, cheese, sauce and a tea. Since I was alone they offered me a seat at the bar but a table is where...More

Nothing worse than hot chocolate that doesn’t hit the mark and it’s often very variable. You wont go wrong here. Not cheap but worth it. This is a real treat to enjoy on a cold day in Chicago. Order extra hot if like me you...More

Cute, warm little café. Had the earl grey tea at the bar and a lovely talk with friends. The sweets and other beverages looked great. Quiet during the day

Meh, our dessert experience wasn’t great nor bad. The hostess was not warm or welcoming. We sat at the community table and I overheard her several times being short with other guests coming in to inquire on the wait. Service was okay but not expected...More

We were stuffed but from some reason I couldn't pass up Mindy's. Ordered an iced dark hot chocolate. Took one sip and turned around to buy hot chocolate to take home. Delicious!!!! I don't care for marshmallows and I ate two. Worth the stop.

Homemade marshmallows do I need to say anything more? I have gone here multiple times. Very accommodating for any group size. A little pricey but worth every cent spent. The hot chocolate is out of this world and so is the french toast. Great vibe...More

I'm reviewing this place for what it is: an upscale dessert restaurant & bar. $$$$. My hot chocolate was exceptionally good (and exceptionally expensive at $8). A nice treat for every once in a while I suppose, but not a place to frequent.
