  1. That place is definitely dessert heaven! OMG, I would have gone nuts in there. I regret not trying an Italian Beef sandwich while there as well as the combo of beef and sausage (even better, I’ll say).

      Oh gosh, I know – I love bakeries like this! I wish I could have tried more! Maybe you’ll return to Chicago one day and get to try one. Jake and I still want to try that place I told you about in the hood. We’re hoping the next time we go they have the Italian beef so I can write about it!

    It’s tough when you don’t like you beef dipped. There’s such pleasure in saying “beef……juicy….hot” and not getting slapped or arrested. My personal favorite is Johnnie’s. Though Mr Beef (on Dunning) is quite good. I’ve also been to Al’s, Portillo’s, Buona, and a couple of other places.

      Hi Kirk –
      If we are ever in Chicago again I’ll have to try it at a few more places. Maybe I’ll get brave and try it dipped. It could happen!
