last week was a recap of the chicago sights we visited, but this week is all about the food. nomnom.
picked up a delicious mocha (for me) and chai latte (for Boy Wonder) at SFO before our flight. they feature flying goat coffee from healdsburg – I had never heard of them before, but with a name like flying goat, I’ll have to keep an eye out for whole beans from them.
brunchwork of art at wildberry. everyone else went for egg dishes, but I seriously needed to see what these crepes looked like in person. also – ridiculously amazing apple cider (from michigan apples) in that intelligentsia mug!
afternoon almond milk tea from saint’s alp teahouse to warm me up.
spotted the cutest gallery wall at ghiradelli while we were waiting for hot chocolate (chicago + warm drinks go very well together).
I did NOT KNOW that there was a magnolia bakery in chicago! if I did, I would’ve saved some room in my tummy for that signature magnolia swirl.
they also have the cutest floors ***
I have been dying to try ann sather’s cinnamon rolls ever since I saw ted allen talk about them on the best thing i ever ate. dying. and if you’re still unconvinced by the video and the photo, lemme tell you, they were amazazing.
heritage bicycles wins the hipster award. (the chai was pretty good too.)
seriously though. so cute!
after dessert at bang bang, we walked straight to big star for linner. we took advantage of the sun and grabbed a table out on the patio then put on a margarita-poncho to combat the wind. I’ll be daydreaming about that guac & chips today.
