    If you want a quick bite, get some fresh scones from the counter. Best in Chicago. For a sit down meal, it's all in or nothing for the silverland. Be prepared for it to be crowded at peak brunch.

    If you call ahead , they will make an assortment square box for you. I ask to have the lemon square and other square cut in forth. Small little bite size pieces easy for all to share at the office.

    Our sandwiches were very good. Grilled cheese and BBQ pork. The BBQ had a touch of Tabasco, not hot just a bit of a tangy taste.cupcakes are great! Outdoor seating was great.

    Space is very limited, so get here when you start feeling hungry, or chances are, you have to wait!!! Food is good and plenty of options. Desserts are great, especially the cupcakes!!!

    Ask what their daily specials are; they always have a good quiche and a good soup. Individual sliced bread (banana,etc) is great to take home.

    Jeanine's cake is by far one of the most delicious cakes. Yellow layer cake with berries and buttercream and cream cheese frosting with streusel.

    The Brown Derby is excellent. Thanksgiving dinner in a wrap with turkey gravy for dipping. A personal favorite.

    Free Wi-Fi is the best complement to "free coffee Wednesday!" Only thing that makes it better is complimenting the friendly staff! ;) The wifi password is: cupcakes

    Nails the sweet end of the sweet-savory spectrum. Peaches 'n' Cream French Toast was decadent and delicious.

    Nice place to have a cup of coffee and people watch. The chocolate raspberry bar was not very good, but the latte was nice.

    Popular neighborhood joint with no personality; food is good but a bit pricey. Wedged in the center of A'ville between Ann Sathers and M. Henry, which are better options.

    Try not to inhale while biting down on a lemon bar. You'll stir up a dust storm of powdered sugar in your mouth and gag.

    Food was unremarkable. With so many options nearby, one would expect owners to up their game. The culture seems stuck in a bygone heyday. The place was nearly empty.
