    Mexicana shake gets all the buzz, but the mocha shake is also a great bet.

    You can’t have a good pizza without a good crust, and if you want good crust, heading to a bakery is a no-brainer. Expect options on crust at this spot along with funky and various toppings Read more

    I always recommend the Med(s) to those visiting Hyde Park. Café au lait, pastries, fruit pies and tarts, etc. Their OJ was always warm and sunny during my AM... in religion.

    Tried and true, the croissants at the Medici on 57th are well worth the walk from campus as they're super buttery and dense.

    One of my favorite spots in Hyde Park. In the winter, enjoy yummy hot chocolate and write your name in one of the booths. In the summer, you have to eat brunch on the rooftop patio. Everything's good.

    The "garbage" pizza is great! Went back after 20 plus years and it was still the same atmosphere, tastes, just everything! If you order fries, just one order will do for up to 3 persons! Just great!
