|Baked goods at Goddess and the Baker|
In the summer of Wonder Woman, it seems imperative that we explore Goddess and the Baker. [Note: no comparison between these artisan goods and Wonder Bread].
On a Chicago Food Planet walking tour, we saw an outpost of The Goddess and Grocer on the Gold Coast and its impressive array of specialty foods. Then, right by our hotel, the Kimpton Allegro, was a related Goddess and The Baker. This seemed like the ideal spot to have breakfast. [There is also lunch, dinner, beer and wine - it's an all day affair].
Goddess and The Baker has counter service - you order and get a buzzer, and pick up your food. At the Wacker and LaSalle location, where we ate, there is outdoor seating.

Of course, there's avocado toast, and a hummus and brussels sprouts toast (again, too early for me). We went with the sweet side, a chocolate chip scone and a croissant. The croissant was kind of disappointing; it didn't taste all that fresh. But the scone, while maybe even less breakfast appropriate than brussels sprouts, was so good we inhaled it before I had a chance to photograph it.
