This is the go to neighborhood place to meet friends and share a sweet. The homemade cookies and cupcakes taste so fresh, because they are made daily. Get there early, as once they are gone, they are gone!

Nothing fancy, but the food was good. I had the oatmeal and it was delicious with granola and dried cherries on top. I did have to ask for milk (twice). Two had the omelet of the day and the fourth had French Toast (Peaches & Cream) and thought it was delicious. There is a lot of food served, the place... More

I had a mocha soya decaf and it was truly delicious with a really good balance between chocolate and coffee taste. The pastries looked delicious too! Super friendly service on top of everything!

Andersonville offers some quaint, small restaurants that pride themselves in quality food and service. After picking up my college kid from DePaul we recently made a side trip to Andersonville and decided on Taste of Heaven for lunch. The atmosphere feels like an English countryside home accessorized by a few antiques, cozy and charming. They have a combined breakfast and... More

It is hard to choose what to eat here. Everything I have tasted is EXCELLANT...But do youself a favor and leave some room for dessert. It you lick your plate clean (like me), then, make sure you order some delicious dessert to take with you. Fun resturant with excellant, pleasant staff in a fun neighborhood.

I ordered Pulled Pork BBQ sandwich, disappointing, right out of a can with some added roasted red pepper & red onion. My wife's turkey/bacon was uneventful also, bland. Bakery items and breakfast items looked much better. I recommend if you go that you go with bakery and breakfast entrées. Otherwise there appeared to be many better choices of where to... More

Ignore the review about bad hospitality - this place has it all: VERY friendly server, superb home made from scratch entrees and baked goods, charming atmosphere without being hokey, just a great neighborhood spot in Andersonville. Only a few years old, already justly popular. Go for creative diner-style cuisine, pastries, coffee, tea. You will not be disappointed.

I've been to this restaurant many times given it's proximity to my home. Most times I've not had any first-hand experience of the bad attitude the owner displays to many with whom he's had direct contact. He's a baker primarily turning out wonderful cakes and scones but he's not a person who should be in the hospitality industry. Today I... More

This is a nice place to simply hang out. The menu is hearty, and simple. If you enjoy sweet things, they have a good desert menu.

I love this bakery and restaurant. Every time we come back to Chicago to visit - we make a stop here. They have delicious baked goods and the friendliest staff. This time I took my mother-in-law and she said "These are the best scones, ever!" I said, "I know - right?!" On Wednesdays they offer free coffee with a purchase... More
