Another neighborhood favorite. They always have fabulous desserts - love going with a few people to share a couple.

I enjoy coming here to do some quiet work. The breakfast is great, home made everything. I've come here for a dessert cupcake after dinner or a coffee while shopping downtown Andersonville. Great little place!

Happened to be in the Andersonville neighborhood at lunchtime on a weekday, got hungry, and was attracted by the "breakfast all day!" sign. There aren't very many tables so I imagine breakfast here would be quite crowded. The three of us got the last table right away and counted ourselves lucky. Menu is extensive and diverse, focusing on traditional breakfasts... More

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.
