Went on Bucktown -Wicker food tour. Had the Iced chocolate with the homemade marshmallow. It was like having a decadent drinkable dessert. Will come back for lunch and to try the pastry. My favorite place on the food tour.

Been waiting to make a trip to Chicago and this was a spot I was going too. Had lunch. The burger was excellent. I added the egg on top. All cooked to perfection. As a pastry chef who owns a bakery, I looked forward to trying desserts. We tried the Strawberry Shortcake, Blackberry blueberry tart and a cake of the... More

Great service at bar, the hot chocolate is a staple. Always a enjoyable family outing. New doughnuts with jam a family favorite.

We tried this place off of a recommendation from one of our vendors. It did not disappoint! We went for breakfast (brunch they open at 10), sat at the bar and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The bartender was very nice, knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. We loved the feel in this place and since we are big time foodies, we... More

Went to Mindy's Hot Chocolate on a Friday afternoon. It is a cute place to have lunch with friends over some creative and delicious meals in a casual yet inviting atmosphere. It is evident that high end ingredients are used in putting together their recipes. The meals were simple but tasted well above what the average comfort food tastes like.... More

My wife and I came in to enjoy dinner and were pleasantly surprised. I had the steak which was done to perfection. My wife had the chicken which she also enjoyed. The best part obviously was the hot chocolate, which has thick, rich and huge. You can definitely share a large cup with that special someone.

I really wanted to like Mindy's. I think my expectations were so high when I went that I was going to be disappointed no matter what. I had heard fantastic things about Mindy's, but I didn't experience any of it. First, the portions were average. I expected more for the price. And for that price, I expected better quality. Dessert... More

This little cozy spot is a delicious find for anyone who likes food. Every dish was absolutely amazing. Adults and teens alike loved the food, which was high quality, locally produced (as much as possible) and farm to table fresh. The wine by the glass that was available was of unbelievable quality, and the beers that were available were interesting... More
