Dinkel's Bakery is a classic old time Bakery and coffee shop in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. The doughnuts are wonderful, firm and flavorful. The other treats are equally delicious. We had a torte that was a chocolate and strawberry combination. Just the best. This...More

Dinkel's Bakery at 3329 North Lincoln Avenue was founded in 1922 and, without blinking an eye, advertises as "the finest bakery in Chicago." After visiting the bakery/cafe, it is hard to argue. Four generations of Dinkels have been satisfying customers for more than 90 years....More
