Lakeview sweet shop good for light lunches and sinful desserts.
The delectable sweets of Judy Contino, former Ambria pastry chef and Lettuce Entertain You corporate pastry chef, are the attraction at this Lakeview bakery. Each day theres a light lunch menu—a soup, a couple sandwiches, salads, and quiche. Dessert might be a rich butter-crusted apple bistro tart, but the absolute winner when it comes to pastry is the brioche, its buttery egg dough by far the best in town. Ice cream, made in-house year-round, is also outstanding: "In my gastrocosmology," former Reader critic Nicholas Day has written of the chocolate, "this is the ice cream that immediately precedes the rapture."
