Excellent basic Bakery - Suggestions Needed!

v$ | Jan 10, 2003 12:24 PM

I've lived in Chicago for about 7 years now and have never found a bakery that is outstanding. You know, the kind of place where you can get a birthday cake that is moist and fluffy with phenomenal buttercream/whipped cream frosting. Or great cookies, if you're in the mood. Everywhere I've tried--Dinkel's, Schmeissing's (?)--has been mediocre at best. I live in Edgewater, but the bakery does not need to be that far north. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
