With a name like Goddess and The Baker, you can expect incredible food and so we decided to try this place for breakfast and then went back later on for a treat in the afternoon. The place is not that big and seems to be quite popular to the point that it can be challenging to get a table, especially if the tables outside are not an option because of the rain (and it rained a lot as we were visiting the Windy City).
Breakfast was quite good, Jodi having a tea and me, a double espresso, accompanied by a delicious coffee cake that had a nice crumbled top with a nice amount of cinnamon. The almond croissant though was just ok, the almond paste not being as good as what I am used too, more like a paste than frangipane. We went back for a treat and tried their chocolate chip cookie that was slightly warm and had lots of chocolate, as well as the brownie that was just ok for me.
Goddess and The Baker is a nice place, with lots of things to try. I like the relaxed vibe and would probably go back to try other sweets.
Enjoy (I did)!
