3 words: goat cheese appetizer.
You can?t have a good pizza without a good crust, and if you want good crust, heading to a bakery is a no-brainer. Expect options on crust at this spot along with funky and various toppings
The coffee here is really good, but the French toast was a little bland for my taste. If you come for breakfast definitely get something from the bakery. You won't be disappointed.
I always recommend the Med(s) to those visiting Hyde Park. Café au lait, pastries, fruit pies and tarts, etc. Their OJ was always warm and sunny during my AM... in religion.
A favorite of students, faculty, and staff of the University of Chicago Law School, including former professors Barack Obama and Elena Kagan.
No suggestions are needed because everything is delicious. Their crossiants and cinnamon rolls are so good that I get one after I leave the gym.
Tried and true, the croissants at the Medici on 57th are well worth the walk from campus as they're super buttery and dense.

wonderful brunch on weekends...my son LOVES the squeeze-your-own-oj...bacon blue cheese burger to die for!
For those looking for an actual bakery (vs. Pastries shop) medici has amazing cranberry and walnut bread!
