How I have lived in Chicago for over a year now and haven’t tried this place until last weekend is beyond me. Do you ever see something or walk into a place and just go, “WOW.” Because that’s how I felt when I stepped foot into Goddess and the Baker. I was amazed and completely taken aback. There was this amazing light up neon sign on one wall, a wall of windows on the next, and then a whole section of just pastry after pastry all lined up nicely in the case. The aesthetics were everything so it already had at least a 7/10 in my book. Now all that was left to try was the actual food and coffee. I had pretty high expectations from all of the reviews I had read prior to going. I was hastily looking up the menu on the train ride there trying to figure out my order ahead of time. Breakfast sandwiches, a burrito, oatmeal, açai bowls, parfaits, omelettes, avocado toast, you name it they had it. I opted for the “morning sandwich” and boy was I not let down. I was blown away with how good this sandwich was. I accompanied my breakfast with a vanilla latte and man was it a glorious combination. This brought my overall score up to a solid 10/10 would recommend.
Of course we had a photoshoot while we were there because pictures are memories and memories are everything.
So if you are in the Chicago area please please please check this place out, you will not be disappointed! And if you are, well blame me. BUT you won’t be, I promise.
