Pizza slice-sized brownies!
This is a gem in Lincoln Square! Situated on the corner of Lincoln & Leland, the cafe offers large portion pizza slice-sized brownies in 2 varieties: regular with walnuts & double chocolate (see pics!). I love the nostalgic theme of the place. Their cupcake display has a garage/steampunk theme; very artistic and original!
The cupcakes are a little larger than Magnolia Bakery's and cost slightly less (~$3.65 ea). I bought the raspberry (flavor of the day; vanilla cupcake with jam in the center & raspberry frosting), Nutella (chocolate cake w/ Nutella center), strawberry lemonade (vanilla cake w/ tangy strawberry frosting), & carrot cupcake (standard). Their menu offers a wide array of flavors like Maple & bacon, peanut butter, red velvet, Oreo cookie, & more. They offer a discount if you purchase 6 or more. The 4 cupcakes & 4 brownies cost $29. They also offer danishes, croissants and coffee.
There's a seating area to meet up with friends with a little more separation space than the Grind located down the street. There is no outdoor seating. I will definitely visit again when I'm back in town to try more flavors. I've already been there twice!
