Mindy’s Bakery in Wicker Park comes from the team behind the now-closed Mindy’s Hot Chocolate, which was known for (you guessed it) hot chocolate. And while they still serve their delicious rich, chocolatey drink, this bakery also has great baked goods and mac and cheese. The menu rotates, but standouts include a cheesy sweet potato quiche, a mortadella and giardiniera turnover, and a honey, brie, and apricot jam danish. Though there are a couple of window seats, this is definitely more of a take-out operation, so be ready to catch some crumbs in the car.
