Smack Dab Bakery
Where we've featured it
Smack Dab started out underneath the Morse Red Line stop, then had a brief stint as a pop-up in Glenview, and it might have been at the Des Plaines Oasis at some point. OK, that last one is a lie. But the important thing is that now it has a permanent location in Rogers Park, complete with a patio on which to eat their delicious biscuit sandwiches, donuts, and breakfast specials. Plus, it’s very casual, so you don’t even need to put on real clothes to come here in the morning.
It’s a beautiful thing when a brunch place serving delicious sandwiches, quiche, and pastries is also casual enough that you barely have to worry about putting on real clothes to head over in the morning. Head here if that’s a pitch that speaks to you.
