Chicagoans generally don’t line up for things like people in other cities. That's not the case at Sugar Moon. The line for this Friday-to-Sunday Logan Square bakery starts forming well before they open at 9am, and by 8:50, there will be no less than 30 people happily waiting, rain or shine. But it’s worth spending a precious weekend morning standing on a sidewalk to get one (or hopefully, many) of the curried cauliflower croissants, nutella-pear brioche buns, or crunchy and not-too-sweet espresso cornflake cookies. Somehow, every crumb in the craggy jalapeno-cheddar-corn scone crumbles just right, and every pastry has layers flakier than a Spirit Airlines schedule. There’s no seating in the shop, so be prepared to eat straight out of the box on the sidewalk—which is fine because there’s a 0% chance you’ll wait until you get home.
