Treat yourself to something sweet from these Chicago dessert locations!
Saturday, Oct. 14 is National Dessert Day! Sample homemade pies, fluffy donuts and rich hot chocolate as you explore Chicago’s dessert destinations. Satisfy your sweet tooth at any of these locations!
Dessert is a specialty at Mindy’s Hot Chocolate! The restaurant and dessert bar rotates their menu seasonally to feature fresh fruits, nuts and chocolate. For fall, try their apple strudel with Seedling Farm cider or their homemade doughnuts with caramel corn and hot fudge glaze. Pair dessert with a steaming cup of hot chocolate, made with real melted chocolate and topped with plump homemade marshmallows. Only an 8 minute walk from 215 West Apartments.
Grab a tin of savory popcorn from Chicago’s Garrett’s Popcorn! Garrett’s first opened its doors at 10 West Madison in 1949, using copper kettles to hot air pop their kernels. They continue to use the same process today, including flavors like favorited caramel corn and cheddar cheese, along with original butter and nut-mixed caramel corn. The East Madison location is only an 8 minute walk from 73 East Lake!
Grab a scoop of creamy, artisan gelato at Amorino Chicago in River North. Churned fresh daily, their gelato beckons patrons back to their hometown of Paris with beautiful rose scoops. Try their current red berries cheesecake flavor or stick with original rich chocolate. Located across the street from State & Chestnut!
Have dessert for breakfast with a donut from Do-Rite Donuts & Coffee! Try their cinnamon old fashioned, blueberry crumb or Michigan apple fritter flavors. Their menu also changes daily by chef’s preference, so stop by for the day’s original creation! Located across the street from Marquee at Block 37, or only a 6 minute walk from 215 West Apartments.
