Peach cobbler and cinnamon roll in Chicago

We were only in Chicago for a few days this past weekend, but of course, we were sure to sample a few desserts.

The ice cream we had was sub-par, so I'm not bothering to look up the name of the place where we got it.

The peach cobbler at Dixie Kitchen & Bait Shop in Hyde Park, on the other hand, was pretty good. It had a little too much nutmeg for my taste, but the hefty serving of whipped cream served on the side made up for it.

I also sampled a cinnamon roll from Medici on 57th. I usually prefer cinnamon rolls with icing, but this lightly glazed, icing-free roll was a treat. Lots of cinnamon, nice buttery flavor, and just the right balance of flaky and chewy. Yum.

Max -
Medici's is "vaguely reminiscent" - you have to try it!
