Oak Mill BakeryBucktown
This Bucktown spot is part of a local chain of European bakeries (there are five other locations around the city and suburbs). Look for European-style (i.e. lots of cream fillings) cakes, cookies and pastries—the pear cake is not to be missed. Pre-made cakes are available, but special orders are welcome. A few tables are available if you'd like to hang out and sip a cuppa joe with your cookie or pastry purchase.
