Edge of Bucktown lunch and dessert spot stocks hard-to-resist cakes, tarts and pies.. In Short Housed in a corner retail space, this spacious cafe has fresh, uncluttered feel. A brightly lit display case greets customers with decadent treats, from colorful fruit tarts to dramatic chocolate and vanilla cakes. Seating is split between two-tops and lounge chairs with upholstered ottomans and darkly-stained wooden coffee tables. Locals stop in for panini and salads during the day, but evenings are all about the dessert--even drawing people from nearby restaurants on Damen.
