There’s nothing quite like walking down an alley and emerging with a brown paper bag full of… pasteries. Interurban is a new walk-up window in an alley in Lincoln Park, just off Halsted and Armitage (hit me up if you need directions!). I heard about it a few weeks ago from UrbanDaddy, and the real draw for me was the bacon-maple morning buns.
But in the end, that’s not what will bring me back. The morning buns had a good flavor but was dry. (The cinnamon rolls at Sensational Bites still reign!) The strawberry pop tart was great, as was the mozzarella, tomato and bacon tartlet. While I was a bit underwhelmed, a friend went and got a salad, focaccia bread and few other items and loved them all, so perhaps it’s worth a return visit sometime.
