Help. Chicago breakfast and afternoon snack delivery

RiReg Oct 26, 2007 08:43 AM

I'm from Boston and will be "feeding meetings" next Tuesday in Chicago. I've been asked to provide 2 breakfasts and 2 afternoon snacks for meetings that day. I want to find some great places to order breakfast pastry/bagels/muffins for the morning and snacks for the afternoon (thinking of getting Tacos for the afternoon snacks in honor of Jacoby Ellsbury's base steal last night).

So, any suggestions? Breakfast at 200 East Randolph, one snack is at 101 East Erie and one is at the Merchandise Mart.

Any help greatly appreciated.

    I always like Corner Bakery

    Though they do not have tacos :)

        Mother Hubbard's is a bar - I doubt they deliver. I've had apps there, but I don't really remember them - so probably not great, but not bad.

        I would use a company like mother hubbard's to have your office delivered Portillo's or big bowl or Jerry's Sandwich's. My office uses them weekly and they are fast and cheap, great service.

          Flourish Bakery delivers pretty much anywhere, though I'm not sure what they charge for downtown. They do all sorts of breakfast stuff - I love the croissants. Flourishbakerycafe.com

          I've heard good things about Specialty's as far as breakfast/lunch options, not sure how they would do for snacks. Never tried them myself. Specialtysdirect.com

          Potbelly does good breakfast sandwiches, as well as bagels/muffin tops/coffee. I used to work there, and would frequently indulge in the breakfast sandwiches, though the bagels are a healthier option. I don't think they have anything good for snacks. Potbelly.com

            OOPS, I realized the OP was 4 months ago.

            A great local option is Sopraffina Cafe. Always a good choice.

              I read in Time Out magazine about an organization of students who cook breakfast/lunch snacks- tried it and the cookies etc were very good. They deliver to your door for $5-they have a website www.blueskyinn.org-need a day notice but thought why not help them out while I am stuffing my face with goodies.Enjoy
