coffee cake

will be back in town for thanksgiving, and have been craving a coffee cake like they used to make at the old main street bakery in evanston. yeasty, moist, with layers of baked in crumblies and nuts, maybe even some gooey topping.

where is my best bet for finding such a thing?

  1. I never visited the old main street bakery so I can't relate to that specific product but Tag's Bakery in Evanston came to mind immediately. They have all those real bakery items. I remember a very gooey nutty coffee cake that I couldn't resist.
