        Well, I wouldn't consider it a "destination" - so I wouldn't change any plans just to go there - but if you happen to be in the Loop anyway, you could easily stop by, then leave if and when you're not overwhelmed (don't get your hopes up). After all, within a few blocks you have some other worthy food stops, like Intelligentsia Coffee, Toni Patisserie, Do-Rite Donuts, and Garrett Popcorn, and the French Market is only a bit further, so all will not be lost.
