Spinning J Bakery and Soda Fountain
Retro-chic pie shop and soda fountain
Cafe · Humboldt Park · $
This quaint Humboldt Park sweet stop puts out seasonal pies, gelato and coffee along with clever riffs on soda-fountain classics featuring housemade syrups. The earth-toned setting resembles a chic tavern (albeit one that's BYOB) more than a pie shop, with vintage furnishings such as a marble counter, barstools and a brass foot rail lending atmosphere.

The most adorable! I always get the tuna melt, never disappointed. The breakfast sandwich is also amazing, on that fresh baked-in-house English muffin. Milkshakes & malts are like the best in the city. I take all my out of town visitors here

I am a big fan of Spinning J's. It's the perfect local little Soda Shop to have on the corner! Their pastries are unreal. Menu is good, and they have a lot of specials based on what's in season, but the menu isn't terribly deep. If you're trying to avoid x, y, or z this coming January you might have better luck somewhere else. Still I do love their menu, but I wouldn't mind a salad option on there if I'm not wanting bread (I fully recognize that makes me a bit high maintenance and pretentious, I just feel like you guys would make some amazing non basic salads based on your daily quiche and starta offerings!!) Staff is above and beyond friendly, the quintessential neighborhood feel. It's a small kitchen so don't pop in if you're in a rush, a hot sandwich order typically takes about 15 to 20 min to come up. But if you're looking for a leisurely time and some great coffee or fancy soda's, BOMB PASTRIES, in a very warm and welcoming environment, you have to go to Spinning J's!

From the pies, to the milkshakes, to the cinnamon rolls, to the egg sandwich, to the cola's.....SPINNING J DOES EVERYTHING RIGHT! You can not go wrong with anything of your choosing. Enjoy... It's an amazing place with a throw-back vibe!
