Our Review

As part of the Blue Sky Inn, a nonprofit that helps disadvantaged Chicago youth gain work experience, Blue Sky Bakery puts teenagers that may be homeless or at-risk through a 12-week job program, helping them acquire skills such as cash handling and bread baking. The new storefront location on Lincoln (moved from Albany Avenue) is quirkily decorated, with a pale blue vintage bike hanging from one wall and kitschy chandeliers suspended from the ceiling. Among the baked goods are awesome savory white-cheddar-and-chive scones; sweet, sugary peanut butter and oatmeal cookies; and a dense, doughy tomato-and-cheese quiche. Sandwiches include thick crimson coins of beets with soft goat cheese and red onion served on hot, fresh ciabatta and a less-impressive ham and cheese on a pretzel roll.
