Homey spot featuring locally grown and sustainable ingredients.

Our Review

Inside this Humboldt Park cafe is a cozy jumble of mismatched wood furniture and tchotchkes, with bird stencils on the wall and a candy dish on an end table. The menu's simple both in scope and execution: brunch, salads, sandwiches, snacks. It's good, solid food, sourced from local and regional farmers. Fried pickles were crispy, deviled eggs with bacon a bit bland but not bad, and fried chicken respectable enough—the sides of crispy kale and garlic-cheddar mashed potatoes were even better, though. The only disappointment was an oversweet pulled pork sandwich, and that was all but forgotten when complimentary cheesecake—which was quite good—arrived for dessert. It's cash only, but I think the extremely reasonable prices, not to mention the fact that it's BYO, more than makes up for any inconvenience. Intriguingly, Grandma J's now hosts the occasional burlesque night.
