There's nothing like reading a great book while sipping a hot cup of Joe on a cold, rainy autumn day. Recently, we've had several opportunities to do just that, but honestly, the atmosphere and coffee at national chains don't cut it. Enter Delanie's in South Side, a late-summer entry that's already created quite a buzz. The modest shop offers the expected house and specialty blends along with teas and (tasty) espresso, but in addition, patrons can grab salads, sandwiches, breakfast fare and homemade pastries on the go. Who knows—the cozy shop might just be your new favorite South Side stop, surprising for a neighborhood dominated by nightlife spots.
