Bites Nearby: Eat Your Heart Out at Maier's Bakery

This week's bite is an old-time favorite for Morton Grove's sweet tooth.

Hungering for a new fabulous food experience? Rather than perusing the Web or taking tips from friends, we've got a better idea.

Each week, Morton Grove Patch editors and readers will pick a great restaurant either in town or nearby whose cuisine is considered to reign supreme.

Here's this week's choice: 

Greatest Dish Ever: This family-owned bakery has been serving up a colorful palette of coffee cakes, sweet rolls, doughnuts, bread and other desserts since 1954. But it's their "double-chocolate chip coffee cake" that is the bakery's claim to fame. 
Don't Miss: This week, the pastry artisans are crafting Valentine cupcakes, cookies and heart-shaped petit fours. 
The Vibe: Homemade and heartfelt
Cool Factor: With an emphasis on old-fashioned and homegrown tastiness, this bakery is a nod to Morton Grove's roots and a keepsake in the history book. You cannot buy freshly baked bread just anywhere these days, and the Maier's bakers put their hearts into it. 

Found a great place to dine? Let us know about it in the comments.

Maier's prepared all of the deserts for the Chambers VIP and Installation dinner and everything was absolutely amazing! Frank Silvio is such a generous person and gives so much to our community, but mostly his food is super yummy!
