Decadent treats don’t need a specific season or reason. We kept that in mind as we tore through the menu at Humboldt Park’s terrific Spinning J Bakery& Soda Fountain.
My key lime hibiscus pie (with raspberry coulis) featured a buttery graham cracker crust I would’ve happily eaten by the bucketful, while my husband’s chocolate egg cream with a scoop of strawberry balsamic gelato easily held its own.
We let the kids come, too, and they more than dug their respective scoops of vanilla bean, blackberry& key lime, and vegan cherry peach.
Owner Dinah Grossman has done an exceptional job, both with the beautifully appointed throwback decor as well as the rotating selection of seasonal ingredients and fresh ideas.
