Hot chocolate isn’t the only thing that Mindy’s has going for it, although the hot chocolate is epic. Mexican chocolate with spicy cinnamon, French chocolate made with 72% cacao, Belgian chocolate mixed with mint, chai and chocolate… There are bacon chocolate cookies and brioche donuts with fudge sauce and coffee cocoa nib ice cream. If you can add chocolate to it, Mindy Segal does it and after 6 nominations for James Beard Awards and a small hiatus where HotChocolate was closed, Mindy Segal reopened her restaurant in 2012, changed up the menu and won the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef 2013. Mindy’s serves a full menu for brunch, lunch and dinner surrounded by the fantastic shopping, boutiques and live music that make up Wicker Park. A Chicago day doesn’t get better than Wicker Park and Mindy’s is a must stop, must eat, must drink location right in the middle.
