Dinkel's Bakery - Chicago, IL
Founded in 1922, Dinkel's Bakery in Chicago (3329 Lincoln Ave.) is one of the last old-school German bakeries in the city and, as luck would have it, was located just down the block from where we were meeting some friends for dinner. Their most famous product is their stollen; however, Dinkel's donuts also periodically appear on local and national best-of lists, so we popped in to pick up a frosted maple cake donut to share for breakfast the next day. The thick frosting was a little on the indulgent side for 8 am, but was a fine accompaniment to Oatmeal Squares, nonetheless.
