Good, old-fashioned pastries. Nothing gluten free, unfortunately, but really good otherwise. It was a kolache kind of day.

The new gal is great for a new or experienced gal. (Well she has been coming in since she was a child). Reminds me to eat my croissant...

Have been going to Lutz Cafe for many years to sit out in the patio and have lunch or an early dinner with girlfriends. This time we only stopped for pastries but the service and tasty pastries haven't changed with time

What You'll Get

A talented pastry chef can whisk ingredients together quickly enough to bend time and space, creating a black hole capable of sucking down pies, cakes, and British children eating pies filled with cake. Taste the sweetness of an "event horizon" with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sweets, café cuisine, and more at Lutz Café & Pastry Shop.

Founded by Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lutz in 1948, Lutz Café was the first German pastry shop, or konditorei, in Chicago. Using all-natural ingredients and traditional European recipes, Lutz serves strudels, cookies, candies, and cakes, including the New Yorker–approved chocolate-covered Baumkuchen cake, which is baked in successive layers over several hours, showing faint rings that determine its age ($32.95). Classic sugar-glazed cheese coffee cakes ($10.95) pamper tongues, and rich belgian and swiss truffles ($19 for a half-pound assorted box) melt in the mouth like chocolate ice cubes.

Lutz's café menu also offers comforting and hearty lunch options. Lightly butter taste buds with individual-size flaky ham-and-cheddar-filled quiches ($7.95), or try the mouth-melting spinach crêpes finished with hollandaise sauce ($8.95). Homemade, creamy tomato bisque ($3.95) stands confidently on its own or battles loneliness with the addition of a half sandwich for an extra $5. If sitting and sipping, relax with an individual european pot of coffee served viennese-style with whipped cream ($3.75) in a quaint indoor café and pastry shop or the outdoor garden café.

About Lutz Café & Pastry Shop

Since opening as the first konditorei, or German pastry shop, in the city of Chicago in 1948, Lutz Café & Pastry Shop has collected praise from the New Yorker, the Food Network, and generations of sweets-savvy mouths. Beneath the curve of a wood-and-glass display case, strudels, cakes, and candies crafted from traditional European recipes preen in the light of pendant lamps. Pristine tablecloths and delicate china crown tables in the flower-filled dining room and private, outdoor garden (open Mother’s Day through October), where a blue reflecting pool mirrors yellow deck umbrellas. Individual pots of Viennese-style coffee energize guests for flurries of typing over the complimentary WiFi network or climbing expeditions to the peak of a towering chocolate-covered Baumkuchen cake.
