Chicago Cupcake will celebrate their grand opening on Sunday by giving away cupcakes with additional purchases. The Wicker Park storefront is the culmination of years of hustling inside Chicago Cupcake's two food trucks.
The menu (see below) features a special Liege waffle, which owner Brendan Bolger describes as "a richer, denser, sweeter waffle native to the Wallonia region of Eastern Belgium." A station includes a toppings bar so customers can customize their treats. There's also a rotating selection of those dense, cheesecase-like cupcakes and cinnamon rolls to give guests their sugary fix.
There's tables with about 30 seats inside for diners to indulge on the spot. But folks can also grab a baked good and coffee and run. Face it, Wicker Park just got sweeter.
Chicago Cupcake, 1415 N. Milwaukee Ave., (312) 300-4797, open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday; 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday-Friday; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Closed on Monday for now.
