No Margerine Allowed on Premises

Traveling along W. Division Street in Chicago, IL there’s a strip of popular eating and drinking establishments that provide a wide range of cuisine. As you approach the western end of the strip one of the last places you will encounter is Letizia’s Natural Bakery. Entering the shop you cannot help but notice the familiar red circle with a diagonal slash across it with the word “margarine” in the middle. Yes this is a baker that takes pride in the fact that they use only natural sweet butter in all of their goods. Now I’m not exactly a butter person, but I can say that it must make a difference in that this place always has people coming and going. What I do appreciate is the distinct flavors you experience from anything you get. This day I decided on a couple of muffins. Initially there was the visual appeal, but as I leaned in a little closer the strong spice coming from the pumpkin-spice muffin closed the deal. Right beside the pumpkin-spice muffin was another favorite; carrot cake. I cannot guarantee that they’ll have either of these flavors when you visit, but if you find your way to Letizia’s I try whatever you find that suits you. You won’t go wrong with anything they have on display.
