My good friend Bonnie has been raving about Angel Food Bakery for awhile now so in the name of research I had to check it out.
This Ravenswood sweet spot is cute and cheery--with an array of vintage Easy Bake toys lining the walls of this unpretentious corner shop. Many of the menu offerings are retro-inspired, including the Air Stream, the bakery's version of a Twinkie.
I must confess Angel Food was one of three bakery stops I made the day I visited. That's why I only purchased one item, the Mud Pie. All I can tell you is wow! Wow! Wow! This flourless chocolate cake masquerading as a muffin really packs a rich, velvety semi-sweet chocolate punch--just the way I like it. I deliberately nibbled on it ultra slowly because I wanted the divine taste to linger as long as possible.
By the way, you can sit inside Angel Food, where you can savor your treats. There's a small fenced-in dining area, too. But sadly, that will have to wait awhile.
