Waterfront Café (Edgewater)
Cafe, American, Vegetarian, $$$
Open only in summer, the Waterfront Café is a hidden lakefront-dining gem nestled in beautiful Berger Park. Spend just a few minutes seated under their patio lights with the lake breeze on your face and you’ll feel transported to the casual beach vacation you’ve been dreaming about. Forget that you’re still in Edgewater as you choose from their extensive beer, wine and cocktail list. The menu has a wide range of classic American and British fare such as fish and chips, or a chicken avocado wrap named after the 48th ward of Chicago that houses this cozy cafe. Enjoy live music five nights per week and keep an eye out for their ticketed, themed dinner events.
