Amber Pie

Street Address: 
118 East Superior Street
Chicago, IL

Culled from: Drury, John. Dining in Chicago, New York: The John Day Company, 1931, p. 193.

Note: The Newberry Library holds the personal papers of author John Drury.

One of the first of the tea shops on the near north side. The little old frame house it occupies is a familiar sight to strollers along Upper Michigan Avenue. The food is carefully prepared, wholesome, and varied. The Misses Helm, who established this place over ten years ago, are known all over town for their delicious amber pie, a specialty of the house. There are always interesting people here at dinner. Table d'hote luncheons are 60 cents and similar dinners are $1.00. Also a la carte. Plenty of room, both upstairs and downstairs. Delaware 3719.
