KNICKERBOCKER COFFEE SHOP, 163 East Walton Place
Excellent substantial dishes, the kind that business men enjoy, are offered in this small eating room just off the lobby of the Hotel Knickerbocker. There is German apple pancakes with head lettuce, broiled Spanish mackerel and boiled potato, Szedigner beef goulash, and any number of other items. This coffee shop, decorated with unique pinkish wallpaper, is popular among advertising men and executives from the towering Palmolive Building next door, as well as among society people. Luncheons are 65 cents — and worth it.
