PIXLEY AND EHLERS, 22 South Clark Street
Tantalizing cherry pies and pastries of all sorts — observe them being prepared before your eyes in the window of Pixley and Ehlers. Note the pastry cooks, the flour and the bulbous piles of dough and the ovens in the background. This is the home of the American pie — juicy, flaky, and using all the conventional fruits. They also feature an "Old Fashioned Farm Breakfast Special," consisting of wheatcakes (whole wheat or buckwheat, as you please) with Mickelberry's sausages, and plenty of syrup and a cup of coflfee. The whole comes to 20 cents. Pork and beans, sandwiches, and ham and eggs are also served here.
