Ukrainian @ Shokolad

From the cafe's website:

"Conveniently located in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood of Chicago, Shokolad features fine European pastries and desserts, custom designed wedding and special occasion cakes."

This is what Zagat surveyors have to say:

"Named after the Ukrainian word for chocolate, this simple, tiled Humboldt Park bakery/cafe holds the answer to many a sugar craving in its case filled with cakes, tortes and delicate cookies – though the Eastern European savories (e.g. pierogi, crêpes) are hard to ignore too; it also offers eggy AM eats that may stray from its Slavic roots, but the brunch crowd pays that no mind."

SIGNATURE DISHES:
Varenyky (Ukrainian-Style Stuffed Dumplings)
Ukrainian-Style Sweet Cheese Crepes
Ukrainian Borshch Soup (beet)

The restaurant is BYOB with no corkage fee. This will be a private event after the bakery closes. The cost will be $25 + tax and gratuities per person. Please bring cash.

    I am sorry that I was not here tonight. Did not have the chance to tell you sooner. Something out of my control. Hope to get together in the future with this group.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make dinner today. This cafe is just a few blocks from me, and I might be able to stop by later for dessert :)

    We have so much space left ... If you have a friend that you always wanted to introduce to Ukrainian food and never came around to it, NOW is the time to bring them along. ;) Do invite, don't take "No" for an answer, and drag them at all costs :)

    Have I mentioned, don't forget BYOB!! :)
