Magnolia Bakery to open in Chicago Saturday, October 1st

The famed Magnolia Bakery, which recently opened up in Bloomingdale's in New York City's Upper East Side, will open in Chicago on October 1st. From Eater Chicago:

New York's iconic Magnolia Bakery will finally make its Chicago debut at Block 37 this Saturday, Oct. 1. The look of the location is very vintage and reminds you of a seaside bakery from the '50s. This is the first Magnolia store in the Midwest, coming after openings in LA and Dubai.

The 28-seat location will offer cakes, pies, creamy banana pudding, cookies, brownies, mini cheesecakes and fresh-from-the-oven breakfast muffins. From Double Crust Pies ($24) and Strawberry Icebox Cake ($24) to Red Velvet Cake ($55, 3-layer) and S’mores Cupcakes ($3.25 each), Magnolia harkens back to the flavors and traditions of classic American baked goods.

In other Magnolia Bakery news, via their Facebook page, they are selling a Rosh Hashanah honey cupcake: "spiced honey cake with walnuts and a touch of citrus zest."
