Although it is hardly known outside of Hyde Park, people who are familiar with the place will frequently assert that Cafe Florian has the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. This is, of course, a controversial claim, especially since the pizza is not as deep as more traditional Chicago pizzas. The Florian Spinach on white crust is delicious, and inexpensive when compared to other deep dish pizza. Florian also offers a wide array of other options, including sandwiches, soups, salads, and most other things you’d expect to find at a diner. The coffee is terrible, but bottomless. The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting, and this can be a good place to read or write in the afternoon when it isn’t crowded.
