For when I travel outside of chicago & d-town
When you want to hit all your food groups in one bite…
Primanti Bros - the Burgh
This is a Pittsburgh staple. If you want what’s best for you, get the steak & cheese with egg and don’t forget the IC lite. Throw in a yinz or two into your lingo and you’ll fit right in.
When you want to be hit in the face with sugary sweetness…
Jaarsma Bakery - Pella
If this small Dutch town knows anything, it is their baked goods. Cherry donut holes & pillow puffs are game changing, but you can’t leave without trying a dutch letter.
When you want to post up for hours
Dash Coffee Roasters - Cedar Rapids
A local coffee shop with low-key hipster vibes with anything but low quality good. They have monthly rotating small bites & featured drinks including a latte with a toasted marshmallow
