The Best Brownies in Chicago

The chocolate brownie was invented in Chicago during the time of the World’s Columbian Exposition by Bertha Palmer in 1893, and has since become a sweet staple of gooey goodness. You can still get the original if you stay at the Palmer House Hotel, but over a hundred years of perfecting has led us to these MostBest top three spots for getting an international favorite that started right here.

Dinkel’s Bakery

Head over to this Lakeview favorite right off the Paulina – Brown Line stop and experience some of the best brownies in town.

La Estrella
