Dining with a side of history

The North & Clark Cafe has been a local gathering spot for both visitors of the Chicago History Museum and neighborhood patrons alike. We pride ourselves on our fresh-made menu offerings and unique daily specials. We’re serving up Chicago-style hot dogs, all-day breakfast, and some of the best burgers in the Windy City! Whether it’s a coffee from Chicago’s own Intelligentsia, a craft beer or wine, check us out in the café or on the patio at the corner of North & Clark!
