Popular with musicians, artists, and other creatives, Logan Square has something for everyone, including charming boulevards, rich nightlife, and a plethora of historic buildings if you are a history enthusiast.
The culinary scene in Logan Square is just as rich and delightful. Known throughout the city, it gets stronger by the year, with a wide range of eating spots ready for you to enjoy.
When I visited Logan Square, I ate at several restaurants, and I’ll share the best of them here. Check out my list of the best Logan Square below!
2537 N Kedzie Blvd, Chicago, IL 60647
This bistro has a bohemian vibe that is always friendly and welcoming. Whether you’re looking for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, you’ll find something delicious at Lula Cafe. I visited Lula Cafe for brunch and ordered the Cardamom Swirl French Toast.

Visit Daisies and put yourself in the talented hands of Executive Chef and Proprietor, Joe Frillman, and Chef de Cuisine, Thomas Leonard. This popular eatery has a laid-back vibe and only the freshest local ingredients.
The menu here is seasonal, so there are frequent surprises on the menu. With plenty of pasta and vegetable dishes, this is a great spot for anyone who loves those ingredient categories.
I headed to Daisies for dinner and enjoyed the Tortellini, which includes Italian sausage, braised greens, and lentils. For dessert, I went with the Root Beer Float.
Daisies is also a popular lunch spot, with its exciting Between Bread sandwich menu. Wagyu Beef & Cheddar or Sweet Potato Panini, anyone?

Located on a corner of Logan Square’s many pedestrian-friendly streets, Longman & Eagle is inviting and easy to find. You can visit Longman & Eagle for brunch, lunch or dinner. If you eat lunch or dinner at this local spot, take a look at the bar menu, too.
Longman & Eagle describes itself as a refuge for urban explorers, a concept I find reminiscent of the historic pubs you find in Europe.
In line with this idea, Longman & Eagle also includes an inn. This includes six rooms that accommodate visitors. While casual, many tourists find Longman & Eagle’s inn to be a hidden treasure.
2051 N California Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you can’t go wrong with Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits. Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits focuses on dessert pies and biscuits.
Yum! Some of the pie selections on offer at Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits include Nutty Maple, Pretzel French Silk, Key Lime, and Goat Cheese & Fig Cheesecake. My recommendation? They all look delectable, but the Nutty Maple was my choice.
If you want something savory, order from among the selection of pot pies and grits. I tried the Chicken Pot Pie, and to say I highly recommend it is an understatement.
There is also a Southern Tomato pot pie on the menu, and I think I’ll have that next time. There are also grits available, including dishes such as Fancy Grits and Shrimp & Grits.
2451 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
The pizza I enjoyed at Paulie Gee’s Logan Square was some of the best I’ve ever tried. I can’t put my praise any more clearly than that. As Paulie Gee’s Logan Square prefers to use seasonal ingredients, you can expect the pizza menu to rotate quite frequently.
Wash down your pizza with beer from one of the several local breweries. Paulie Gee’s Logan Square has them on tap.
Some popular pizza selections at Paulie’s Gees include Gluten-Free, Vegan Sausage, Vegan, and Big Bad Wolf. What’s that one? The Big Bad Wolf features sweet Italian fennel sausage, Parmigiano Reggiano, and more. I highly recommend it.

I’ve heard locals rave about the Gnocchi and Cured Trout at Cellar Door Provisions. When it comes to dessert, check out the Canele. This is a pastry from the French tradition.

BiXi Beer is yet another famous Chicago brewery with exciting eating. While the beer is the main attraction, I thought the food was just as impressive. Most of the food menu is Asian-fusion-inspired, which suited me perfectly.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love egg rolls, and that menu item caught my attention right away.
BiXi beer’s egg rolls were as good as any I’ve ever tried. If a burger is on your mind, the Bao Burger is a great option.
Fried rice dishes are always a great bet, and I heard locals talk about the Spicy Fried Chicken Sando.
That’s why I ordered it during my visit. I can attest that it’s equal parts tasty and filling. It was the perfect accompaniment to a cold glass of beer.

When I craved a cocktail during my Logan Square stay, locals recommended Billy Sunday. This cocktail bar is not only popular but award-winning.
Billy Sunday truly brings creativity to cocktails, with a wide range of drink options to suit every palate and mood.
Just one example is the Spirit of the Forest, which includes Irish Pot Still Whiskey, Cinnamon and Oak Moss Bitters, Chilean Brandy, and Alpine Amaro.
If beer and wine are more up your alley, you’ll have plenty of options here. And while you enjoy your drinks, partake in the delicious bar snacks on offer here. I got a bit carried away with a mix Billy Sunday calls Puppy Chow.
It’s a crunchy delight with dark chocolate, peanut butter, and Chex cereal. Other options are Curried Nuts, House Marinated Olives, and House Pickled Vegetables.
