A visit to the historic Pittsfield Building, built in 1927, and its first floor deli and cafe by the same name may surprise you with its elaborate five-story atrium and Spanish Gothic Revival details. While you may not expect to find a simple sandwich in typical diner fashion, you'll stumble upon exactly that once you pass through the rich marble and bronze accents in the building's main entrance and atrium. Home to many offices, residences and shops (jewelers, of course), the Pittsfield Building is much grander in scale and decor than its small, simple cafe.
Not the cheap diner you may know and love far from the Loop, here you'll spend between $8 and $10 for a sandwich with (amazing) seasoned fries. For those always in search of the perfect omelet to make the rest of the day seem a little less bleak, Pittsfield's is well worth a stop.
Average cost: <$10
