Fodor's Review

Just north of Uptown there's a neighborhood that feels like a small town and still shows signs of the Swedish settlers who founded it. Andersonville has some great restaurants and bakeries, many of which pay tribute to its Scandinavian roots. In winter months, be sure to drop by Simon's Tavern, at 5210 North Clark, for a glass of glögg (mulled wine)—it's a traditional favorite. Helping anchor the area is the Women & Children First bookstore, at 5233 North Clark, which stocks an extensive selection of feminist tomes and children's lit.
