Toy / Game Store
“Local independent toy store with an incredible selection of curated toys and kids books for all ages. Pro tip for any younger kids you're shopping for -- pick up a Blue Line train car compatible with the Thomas wooden tracks :)”
“In the Neighborhood $: In the mood for Starbucks coffee or tea, as well as a nice walk through Logan Square. Just walk north on Humboldt Boulevard and you will discover Palmer Square on your left. Continue walking north until you reach Logan Boulevard walk east on Logan till California and you have arrived. Order, grab a newspaper or book and enjoy. Seating both inside and outside.”
“You can stop here for coffee and bagels etc in the am but this place is known for wood-fired pizza, just down the block from Longman. We eat it almost once a week like clockwork... ”
