Ruggles Café Bakery (2365 Rice Boulevard) has been a staple of dessert fans for quite a while. We love to hit Ruggles in Rice Village for our traditional white chocolate bread pudding. The melted white chocolate, vanilla bean ice cream and raspberry reduction sauce make this stand out as a special treat, and since it's large, it's perfect for sharing with a group of friends.
At less than ten bucks, most of the desserts here at the bakery make for an affordable luxury. But we want to know if there are any other places inside the Loop where you can get make nice desserts on the weekends. What is your favorite bakery and why?
