8 Places to Feast in Edgewater

Waterfront views, diverse cuisine… what’s not to love? Head up to Edgewater for these offerings, not to mention that comforting neighborhood feeling, antique markets, and have we mentioned the FOOD? Go on, call your Lyft. We can wait.

The Waterfront Cafe
Order a Revolution Anti-Hero and the Lobster Roll, then grab a table closer to the seemingly endless blue. This place isn’t a white tablecloth sort of joint, but more of the spot for you to take it easy and stare out into the water while enjoying delightful food and beverages. 6219 North Sheridan Rd
