Grab yourself a thick slice of cinnamon chip bread from Great Harvest Bread Co.
across the street, spread your blanket out in the lush green grass and open your book to where you left off the last time you had a moment to yourself. This peaceful park hosts festivals and farmers markets from time to time, but for the most part it caters to a small crowd looking to relax. Your stereotypical idyllic park view actually comes to life here, with a mom or two watching their little ones play as a lone Evanstonian sits on a bench watching the birds peck at breadcrumbs. The lack of joggers and pets add to the stillness.
