Belmont Snack Shop

Classic Breakfast

While Avondale is abound in authentic, ethnic restaurants- sometimes you just want that good old Chicago experience.  That is when I turn to the Belmont Snack Shop.photo copy

Avondale’s only 24hr restaurant has been at 3407 W. Belmont for over 50 years (at least I think, since our server Linda had been going there since ’67), before the Belmont Blue Line was in and the clock tower, now Best Buy at was still standing.  The food still stands the test of time; classic eggs & hash browns for anytime, burgers, chilli and glass pedestals of homemade peach pie or carrot cake (and more!) lined up on the counter are all made fresh and right in front of you as you sit on one of the dozen or so Hopper-esque stools.  Whether you are there for a good cup of bottomless coffee or a full meal, the price & quality are hard to beat.   Linda at Belmont Snack Shop

The food is still served with care as well- be sure to say hi to Linda (in the photo) or Paul who are often your tireless servers and can tell you a thing or two about “the good ol’ days” of the neighborhood and cut you a tasty slice of pie.

One thought on “Belmont Snack Shop

  1. Hello; I would like to invite you to the graduation day for the Chicago Public School’s All Star after-school program. They have been taking classes in how to play the “accordion”. Today, Monday, April 15, 2013 is their graduation day where they perform for their family and friends what they have learned in the past few weeks. This is at Lorca Elementary School at 3231 N. Springfield, Chicago, 60618. From 3:30 to 4:10p.m. today.

    I am a business owner of Alywind Accordions & Amplifiers 3219 N. Elston Ave.,Chicago. I am also a substitute teacher in the Chicago Public Schools. When they added on more hours and wanted to include more classes in “The Arts”. I was approached to possibly offer free accordion music classes to students in the Chicago Public Schools.

    Yes, I am one of the unusual stores in the Avondale community… including belly dancing store, flamenco dancing store, veggie restaurants, and the infamous Hot Doug’s.

    Please come to my students accordion graduation today.

    Sincerely, Bea Zimmerman 773-588-7954
