Your cafe need a heap of scrumptious goodies? Have a cute little grocery store that features local items? We know what it’s like to have both – and are always ready to work with you on carrying the ‘just right’ baked-good to fit your space.
In our grocery, we always start our search locally. There has been a groundswell of artisan food-stuffs being created in the windy city – we love this. Supporting our local foodies, bridging the gap between them and their customers, bringing them in for tastings, all the while presenting their product on our blog, and/or Facebook & Twitter. We provide a space where customers can feel comfortable to window-shop, ask questions, and purveyors of great food items can connect with their audience. Stop in, peruse our shelves, we promise you’ll find something to take home with you.
For the holidays, for clients, bosses, friends, lovers, wives or husbands – we’ve got just about everyone and all times covered; we work to taste. Forget the tired basket of stuff they’ll likely never use, get them eatables, wine, and so much more Delivered, shipped, or local pickup.
Sweet, savory, spicy, and everywhere in between we take great care on crafting the perfect, ideal preserves – holding a few Good Food Awards. Forget the imported blotchy winter grocery store fruits and let us save the best of what was available when it was grown locally. Welcome to year-round flavortown.
A small footprint doesn’t mean a small mindset – heavily rotated wines, pasta sauces, bitters, soup mixes, spices, chocolate sauce, spreads, drink mixes, beans, hot sauces and more in veritable cornucopia of choices. We do our homework on picking the best stuff.
Shipped from our place, packed by hand and sent to your door.
Local, handmade, classic-chicago toffee that is always 'tops' on our list
New menu items featuring goodies pulled from our 'cellar.'
I grew knowing from-scratch cooking is the key to making something truly delicious. I'm at Southport Grocery and Cafe everyday creating this food experience that is a part of many traditions - the in-town friend, family meals with our preserves, a couple's Sunday morning stop. We're a part of people's lives - whether they like to cook or like to eat. After a decade plus in financial services as a CPA and culinary school, my passion evolved into creating food traditions, supporting local farmers, and giving an audience to artisanal producers.
I’ve never had a job outside of a kitchen. I started washing dishes in high school, attended culinary school at Johnson & Wales in Providence, had many 'normal' kitchen jobs and now have found a place to call home. I may be new here, but they've made me feel like I've already got a family.
It's always been all about the condiments for me. After earning a culinary degree and years of fine dining experience, sauces and condiments are the most interesting aspects of a dish. Southport Grocery has given me the artistic freedom and room to grow, for which any lover of preserves would appreciate. I love that I can utilize the no waste, 'whole orange' training.
I work here because I want to provide customers with the most memorable meal ever. The food is so good you don't have to sell it, it just starts up the conversation. Southport Grocery has become my home away from the east coast with the comfort food to match.
I truly enjoy what I do. I love taking simple ingredients, and turning them into delicious baked goods. I can't live without bread. I love kneading it, the smell of it, the sound it makes after it comes out of the oven, the taste of it. Seeing my bread, rolls and sweets make people as happy as it makes me is truly something special.
SGC isn't just a home away from home for me (because I've been here since 2008) but it's a place where learning and growth are encouraged - spitballing with the retail staff about cocktails, pitching dishes to the chef, or learning a whole new skill is what is done. From Chicago to Maine and back again I've never not loved this place.
I'm sort of a package-of-all-trades here. I do everything from dipping treats in chocolate to photography for the website to working on gift baskets - which I hand pick, I also pack up everything of ours on the shelf, label, set, display, do it all. Getting to explore the products we make and sell here has really expanded my tastes and expectations of food. Sharing that with others, seeing or hearing of reactions to what we send out, is really rewarding.
