DAVIS STORE, State and Van Buren Streets

Something interesting here are the cozy booths, large enough for six or eight people, provided for the convenience of shoppers from the suburbs surrounding Chicago. Each booth bears the name of a suburb. For example, if you are from Evanston you go to the Evanston booth and there most likely run into other Evanstonians. Table d'hote luncheons at 50 and 65 cents are on the menu, and service is also a la carte.
