WOMAN'S EXCHANGE, 942 North Michigan Avenue

For women only — and the only one of its kind in Chicago. Very exclusive. About fifteen tables at the rear of the Woman's Exchange of Chicago, which is a charity shop established by Mrs. Kellogg Fairbank, Mrs. Louis F. Swift, and other wealthy society women. You help yourself at the serving counter. Excellent home cooking. Salads and pastries best in the city, and excellent are the creamed cheese and anchovies served on rye bread. Heavily patronized by socially prominent women at tea time. When you are through lunching, you tell the cashier what you ate and she makes out the bill. No so bad!
