Luanne's Devil's Food Cake is very moist, very chocolaty, and dotted with large pieces of sweet cherry. A great cake!

October, as the weather turns (relatively) cold, is the beginning of Hildebrandt's chili season.

The German potato salad has a minimum amount of vinegar, but makes up for it by being loaded with bacon.

The tips are for a good cause.  No doubt a building this old is expensive to upkeep.

Some vegetables for sale.  While others know Hildebrandt's for their excellent sandwiches, the people in the surrounding neighborhood know it as their local store.

Luanne fills out your ticket and then it is delivered back to you along with your food.  When you are finished eating, take it to the register to pay.

Today, Hildebrandt's is mostly about lunch, but it still stocks a small assortment of groceries as well as a huge inventory of interesting and exotic candies.
