Something You Should Eat: Gelato from Freddy's Pizza
There are few places like Freddy's Pizza left. A true neighborhood gem, this cozy, family-run grocery store and deli is a must-stop if you're ever passing through Cicero (or stuck on the Eisenhower). I love their savory items, but even more so, this time of year it's all about their Italian ice and homemade gelato. You'll have to try at least two flavors, since the decisions are painfully difficult. After you wolf down some pizza or arancini, be sure to save room for dessert!
