Enjoy lunch at Baker’s Street, located at 111 W. 1st St., Dixon
Margie and her staff offer incredible sandwiches and quiches beside daily specials in a relaxed atmosphere. Save room for any of Baker’s Street’s tempting chocolate offerings or one of their three signature specialties - choose from their 14 Layer Cinnamon Torte offering14 layers of delectable cinnamon with an exquisite chocolate filling piled with chocolate curls on top; their rich Bavarian cake - a chocolate cake made with a Bavarian fruit filling and finished with a chocolate drizzle or their Chocolate Ganache filled and topped in rich chocolate. Relax with their in-house roasted coffees and espressos or enjoy café mocha, hot chocolate or chocolate chia tea along with chocolate scones, muffins and tri-level brownies.

While in downtown Dixon take time to check out the many specialty shops that offer unique gifts, antiques and the latest fashions.

If a wine tasting is more to your liking you might want to consider The Crystal Cork Wine Shoppe, 219 W. 1st St., where you can do a wine tasting of a variety of wines including those with a chocolate flair or those that pair well with chocolate. The Crystal Cork offers wonderful Chocolate Ports, Chocolate Martinis and hand made chocolates from Gaytey’s in Chicago.

After lunch & shopping take time to stroll the beautiful River Front along the Rock River and stop in at the Dixon Welcome Center  While there check out all the Dixon & Reagan memorabilia.

Depart for home.
