Formerly called Ennui, this cafe is now known as the Growling Rabbit. The selection of baked goods and coffee-type beverages is good, the ambience is pleasant and relaxed, and the events are great. I have attended several symposia here, organized by Erik Graff; they are invariably excellent. For a its combination of cookies, coffee, and conversation, I don't think the Growling Rabbit can be beat by any establishment in Rogers Park (or for some distance beyond).
