Soak up a sampling of Andersonville’s Swedish history with this five-stop walk along Clark Street.

Start the day with breakfast at Ann Sather (5207 N. Clark St. 773-271-6677), where potato sausage, Swedish pancakes, Swedish meatballs and sticky-sweet signature cinnamon rolls are all on the menu.

Ready for lunch? Head inside the blue-and-yellow façade of Swedish diner Svea (5236 N. Clark St. 773-275-7738) and chow down on smorgasar, or openfaced sandwiches.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with strudels, turnovers and cookies by the pound—spritz, drommar or almond fingers—at Swedish Bakery (5348 N. Clark St.773-561-8919).

Finally, make your way to Simon’s Tavern (5210 N. Clark St. 773-878-0894) to toast the night with a glass of glogg, Swedish hot spiced wine.
