This is a really nice place to have a Birthday party for girls. Al the little friends will get a chance to have a doll sitting besides them. They also got plenty time to play with different American Girl dolls.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

I believe you are able to order a cake even if you are not having a party there. Call the customer serve number that is available online and they will confirm it and you can then make your reservation and order the cake.
