My research corresponds to that of Talkendo - Maple Leaf Candies & Grill was located at 53 W. Van Buren. Below is the same view from June of 2017.

53 W Van Buren

If the Chicago Daily Tribune from June 2, 1942, is accurate, this place was at 53 West Van Buren.

The building's long gone by now (I certainly don't remember anything like it), but it would have been under what is now the Library/State/Van Buren Stop.
