Stop for a snack

Croissants were delicious. I also ordered a pastrami and rye. Very good, but could have used more pastrami (IMO). Bread was very tasty.

We went searching for this place based on some reviews we'd read, and boy am I glad we did. It's a cozy little shop with just three or four tables (there's a back room with a few more), and the aroma is heavenly. Staff were very friendly (especially the youngest one--dressed in a Santa suit for the holidays), and helped... More

Found this place when I was staying near by in the city, hidden gem in the city and a great place to grab a quick croissant for breakfast if you are shopping, working or staying near by. Small space but cosy. Riddiculous door that does not shut properly but the croissants are amazing and worth it. My favorite is the... More

I came to Hendrickx wanting a really amazing croissant. Unfortunately there were no more croissants left when I went there, but I took this to mean that I had missed something truly fantastic. Instead I got a apple turnover and was not disappointed. If you visit Hendrickx's website you can read about the entire story of the bakery. It's a... More

Fresh, homemade bread really makes these great sandwiches! The very best freshest chicken curry sandwich, tuna sandwich or egg salad. The food is clean and simple. An ideal location for soups and salads, as well. The homemade croissants are fabulous. It is a small intimate breakfast and lunch spot with charm and everything prepared fresh each morning!

A friend told us about Hendrickx, so we went there soon after we arrived in Chicago for a long weekend and ended up going back every day. The people who run the place are wonderfully friendly and love describing the ways that they prepare everything from scratch; you can peer into the back and see the bakers at work. As... More

It was everything I'd heard it was. Coffee was fantastic. The pastries were out of this world. Staff was gracious. Try the waffle!

This bakery is close to my work and it has been a wonderful new surprise for me to discover it in the area! I've consistently been visiting for lunch and the staff is so personal. I've even met one of the owners already! Their soups are fresh and not too salty as well as the bread and sandwiches too. This... More

After learning from our waiter the night before at Spiaggia that this establishment provided the absolutely yummy bread at their fantastic restaurant, we had to go here and pick up some more bread to take home. Didn't try any of their pastries here, but they looked great. Look forward to my next time in the city, where I will definitely... More
