Delicious bakery

I fell in love with the Lavender Shortbread Cookie...wish I had eaten it while I was there and I would have bought more!! The ham and cheese croissant was ok, a little mushy (too much cheese) for my taste, but the pastry crust was good.

The coconut macaroons were truly as delicious as they are made out to be on "Best Thing I Ever Ate". Beautiful pastries. Also delicious were the rhubarb chiffon tarts and some sort of decadent chocolate dessert. Very friendly staff as well.

The chocolate croissant is where it's at. Also, this company provides a lot of the pastries for MSP.

Tried Salty Tart - what a treat! Got their day old bread, was a great deal at only $2.50/loaf and also tried some of their crossaints, cupcakes, muffins, and Surly cupcakes. I didn't like the Surly cupcakes personally but the rest of the treats were amazing! Great place to grab some sweet treats and friendly service!

This is one of many businesses within the Global Market Place. Four of us sampled a selection of several items including cakes, tarts and cookies. The predominant flavor of each selection was sugar, not the underlying flavor of the item.

This Patisserie features fine french pastry and breads. The finest milled flours are used and everything is made in small batches by hand. NOTHING is pre-fab frozen dough like so many other bakeries. They're also very knowledgeable and friendly about their goods.I've shopped here a lot and have NEVER been disappointed with anything. In addition, all of their pastries and... More

OMG. That should sum it up. This little place in Midtown Global Market is a treasure to find and to eat. I asked them if this was the only time in my life to eat here, what should I get. Without hesitation, they all said the brioche and recommended extra napkins. Simply divine! The ham and cheese croissant was tasty,... More

I usually get something at the Salty Tart when I visit Midtown Global Market. They have good bread, unique cupcakes, and decent cakes. What really keeps me coming back, though, are the macaroons. They have a lightly toasted crunch on the outside and a moist, chewy center that is just the right balance of coconut and sweetness. These honestly are... More

They have some really good but overpriced pastries. I love stopping in for a special treat. I would recommend any of the ones with chocolate as I have tried most of them and they were all good!

I started out with a ham and cheese croissant and finished off with the most decadent, rich, comforting piece of bread pudding. I read the chef bio hanging in a display case and learned that this bakery is owned by a woman named Michelle Gayer who has the Chicago-famous Charlie Trotters on her resume. You can get a whole meal... More
