This is one of two places in the city with the best croissants. It is small like a Paris bakery. There is some seating. Espresso is good. They also serve quiche but I did not have it. A gem!

This cafe has the best French pastries in Chicago, hands down. Don't bother with the mediocre croissants and eclaires at the trendy spots downtown or the cafes trying too hard with fancy decor. Instead travel here to this north side gem for the most perfectly...More

This restaurant is run by a French chef trained in Paris. The food is amazing, authentically French, and delicious. The owners, both from Paris, import many of their ingredients from France, and it shows. The food is fresh, the service is excellent, and the owners...More

Perfect French croissant and bread. It was a shame for the attitude on a Saturday of the short French guy at the counter. He looked annoyed when I asked him (in French) if he spoke French since I speak French too. Would give 5 stars...More

These are the only croissants I’ve been able to eat since going to Paris. This place imports its flour, butter, and chocolate from France, the chef is French, and the result is the most delicious croissant I’ve eaten in the US.

This little cafe and restaurant is run by several young people from France who have made this location a delightful place for take-out, breakfast and lunch. It somehow feels a little bit like France in there. Many of the ingredients, such as flour, are imported...More

Food.is good, a little snooty, maybe it's because they're French and don't get Midwestern American "nice/friendly". A bit expensive for what you get but it's high quality and fresh. It just feels stuffy and rigid. But you can get past it.

This French cafe is a real treat. The two owners are from France and built their dream business which they run expertly. The menu includes savory tarts, sandwiches and more. And their desserts are not to be missed. Totally delicious! You can eat inside or...More

A few blocks down the street from wrigley field and this little gem of a French coffee pastry shop is really good. They have a huge outdoor area, that's not super fancy, but just nice to hang outside. Worth the stop in to get a...More
