Floriole Cafe & Bakery

1220 W. Webster Ave.
Chicago , IL , United States

Owners Sandra and Mathieu Holl turned their Green City Market stand into this Lincoln Park bakery with a glass-paned facade that’s open to the sidewalk. French pastries still rule, including flaky croissants and caramelized canalés—those Bordeaux pâtisseries that resemble little, narrow bundt cakes concealing custardy rum-spiked centers. The brick-and-mortar space has also led to an expanded cafe menu featuring savory polenta topped with butter and breadcrumbs and La Quercia proscuitto sandwiches on baguettes made in house.
