Café Selmarie

4729 N. Lincoln Ave.

(773) 989-5595

Opened in 1983, Café Selmarie began as a small bakery specializing in European-style cakes, pastries, and breads. Now, the Lincoln Square spot is a full-service café complete with an espresso bar, although the baked goods are still a highlight. Patrons can dine inside, surrounded by bright yellow walls, rotating local art, and white globe lights, or outside on the seasonal patio. The restaurant is particularly popular for brunch thanks to signature dishes like the brioche French toast and chilaquiles casserole, made with eggs, corn tortillas, chicken, and spicy chile sauce. An interesting beer and wine list rounds out the offerings.
