Toni Patisserie & Cafe is located steps away from Millenium Park in the heart of Chicago's downtown. Known for its crepes and french style bakery, Toni's also has a surprising lunch and dinner menu including a delicious Quiche Lorraine plated with Toni's famous glazed onions on mixed greens salad for 9$. My favorite time of year for Toni's is during... More

Authentic French cuisine, Delia cooks combinations. The Bree and apple sandwich was awesome. The grilled cheese "fromage" sandwich was also wonderful. Fun to watch them make crepes too! We sat outside. Quite close to the bean. Mimosas yummy too. Prompt delivery of order.

Order at the counter from a menu on the wall behind. Take a number placard to your table, with additional seating outside and in the atrium of the office building where the cafe is located. In short time, a friendly and efficient server will bring your order to you. I didn't notice anyone clearing their own table or leaving a... More

They offer not only pastries but French cafe food items that are well worth it. The Cream of Mushroom soup and hot chocolate are exactly like how I remembered it to be in France. The cookies were delectable as were the pain au chocolat. Please check this place out!

This sweet little café on a street corner in Chicago was a great find in my trip to the Windy City. Good coffee and perfect butter croissant. French music playing in the background. Perfect little pastries.

The first two times we enjoyed this delightful restaurant with terrific crepes in the morning. I enjoyed the ham and cheese crepes so much the one morning, I had them a second time. They were full of delicious ham and excellent cheese and served hot with a small salad. I also chose a great mocha. Unfortunately, when we decided to... More

We (husband, 2 older teenage kids and me) ate breakfast here on a Saturday morning around 10:00. We got a table right away. We ordered the Nutella crepes and Suzette crepes to share. They had wonderful flavor but were very tough. My daughter and I shared the continental breakfast. Loved it but would have liked another option (French bread, croissant)... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
