  • This place is the bomb. But get there early. Once they sell out, no matter how early, they close! You will never ever leave this bakery with just one item.
  • Fabulous country white bread, an excellent almond croissant, but selection of breads was limited on a Saturday morning. Early days still! Loved walking out with my paper package tied up with string!
  • An Evanston treasure. Elevated bread and pastries, but not cheap.
  • Amazing breakfast pastries.
  • wonderful enough to make a Jewish girl snarf down yeasty flax rolls during Pesach. this, and only this store, has caused me a carbohydrate fixation.
  • Truly impeccable bread focused bakery. One of the best in the Midwest- get a loaf to go and a pastry to stay. Iced coffee also solid.
  • My favorite place in Evanston for coffee and the country bread (as good as pain poilane in France) but above all for owners Ellen and Julie who are almost always there for a personalized hello.
  • Great croissants and classic French pastries. Quality is exceptional. They do not have a great variety of things but what they do have they do expertly.
  • Khouign Aman. Stop. They could serve nothing else.
  • The philosophy here is to support local businesses. In addition to getting all their organic grains from neighboring areas, they also partner with a few breweries to use their spent grains for loaves.
  • Great breads and treats. Lovely pastries. Lattes and cappuccinos are ok but welcome -- they're a bakery first.
  • Try the kouign amann. Yummmm!
  • Best bread in evanston!! Fruit croissants are amazing!
  • Order a latte and buy as much bread as you can before they sell out!
  • Amazing bakery for croissants, pastries and bread. Great coffee- grab and go. No indoor seating.
