Floriole began as a stand at Chicago’s famed Green City Market, where for nearly 5 years we sold our rustic, French pastries in a 10-by-10 tent. We dreamed then of having our own brick-and-mortar space, and that dream came true in 2010 when we opened our beautiful cafe and bakery in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Expanding on our market pastry offerings, our menu now includes breads, sandwiches, salads—and, of course, more pastries. We remain committed to using the best ingredients available. Most produce, meats, dairy and cheeses are sourced directly from sustainable farms in the region. We use organic flour and sugar, Valrhona chocolate, European-style butter and cage-free eggs.
Floriole strives to be a business that is good for the earth and our community.
We do this by:
finding delicious ways to reduce food waste
recycling and composting
using real plates, cups and utensils
reducing energy usage
sourcing ingredients from local and sustainable farms
donating leftover food
