We stopped in the early afternoon to get some refreshment and sustenance, after walking around Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile all morning. I had a hazlenut croissant and an apple turnover and my friend had a salad. The food was pretty good and I...More

I have been here a few times over the years and it is always very good. The croissants are light, flakey, and have a small amount of filling. There is nothing heavy or greasy about them. This last time I got a cherry and a...More

We enjoyed croissants and coffee this morning - sitting outside. My husband had the chocolate croissant and I had the cherry chocolate. Both were great - perfectly baked - but my cherry chocolate was best. There are 7 outside tables and two rooms inside you...More

Hendrix is a modest bakery that also makes very good European pastries. While the selection is limited, the offerings are of good quality and delicious flavors. The bakery goods are similarly well made and the coffees are individually and freshly prepared. There are only 3-4...More

Excellent bacon, eggs and waffle brunch at Hendrickx. Warm, engaging and attentive owner and chef make sure everything is just right. So authentic that last time I was charged for a second cup of coffee was...in Europe 😉

Hendrickx Bakery is always the first stop for me when I go to Chicago. It's small and smells wonderful because all the baking is done right there using European techniques rarely seen in the US. If you haven't experienced the difference you definitely need to...More

AKA "The Belgium Bakery," this tiny eatery is located in the block west of north Michigan Ave. and is a real "find." Intimate space for those who wish to dine in. Delicious bread and coissants baked daily. Amazing desserts, little works of art and tasty....More

This is a true bakery and pastry shop making traditional products with fresh, natural ingredients. The Belgium style white bread, croissants, pastry etc are all superb. This is not a chain bakery or cupcake factory turning out mass produced dross. This is a true bakery...More

Had an almond croissant and what I liked was it was not overladen with excess butter. What was missing though is there was not enough almond paste to accentuate the croissant perhaps the baker had an off day? the Doctor hit me with a helpful...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
