We had the Brie and apple sandwich which was so yummy and fresh and two macarons: almond and raspberry. Both were delicious. We found this darling spot as we were walking to the Art Institute and would highly recommend it.

Got the vanilla (not bad not the best), a gingerbread (good), eggnog (our favorite, so yummy!!! Compare the flavor to vanilla ice cream), and raspberry which we both did not like (too sweet, you'll love if you like a very sweet overwhelming raspberry flavor!

We visited Toni on a cold and blustery December evening, shortly before closing. The drinks we ordered, hot chocolate and latte were excellent. The Cafe has a very Parisian look and feel with much space between the tables and friendly service. We did not try the very enticing pastries but opted for regular chocolate chip cookies, which were good. Toni... More

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!
