    Sandwich heaven. Apple, Brie, Arugula, & olive oil on crispy baguette clean & delicious. Macaroons & Fruit-Tart exquisite. Espresso highly gratifying. Must do. Raspberry Meringue not to miss.

    This right off Michigan Ave. gem has so much to offer from extravagant pastries to delicious sandwiches. Perfect spot to take a break from shopping and a must try for any foodie or coffee lover.

    I was visiting Chicago. I went there for a Wednesday afternoon pick-me-up. Their black coffee was the best I had. Bold & smooth. (Most coffee shops had bitter drip coffees.) Also, refills are free!

    Nice coffee and very nice atmosphere, we tried the Yogurt Parfait and a Chicken and Mushroom crepe and they were good, better try the Perfect Egg Sandwich it looks Yumi and well served.

    Le Breton: a ham sandwich with salted butter and cornichons. That's it. But thanks to the baguette that is at once soft and crackly, the those three ingredients are all you really need.

    We had the jambon et fromage crêpe, the salmon toast, and a croqué monsieur, and I recommend all of them! The latte was excellent as well.

    The pastry case is full of all manner of European-style cakes, tarts and breakfast pastries. An almond Danish and cappuccino is a distinguished beginning to any day; a pan bagnat is an elegant middle. Read more

    The macarons here are a MUST! Incredible pastry, incredible staff. I suggest coming early before they sell out of the pain au chocolat!

    Toni's is a great lunch option! The soups are very fresh and the daily quiche selections that we've tried are amazing! I want to try their pastries sometime soon!!!

    Flaky biscuits, good jam, good coffee. And they agreed to make me a soft boil egg instead the hard boiled one. Give a try!

    Authentic French food and pastries. Truly authentic, meaning the bread can be a bit tough for my liking. Upscale atmosphere and a little sidewalk seating.

    Try the almond Danish from our 100 Best list: This marble-replete space is a fine room in which to drink a cappuccino and enjoy a danish.

    The quiche lorraine was rich and delicious. It was perfectly paired with a fresh spring mix salad dressed with good olive oil & sea salt.

    The le boeuf sandwich is big enough for two meals, says Penny Pollack and the salade méditerranéenne with buttermilk-dill dressing has a lot going for it.

    Toni Patisserie & Café has a French Cuban Sandwich Panini in the Loop, when Cubans are in town looking for comfort food.

    If you find the baby trinket in your slice of King Cake from this bakery, you get good fortune for the next year. If you don’t, you get…a piece of cake without a tiny plastic baby in it. Read more

    The tartine was good, but I was surprised it was served on a rustic bread. Most I've had before were served on a flaky, buttery bread pastry. It was still good. The meringue tart was wonderful!

    Happened up on this place as I was "playing tourist" on a day off. Best surprise of the day. Loved my le boeuf sandwich and such a fun atmosphere.

    Did you know we're now offering wine? Relax with a glass over lunch or after work, or stop by and grab a bottle to take home!

    The croque monsieur is a delicious way to take a midday break. And the salted caramel tart is dangerously good.

    Great place for hearty sandwiches. Might be tough to get a spot for more than 1, even post-lunchtime though.

    OMG! Amazing. The pan bagnat is not traditionally prepared, the flavored are right and it is delicious!

    The almond macaron is exceptional with a clear nutty flavor though the filling is on the tough side.

    Disappointing. Despite having 2 griddles right up front, the crepes are not made fresh to order. They warm up crepes made earlier in the day. Bizarre.

    This place is totally overrated. Croque monsieur is okay, but the macarons are LOUSY and their service is real slow. However, the owner is SO nice and the location is convenient. I'll give them that.
