floriole bakery and cafe - chicago, il
1220 west webster avenue
chicago, il 60614

canele de bordeaux - these were the biggest caneles i have ever encountered and they did not disappoint in the slightest. crisp on the outside and moist and custardy within, these wonderfully boozy cakes were an absolute joy to eat. it is very likely that caneles at floriole will become a chicago tradition for carrie and i.

almond croissant - rum soaked and twice baked, this flaky pastry was filled with a delicious almond cream and topped with sliced almonds and powdered sugar. this was another hit and worthy of its $4 price tag.

would i return? yes! as stated above, i plan to at least stop in for a pair of caneles during each of our future visits to chicago, but would definitely love to try more pastries as well.
