    Excellent breakfast dishes. The pastries are very fresh (the Pecan Roll is amazing!). Also, the breakfast flatbread is a must (bacon, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, cheese--all on a thin, crispy flatbread)

    The shells of the macarons are satin smooth and beautifully colored. Most have a great texture. The standout flavors include the choco-coconut, which tastes like a Samoa, and the mint.

    The only place in Chicago with authentic canele de Bordeaux. May I also say they are some of the best I have had in America. A canele and espresso and you will be transformed to Paris. -Malika Ameen,

    Great desserts especially rosé macaroon, and coffee. They write different things on coffee, which is so cute. Staff are super nice,no parking

    If you go to this place order the cheesecake it is out of this world. And try creme brûlée and pistachio white chocolate 😍👌🏽

    In the morning, they’re packed with tourists chowing croissants. In the evening, you have the place to yourself. Which is curious, because we love the simple charcuterie plates and Alsatian tarts. Read more

    It has become one of my top 3 favorite brunch places in Chicago 😊 the place isn’t big thou so expect a line if you go during peak hours.

    A cheerful morning spot. Try the house-made granola or the the European breakfast with charcuterie, croissant, baguette and butter, and an excellent cappuccino ($21). Read more

    If you're a fan of sinfully good chocolate cake, walk straight to the glass pastry case and order the Chocolate Obsession. That is all.

    Brunch menu is great - love the frittata. Macaroons to go are a great idea if you happen to be passing through

    At lunch time, quiches are heavenly with flat bread a close second. Tea is served the way it should be. Service can be slow at times.

    smooth as satin & vibrantly colored shells. try the choco-coconut (fancy samoa) and mint (think thin mints!) macarons for something different!!

    Cheesecake here is always on point. The raspberry tart did not taste as good as it appeared.

    Possibly the best coffee in the city. Try the tarte flambé, all the pizza topping goodness without the carb heavy crust guilt

    Disappointed to see they didn't have quiche, but the popover was way better than a quiche could have been anyway. Delicious!

    SO BAD. You should leave before even going in. The food was oily, salty, and the chef couldn't even perfect a simple burger patty. This restaurant is definitely not in the Peninsula's standards.

    The peninsula breakfast was great but the eggs were bland. However, the waffle, coffee, bacon and sausage was good.
