It’s that time of year! The temperature is continuously dropping, and it’s dark outside before you leave your work desk. But with that comes the holiday lights intertwined in the branches of the leafless trees and ribbon wrapped around glowing street signs. While the cold weather may not be ideal for everyone, there is no denying Chicago is magical this time of year. To make this holiday season even more special is Toni Patisserie and Cafe–Chicago’s one-stop shop for all of the delicious and distinct holiday treats.
The European-inspired cafe is located right in the heart of downtown Chicago with a shop in Hinsdale as well. Toni Marie Cox has brought her Parisian flair to Chicago blessing us with her cakes, crepes and baguettes. While everything at Toni Patisserie is mouthwatering, we are particularly enamored by her holiday treats.
From Holiday Stollen to Saucisson de Chocolat, Toni Patisserie has just what you need. Impress your friends with the Holiday Stollen, a traditional holiday bread packed with fruits, nuts, rum-soaked raisins and coated in cinnamon sugar. Or win the best award for a secret santa gift at your work’s holiday party this year with Toni’s Saucisson de Chocolat. This delicious decadence consists of Belgian dark chocolate ganache rolled with pistachios, candied oranges, grand marnier and shortbread pieces. All you’ll have to do is pick it up and practice pronouncing it. Gift your siblings with the tasty and traditional peppermint bark and set your table with fun and festive holiday cookies. Whether you aspire to be the hostess with the mostest this holiday season or the greatest gift giver among your friends and family, Toni Patisserie has got you covered.
