Great baguettes, croissant in the Loop?

Very fast trip to Chicago (~40 hours) and we usually need good pastries and bread in the morning. Our hotel is located at 10 S. Wabash - any recommendations within 1/2 mile walk?

If not, perhaps a good pancake place?

  1. P.S. I should have mentioned that good to us does not mean 'La Petite Boulangerie' or similar chains.

    1. I like Toni Patisserie

      1. Intelligentsia Coffee has a decent pastry selection, IIRC.

        Also if you like doughnuts, you're right by Do-Right Donuts.

        1. For pancakes, there is a location of the local Bongo Room on S. Wabash, but it is about a mile south of where you are staying.

          1. Closest pancakes are probably at Wildberry Café,, which is on the north side of Millenium Park (Randolph & Michigan Aves., about 5 blocks from 10 S Wabash). I've never eaten there but I believe that it is generally considered pretty good.
