We stopped at Toni's for a quick coffee break late in the afternoon. We had a cappuccino, a mango coconut pâtisserie, a key lime tartelette and a hot chocolate. Overall, it was a good experience. The pâtisseries were not entirely authentically French but they tasted good and were not oversweetened. The hot chocolate was also made with real chocolate, not... More

I enjoyed the soup and sandwich special consisting of roast beef and white bean soup. My wife had the chicken cesar. Both of our meals were good. Their key lime pie was excellent. So was the little almond cookie.

Stopped by to grab a quick snack before heading over to Millennium Park. Macaroons are a must for a gluten free girl. I ordered two of each flavor, a small coffee, and water. Almost $30 later and we were out the door. The macaroons were perfect consistency but the price was just a little too steep. The menu has crepes... More

Thanks for stopping in and your kind words. Macarons certainly are a special treat ! My wife, Toni, and her team make them from scratch, by hand, fresh daily. FYI - They are only $ 1.00 all day every Thursday. Next time don't hesitate to introduce yourself. We love to talk ' Paris'.! More

If you would like to be transported to France and try authentic French dessert this is the place. The food is amazing and the sweets to die for. Come hungry since you will want to try everything. Even nice wine can be served with your sweets for you to feel like you are in France. I am sure I will... More

My sister and I indulged...a little this and that. Delightful raspberry meringue...raspberries were perfect, fresh. The macaroons, a weakness of ours, one of the best we ever had. The texture was just right, very solid flavors.

We just stumbled upon Toni's on our way to Millenium Park. The first time we shared the Citron en Framboise crepe and it was Amazing! Ambiance was lovely. The owner was walking around and personally touching each table which I appreciated. He chatted with us for a bit. A few days later that crepe was calling and we had to... More

Located close to the Cloud Gate park, Toni's offers classic Patisserie options with a superb selection of cakes, pastries, crepes, and classic sandwich. The atmosphere evokes old-world charm without too much glitz. I selected a Chocolate Dome for a midday snack, and it was amazing. Rich flavors delightfully created. Welcoming ambience and friendly staff make the shop an oasis in... More

Stopped for breakfast on our way to the Art Institute and was dazzled. The three people in my party all had different items for breakfast and we all said it was delicious, filling, and economical for the city. Crepes, breakfast sandwiches, and eggs Benedict were all consumed until all you could hear was utensils on plates.

It's very clean inside and there is a big variety of desserts to choose from. I really enjoyed my coffee & desserts! They also have food too but I think it's a cute place to meet with friends.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
