Now that the holidays are over, can we skip right to summer? The weather in Chicago is beyond freezing so it has been easy to go into hibernation mode (especially since I am still on winter break). It didn’t take long before cabin fever set in though and I was itching to get out. I’ve been wanting to go to a French bakery called Maison Marcel for a while now so it was a perfect excuse to brave the cold and head over to Lakeview to check it out.
I loved the decor and vibe here. It was the perfect mix of Free People, farmhouse chic and French bakery all rolled into one. I’m currently dreaming up some ways to make our bedroom feel more complete so I was feeling extra inspired – now I just have to get Tasso on board! 😉
With freshly roasted coffee, delicious croissants, and a cozy ambiance, it was easy to feel right at home in this charming little place.
They have so many appetizing options for lunch as well so I will definitely make my way back soon. I’ve got my eye on the butternut squash soup and the chicken & greens salad – yum!
Now that winter is here to stay for a while, I think I’ll be checking out a lot more cafes to prevent the winter blues. I am looking forward to exploring some new ones!
