I take back what I said on Friday. I think the best latte I have had is actually from the French Floriole Cafe & Bakery in our lovely neighborhood of Lincoln Park. (We actually went there last weekend, too:) We like ordering lattes & croissants (mine was almond) because it makes us feel European, thus slightly making up for the sheer unhealthiness of having a latte & almond croissant for breakfast.
In addition to the delicious pastries and espresso, we like Floriole because some of the same families who were there last weekend were there this weekend, and the baristas and workers definitely knew their regulars. Especially charming was a father and little girl who ate their pastries side by side by the window. Another bonus is that this weekend they almost definitely hacked our Spotify accounts and were playing a mix of Beirut, Of Montreal, Bon Iver and Ray LaMontagne. Can't wait for next Sunday!
