We were in Chicago and we passed by a little place that caught my eye. It was a beautiful fall day and people were sitting outside enjoying coffee.
It was calling my name. I had to stop in. Good decision! One look at the gorgeous display of pastries and I knew I was in for a treat! The place is called Pierrot Gourmet.
It may be just a few blocks away from busy Michigan Avenue but it feels more like you’re at a little café in Europe.
And, the coffee! Well, let’s just say it was definitely worth blogging about! I love it when the barista surprises me when fun latte art! Well, this time I was really wowed! I’ve heard of monogrammed towels and sheets. In fact, I love them both! But, monogrammed coffee? Yep, my latte had the cafe’s initials P. G. on top. How cool! To go with my coffee I just had to order one of their homemade croissants. Let’s see, plain, chocolate, or wait, almond! My favorite! They even warm them up. Pure heaven!
So, if you’re in Chicago, you need to come here from a cup of jo and a pastry too! If you can’t get to France, it’s the next best thing! I can’t wait to come back! What’s your favorite place for coffee? Tell me all about it and email me a picture too! I’m always looking for that next best cup! Check back soon to see what I find!
