A North Shore institution since 1938, Bennison’s is now owned and operated by the Downer family. Jory Downer, who came on board with his father in 1975, won the grand prize at the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie in Paris in 2005, establishing himself as one of the best bakers in the world. Three generations now work in the bakery making delicious specialty items. An amazing spot for a morning chocolate croissant, but you really can’t miss with any of the pastries here! You can also find them at the Evanston Farmers’ Market, Andersonville Farmers’ Market, and Green City Market.
