New in Town: Vanille Patisserie Opening in Lakeview

Vanille Patisserie

Just in time for Valentine’s Day comes the opening of Vanille Patisserie Lakeview, the third and newest outpost of owner Sophie Evanoff’s beloved artisanal bakery. Lincoln Park and the Chicago French Market locations remain open — and busy.

If you’re a macaron fan, Vanille is a go-to bakery already; the Lakeview location, which officially opens Feb. 4, just makes it a little easier for North Shore fans to partake of the deliciousness. But of course, Vanille has so much more to offer: croissants, decorated cookies, gorgeous wedding cakes, dazzling mousse-and-cake-filled entremets (individually portioned desserts), tarts topped with a mosaic of jewel-like fruits, and more. And with this location’s extended hours — they will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays — you can get your late-night sweet on.

Look for Evanoff and her classically trained team to expand into gluten-free cakes at this new spot, a quaint space with a European feel. Heart-shaped macarons will make their once-a-year appearance for Valentine’s Day, so reserve yours now.
