Floriole To Offer Passion-Filled Chocolate, Hand-Tied Bouquets on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whether you’re celebrating with a long-time love, new partner (or someone you just met on a dating app) make it extra sweet with a treat from Floriole Bakery & Café.
Husband and wife team Sandra & Mathieu Holl have created a series of extra special, extra decadent desserts for Valentine’s Day. Chocolate lovers will go crazy for Floriole’s rich Chocolate Ganache Soufflé Cake while those who prefer something lighter can opt for Hazelnut Linzer Heart Cookies filled with Raspberry Jam. Conversation Heart Cookies that resemble the classic Valentine’s Day candies will feature fun saying and expressions of love.
Guests looking for something a little more exotic will love the Milk Chocolate Mousse, which looks like a mini cake. It’s filled with a gooey Passion Fruit Caramel center and topped with Passion Fruit Cream.
Looking to make your Valentine’s Day as easy as possible this year, Floriole has teamed up with Fox Glove Studio to offer hand-tied bouquets at the bakery on February 14th.
About Floriole Bakery & Café: Chicagoans were first introduced to the decadent French pastries of Floriole at a small stand within the city’s beloved Green Street Market. Co-owners Sandra and Mathieu Holl opened a brick-and-mortar location in 2010, which features an expanded menu that includes salads, sandwiches, breakfast items and even more pastries.
The seasonally driven menu is created using ingredients like organic flour and sugar, European-style butter, Valrhona chocolate and cage-free eggs. Most produce, meats, and cheeses are sourced directly from sustainable farms within the region.
Highlights from the current menu include a Twice-Baked Almond Croissant soaked with Rum Syrup and filled with Almond Cream, a Buckwheat & Oat Scone served with House Jam, a Maple Pecan Cookie Flavored with Orange and a Parisian Sandwich made with Smoking Goose Ham, Raw Milk Cheddar, Butter and Old Fashioned Mustard served on a Baguette.
Guests flock to the Lincoln Park bakery café for the crave-worthy food as much as they do for the genuine hospitality and comforting ambiance. High ceilings, large windows hardwood and brick throughout give the space a bright, airy and slightly rustic feel.
With accolades that include Top 10 Bakeries across the U.S. (Fodor’s Travel) and Top 10 Baguettes in America (Bon Appetit magazine,) it’s clear that Floriole has carved out a very special place for itself not only in the hearts of its patrons but within the industry as well.
Floriole is located at 1220 W. Webster Ave. They are open Tuesday – Friday from 7:00 am – 5:30 pm and Saturday – Monday from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm. For more information, high resolution images or to speak with co-owners Sandra and Mathieu Holl, please contact Samantha Crafton Public Relations directly.
