La Fournette Brings the French Artistry of Bread-Making to Chicago

When Pierre Zimmermann and his wife Michele moved from France to Chicago about a decade ago, they brought more than a century’s worth of baking experience with them! It was all thanks to Pierre’s family, who’d been in the baking business in France for four generations. At La Fournette, they show off the family legacy every day.

Pierre is constantly creating in the kitchen, with his signature baked good being bread. Try the classic French baguette, the rustic pave, or his specialty, the beer-infused bread. Searching for something sweet? You can’t go wrong with macarons, spritz cookies, or the house-made salted caramel spread. La Fournette’s cafe also serves a full spread of breakfast and lunch bites, including salads, sandwiches, and quiches. The fare is available for delivery, takeout, and sit-down dining with social-distancing and mask-wearing enforced.
