When I was living in Chicago, I discovered the amazing bakery Floriole. Sadly, I didn’t happen upon this gem until a few months before I moved but once I found it I was completely smitten.
Their pastries are beautiful, there is almost always a hum of happy energy coursing through the guests, and they serve their tea in these amazing tea pots that remind me of french press for tea people. When I was in town last weekend, I found time to stop in twice and soak up one of my favorite places in the city. I spent a few glorious hours flipping through magazines during my first trip and caught up with one of my favorite friends the next day. I wish we had a spot like this in Phoenix.
If you find the time to stop in, I recommend any of their teas and a croissant! I’m certain you can’t go wrong with any of their beautiful pastries, sometimes a classic is all you need.
