A Unique French Bakery
Experience in Chicago
Maison Marcel is a French bakery located in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, offering a healthy menu with the freshest ingredients, in addition to the signature artisanal pastries by our Maître Boulanger from France.
The scent of our freshly baked croissants and roasted coffee greet you the second you enter our doors.
Grab a spot on the couch and catch up with a friend over pastries and hot beverage of your choice, or re-energize after an intense workout a with our healthy smoothies at our juice bar, or bring your laptop or book and enjoy the natural lighting in our boho-inspired deco open space.
We will make sure to make you feel right à la maison (at home).
