Fantastic boulangerie/patisserie in Evanston. We were in Evanston for only 3 days but when back every morning for breakfast. Everything was great. I lived in France and appreciate good viennoiserie (croissant, pain au chocolat, pain raisin, tarte aux pommes, tarte abricot, etc). You won't be...disappointed. Very good quiches and lattes too.More

Stopped in with my grandkids for an after-school snack. We shared three selections, each of which blew us away. It's now on our after-school Friday's permanent list.

The aroma alone is enough reason to visit this charming Patisserie in downtown Evanston. There is plentiful outdoor seating, and indoor seating features whimsical seating arrangements that include small tables and a couch. The almond croissants, the multi colored macaroons and mini quiches made for...a perfect breakfast.More

Oh my goodness! Chocolate almond croissant and a latte - is there a better morning treat? Fresh and crispy. Quaint atmosphere. Great place to bring a friend!

A cute Parisian-style cafe in downtown Evanston! On a weekend getaway, we stopped here for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised at the authentic French croissants that are buttery and flaky and really delicious. We enjoyed a pear and chocolate croissant, an almond croissant, and a...spinach and cheese croissant. They were heavenly! Truly a taste of Paris!! Drip coffee quite tasty! COVID safe with masks and social distancing required, both in line to order and in choosing your safe seating. A few outdoor seats available.More

The croissants and pain au chocolat are quite good, and freshly made. Other offerings look enticing. Latte larger than cappuccino. Good not great. No Splenda. I miss their superb and unique Cannelles. Only by special order now.

I feel so fortunate I had the opportunity to enjoy this welcoming, charming and visually beautiful French Cafe and Patisserie in the center of downtown Evanston. I feel the staff here was welcoming and everyone here was a highly skilled barista. The spicy chai here...was so rich and delicious with oat milk I had to order 2 glasses! I started out with two delicious macarons with chai and found the sandwiches behind the glass cases to be too tempting to pass up. I chose the roast beef with garlic spread heated up and definitely savored every decadent bite of meat and toasty baguette. You can purchase chocolates here and other unique French candies. The decor here is elaborate and cozy with tables and couches so that you can relax quietly with your laptop or slouch down into a comfy couch. I couldn't imagine a better place to savor a light lunch, coffee or pastry.More

Best croissants you can find and macaroons are good too. What the most mind blowing to me was the iced tea. It’s pricey but delicious. Another great surprise is the little things like the Paris key chains and little gift type things available. It’s a...great place to sit and visit with a friend or hang out and read.More

Delicious. The only word for their wonderful food. The ambiance is relaxed. Have an afternoon tea and recharge. Nice place to take a brief escape from the day.

Patisserie Coralie in downtown Evanston works hard to present the authentic French coffee and patisserie experience with American sensibilities (as in NO smoking).
