Vosges Chocolates And Swedish Bakery Breads


When it comes to chocolate, Chicago based Vosges Haut-Chocolat is on a mission is to create a luxury chocolate experience rooted in a sensory journey, bringing about awareness to indigenous cultures through the exploration of spices, herbs, roots, flowers, fruits, nuts, chocolate and the obscure. Vosges explores the many cultures, artists and theories of the world’s people through the medium of chocolate. Owner/Chocolatier Katrina Markoff personally chooses every spice, flower and chocolate brought into the Vosges Chicago kitchen.

DID YOU KNOW? Most truffles average $2.50-$3.00 each. But if you’re lucky, you can snag a box of 16 truffles for $16, every once in a while! Vosges has strict quality control but accidents happen! And a truffle may get bruised a little here or dented a little there, a nut may fall off the top…when they get 16 of those that don’t make the best of the best, they are boxed up and sold at a reduced rate. So of course, available quanities vary. Vosges has two locations here in town –

Chicago – Downtown 520 N. Michigan Avenue 312.644.9450
Chicago – Lincoln Park 951 W. Armitage 773.296.9866
(Also available in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace, in SOHO in New York City, and select Neiman Marcus stores).

Located in Andersonville, Swedish Bakery began in the late 1920’s. That’s some history! Traditional Swedish products continue to be made, as well as an infusion of other European and old fashioned American items are produced at this neighborhood institution. Pies, cakes, cookies, breads! It’s all here. Fresh baked warm bread melts in my mouth! But you can also catch some great deals here on day-old and two day-old breads, coffee cakes, and sweet rolls. Bread gets reduced to just $1 and sweet rolls and coffee cakes can be reduced from 25% – 50% off!

Swedish Bakery 5348 N. Clark, Andersonville, 773-561-8919
