Welcome to La Fournette. We bring to you an authentically French bakery and café through a uniquely different experience. We bring generations of expertise and craftmanship and blend it with new ideas, culture and spirit.
As was true of their founding bakery in Schnersheim, France, where the village markets dictated the daily offerings, La Fournette’s products are respectful of the seasons and local produce. Crusty, aromatic, and flavorful; the way bread is supposed to be, most of our breads are made with natural sourdough starters, a slow process that results in superior flavor and texture. We use all natural flavors, nothing artificial, to achieve the highest quality product.
All of the products are made in our own bakery which was designed to be energy efficient and operate with minimal waste. The Zimmermanns spent years researching and planning before opening La Fournette to ensure that their customers in Chicago would enjoy the same quality and small-town welcome that they did in Schnersheim.

This was my second order with La Fournette and it was just as disappointing as the first. The first time less than half of the items were available and again, half the order was missing. Sadly, they were items that I planned to use for the Holiday. Both times I ordered well in advance so it would seem that a bakery specializing in various breads would be able handle all requests or at least contact the individual for substitutes. It is definitely time for a lesson in customer service. Sadly, LaFournette has the best Baguette in Chicago........................................
