Toni Patisserie

OK, so yeah, this place technically was open before the official grand opening par-tay and yeah, I know I'm a little late talking about it, but we're going to ignore all of that!

Toni Patisserie is a cute, European inspired Patisserie and Café dedicated to providing the highest quality "from scratch" products in an inviting atmosphere.

The Grand Opening party on Wednesday, Sept. 21 took place at the new Chicago location of the Hinsdale-based cafe at 65 E. Washington St., just east of Wabash Avenue.

The sweet, delectable treats were yummy. Since there's also a cafe, sandwiches, savory tarts and quiches are also served.

I'll have to give some of its later in the day treats a try though!
