Lost Larson Bakery Andersonville (Chicago) and mini three-stop morning.

I had read about Lost Larson Bakery in Andersonville in the summer, just before they opened, and I had wanted to go, but it got pushed to the back of the line. Last week was finally the time. This is a very fine bakery. The chef and owner Bobby Schaffer led the pastry programs for Blue Hill at Sone Barns in New York and three star Michelin restaurant Grace, in Chicago.

 
It was my good friend Russell who finally got me there.

 
They have quite a large selection. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
I started with a plain croissant. It was very good, very buttery.

 
Lots of layers.

 
Next was a coconut cherry croissant. With a topping of poppyseeds and a cream toping which was a bit like meringue or even marshmallow. 

 

 
A layer of cherry filling and a layer of almond paste mixed with coconut.

 
Next was a lingonberry almond cake.

 

 

 
Our last selection was a whole wheat baguette with butter. 

 

 

 
My favorites were the plain croissant and the baguette, although the others were very good also.

I think I hear ChiTownDiner's car starting and a finger punching in the coordinates for Andersonville...

2019 brings new hours...looks like a 9:20am arrival will still have a large pastry selection and then at 10am, right into their weekend lunch service!

David, nice to get a good quality croissant closer to home. The flakiness looks to be there along with a nice crisp butter shell. The pictures of the pastries and breads in Europe really showed the expertise and craftsmanship and art they bring to baking. I still think most people miss the satisfaction you can get from a good quality baguette and butter......Thanks......pnwchef

Hmmm...this is the only Saturday this month I'm not working.  Sounds like the rumblings of a meet-up.  I guess I could make a 9:20 start.  You don't mind being seen with me in my jammies, do you?

Just regular, but with an awesome My Little Pony theme.  I love those little guys.  They poop rainbows, ya know.
 
Saving the date, will do my best to be fully dressed upon arrival.

Is this a serious thing? I should be able to be there by 9:20. I’ll need to take a break from preparations for my tour, leaving the next day.
And after the bakery..........????

I guess stay tuned till Friday.  I'm ready to go if y'all are.  Not sure I want to make a full day out of it, but depending on the itinerary...

Well, Big Jones opens for lunch (Soul Food Week) at 11, although I was really trying not to overdo it before leaving on my tour. Maybe just a quick run to Hoosier Mama...... and then Poochie's..........

All set...we are good to go...9:20am it is, PJ's optional.  I like David's thinking...3 stops, solid choices, get this train a running!

FYI: Some Aldi stores have their own in house bakery. Those that do, offer an almond and chocolate croissant for only 99 cents that will stand head to toe with any croissant that I had while traveling through out Europe. Buddy, I'm suprised that you're not aware of the Aldi croissants. You're the one that turned me onto Aldi's European chocolate bars.

This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity for a certain talented cellist.

Weird Al is back to playing the hits and classics with his Strings Attached tour, a high-energy rock and comedy production, featuring his original band, costumes, props, a video wall and – for the first time – background singers and a full symphony orchestra.

After hearing about the Aldi’s croissants a while ago I tried one at the few Aldi’s with bakery in my area in Batavia. Unfortunately, it didn’t match up with the descriptions and I didn’t even finish what I had bought. I think I got a plain and maybe also a chocolate, but I’m not sure. Perhaps the ones in Wisconsin are better?

I'm curious of the price for the baguette.  I don't see it in the pics and it's not listed on their website.  The thing we notice in Paris is that they are usually in the neighborhood of one euro.  The best one we had last month was 1.25.  Even the ones we got from the grocery store were very very good.  Around here I can get a decent one but it is sure to be at least $3 and probably closer to $5.

I’m virtually positive I’ll be there. Not sure how much I’ll be able to do afterwards, because it’s a busy day if laundry and packing, and, oh yes, I have to lose 10 pounds before the tour starts on Sunday night. 😡😡😹😹

Can't promise a 9:20 arrival, but will be there in time for the 10am lunch service.  The Pickled Herring and Smoked Ham Sandwiches have the most appeal for me, followed by the Green Onion Avocado.
 
I'll take my chances on what's left of the pastries, but might ask you to snag a Chocolate Croissant for me, just in case.

Oh, I'm aware, but Aldi's renovation project hasn't reached Des Plaines yet.  We've still got a regular ol' store without the modern upgrades.  When they get here, I'll give 'em a try.
