Forward Chicago is just delighted to welcome our newest Community Business Connection – Cafe Selmarie. We are so pleased to have the participation of such a fantastic community gathering spot. Happy 30th Birthday to Cafe Selmarie!

Café Selmarie is an independently owned restaurant and bakery located in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood. The business opened in its same location 30 years ago, in 1983, as a tiny bakery café with just a few tables, a pastry case and espresso machine. It has since grown into one of the city’s primary neighborhood destinations for contemporary american dining as well as for its handmade baked goods. Café Selmarie serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch with menus created by Executive Chef Bryant Anderson, complimented by a boutique wine and beer list, plus specialty cocktails.

Café Selmarie is open 7 days a week: Monday 11am – 3pm, Tuesday through Thursday 8am – 9pm, Friday and Saturday 8am – 10 pm, and Sunday from 9am – 9pm. Visit us at 4729 N. Lincoln Ave in Chicago, or at 773-989-5595
