From Charleston to L.A., these bakeries put a creative, seasonal twist on cupcakes, pies, and cookies.

Floriole, Chicago

2 of 26

Originally a stand at Chicago’s Green City Market, Floriole is now a buzzy café in the Lincoln Park neighborhood with expanded offerings of sandwiches, salads, and wood-oven-fired pizza. Baker Sandra Holl’s honey pecan sticky buns, fruit galettes, and buttermilk panna cotta use the finest ingredients, from Valrhona chocolate to European-style butter. She has a knack for turning mistakes into inspired treats; a botched batch of pistachio brittle became pistachio croissants with a lemon glaze.

Must-Try Item: Gateau Basque, an almond cake filled with pastry cream and seasonal fruit. floriole.com
