La Boulangerie is open in Logan Square.

After three years, La Boulangerie has officially returned to Logan Square, as the popular French bakery opened this morning in a new location. The new bakery, 3129 W. Logan Boulevard, is much larger than the original and has the feel of a cozy apartment with several different seating areas including overstuffed leather chairs next to the large windows.

Among the offerings are croissants, macarons, and an array of pastries and sandwiches such as “The Parisien” (butter, ham, swiss, cornichon on a baguette). The bakery also serves coffee and tea. Cooking tools and food items (like jam and herbs) are also available. The menu is virtually the same as that of the Ravenswood and Lakeview locations, according to manager Maggy Legros.

During warm months, the side yard will transform into an outdoor terrace with ample seating.

Legros said it feels “very nice” to be back in the neighborhood. In 2014, the bakery closed its original location of four years at the corner of Logan Boulevard and Milwaukee Avenue, just steps away from its new location. The shutter came in the wake of a “croissant controversy” with neighbor New Wave Coffee. La Boulangerie was prohibited from selling individual croissants (they had to sell them by the dozen), part of a non-compete agreement with New Wave.

“It kinda feels like we never left because we’ve been doing the farmers market every week for 10 years now,” Legros said. “We’ve always had a connection to the neighborhood.”
