Delightful Pastries Back to School Specials

Nothing says back to school better than a lunch box filled with wholesome goodies and tasty snacks. Delightful Pastries at the Chicago French Market says no lunch box is complete without one of its fabulous brownies ($3.50 each). Whether it be the Paradise (a brownie filled with layers of pecan and caramel, topped with bittersweet chocolate ganache), Fudge (amazing brownie combining an all butter crust and Belgian Callebaut chocolate), or Triple Decker Peanut Butter(brownie topped with peanut butter and delicious chocolate), your child will be the envy of the class.

If you’re not into chocolate or have nut allergies, try Delightful’s Lemon Bar (made of all-butter-crust with freshly squeezed lemon juice) or their Cranberry Orange Squares (sweet cookie dough made with fresh cranberry and orange filling, topped with cinnamon streusel), always a crowd pleaser. 

Can’t decide? Don’t despair. Delightful Pastries also offers a sampling brownie tray ($25/40 pieces) a perfect gift for the class to start the year out right. The temptation may be too great. (We suggest that you also pick up extras for yourself and to share with office colleagues.) 

Looking for healthy choices, perfect for you and your kid’s lunch? Delightful Pastries also is the creator of wonderfully fresh homemade sandwiches and soups all made from scratch using family recipes. "Even the sauces in the sandwiches, such as homemade horseradish sauce, are made in-house daily. We believe that every customer deserves the best quality food just like how we make them at home,” says co-owner Robert Hawryszczuk. What this means is that all Delightful Pastries sandwich ingredients are freshly prepared without preservatives or other fillers.  

“If you can imagine a sandwich where the homemade bread is just-baked, the meat is local and all natural, the bacon is lean, thick-cut and locally cured, and where the ham and pork cutlets are from a local Polish butcher, then you have a good idea as to why our sandwiches have so many fans,” says Delightful Pastries co-owner Nico Hua. 

Chicago French Market sandwich favorites include The Polish ($8.25), with Polish ham, Swiss cheese, homemade horseradish sauce, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, tomato and field greens, served on a fresh butter croissant; The Thanksgiving ($8.25), hand carved turkey breast, Swiss cheese, homemade horseradish, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, cranberry sauce, tomato and field greens on a fresh butter croissant; The Fusion ($8.25), shrimp salad, mayonnaise, spice, pickles and field greens on a fresh butter croissant, and The Three Piggly Wigglys ($10), made with Polish ham, lean crispy bacon, pan fried schnitzel and pickles, served on an “everything” bun. Peanut butter lovers can’t resist He Lives! ($8.25 with peanut butter, grape jelly, lean crispy bacon, banana, house secret sauce, all served on a fresh butter croissant.
