Café Selmarie is a contemporary American restaurant and bakery located in the heart of Lincoln Square, Chicago since 1983. We are open for online ordering, carry-out, and delivery! We’ve got breakfast, lunch, and dinner items, plenty of bakery favorites, even beer and wine to go. We’re also doing a selection of family dinner packages for two or four people.

We’re open – and we have plum cake!

Renovations are complete and we are open! Even better, plum season is underway and we have plum cake available whole and by the slice! Our full kitchen menu is available all day for carry-out only, and the patio is available on a first-come, first-served basis for folks to enjoy their carry-out. We can’t wait to see you!

Here’s how carry-out and delivery works:

Cafe Selmarie bakery counter

Online ordering is still the fastest and most convenient! First, select carry-out or delivery. Pick-up is inside the café at the bakery counter. And if you select “curbside pickup” when ordering carry-out, just call when you arrive and we’ll run it out to you!

If you’d like to enter the café, please wear your mask over your nose and mouth regardless of your vaccination status, and observe the distancing markings. If you would prefer to remain outside, give us a call to place your order and we’ll bring it out to you.

Delivery is available all day, and it can be ordered online or by phone! It’s provided by DoorDash through a partnership with our online ordering provider, Toast. Delivery area is 5 miles, and 100% of your tip goes to the driver.

Pay us a virtual or in-person visit! However you get here, we are so looking forward to seeing you!
