2/28 Update: Limited Indoor Service With Proof of Vaccination

Although Chicago has ended its vaccine mandate as of 2/28, we have decided to continue to require proof of vaccination and photo ID (for customers over 16) for dine-in service. Children under 5 are now welcome to dine in. Our patio will remain open (weather permitting) for carry-out.

We have a limited number of tables available for indoor table service. Party size limit is six people; reservations will be accepted for after 3pm. We are not able to make exceptions at this time.

Masks are strongly encouraged at the bakery counter and when interacting with our staff; our staff will continue to wear them as well. We believe that this is the best way to keep Cafe Selmarie safe and accessible to everyone, including those who are too young to be vaccinated.

Please give us your patience during the reopening process, and respect our staff, who is doing their best to serve you. As you know, it has been a long journey to reopening our dining room, and our employees have worked very hard to make it happen. We are all very excited to see you in our dining room again!

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!
