Sweet Rabbit Bakery is a small neighborhood bakery located in the outskirts of Roscoe Village. French in craft, American in style, eclectic in inspiration, everything is made fresh and in house, featuring locally grown, stone-milled grains.
The name comes from their focus on pastries (sweet!) and the fast casual vibe (rabbit!). Also, a slice of a well-eared sourdough loaf looks like a rabbit.
