Chef/Owner, Floriole Cafe & Baker
Sandra Holl, the chef/owner of Floriole Cafe & Bakery, was born and raised in the Midwest. She returned to the area after attending culinary school, working in France and San Francisco. In 2006 Sandra and her husband started Floriole with a table, tent and a few pastries at the Chicago Green City Market. By 2010 they had grown their business into a flourishing full service cafe and bakery in Lincoln Park specializing in French inspired pastries rooted in midwestern ingredients.
