    I usually ignore Facebook ads, but one for Au Levain Chicago caught my eye. It is a pop-up bakery by the pastry chef of Bistro Campagne. The pain aux raisins is calling my name. Has anyone tried their goods?

    The breakfast challah with bacon might make my mom spin in her grave but he has a nice selection.

    I ordered pickup for Sunday, February 14 and loved everything! This was my first Basque cheesecake so I have no point of comparison, and now have no need for others as long as this remains available. Other items we ordered were challah (plain, no bacon), chocolate chip cookie dough (haven't baked them yet, vacuum-sealed in portions of 2, 4, 6 and placed in the freezer), and kouign-amann with brie + apple butter. Bistro Campagne has been one of my favorite carryout options since early Covid, so it was no surprise that ordering and pickup were smooth, safe, and easy.

    The siren song of the seasonal berry challah was too strong to resist. It is filled with vanilla pastry cream with cookie crumbles with housemade blueberry lavender preserve and fresh blueberries. Tasty but I wanted more filling throughout.

    I realized I hadn't posted photos of my first sampling of Au Levain. Pain au raisins was perfect. I enjoyed the brie/apple butter kouign aman as well. Can't go wrong with chocolate cream pie!
