Our Vision:
Broken Tart is our ode to the broken-in-yet-always-charming delis of Europe. It’s our tribute to the old school Chicago bakeries we frequented as kids. And it’s our love letter to the simple magic that exists in family kitchens.

We adore these places for the sense of community and belonging they create - and for their ability to change the course of your day with a single bite.

Broken Tart combines the best of these places to feed and delight our family, friends, and neighbors. We offer a friendly face at the counter, a distinctive space to sit and enjoy, and a thoughtful menu made to satisfy your entire crew.

Our Mission:
At Broken Tart, we are committed to making the every days AND the milestone days a little more special.

We believe that great food and drink (and the people you enjoy it with!) can transform even the smallest moments of your day into lasting memories.
