Eat italian dream italian

Caffè Baci is proud to be a Chicago native. 

For the last 22 years, since our inception, we have been pursuing the hearts of our customers through really good, Italian food. All of our recipes are straight out of momma’s scrappy looking cook book. We know Chicagoans are a discerning group, so we have developed a menu that earns the favor of our people. Chicago is our people. Freshly baked bread from scratch every day arrives at our stores early in the morning so we can assemble the best sandwiches we can. Cured meats imported from Italy have been critically chosen and matched with cheeses that are sourced from native farms. Coffee beans by Caffè Umbria are roasted and flown in from the U.S.’s coffee central, Seattle, with ties to a long standing familial tradition that perfectly suits our desire to serve something really special.


Let us bring the kitchen to you.

We believe it is simply not worth purchasing catering services, no matter the convenience, if it cannot deliver good food and well. Our catering menu is not "just another caterer." We have developed a robust menu that does not compromise on quality of product nor taste. "Small and focused" means we have the space to take care of our customers in a way that is personal and attentive. We place a high value in presentation but with an even greater focus on quality and experience. Caffè Baci Catering can service not only your next party at home, but will flawlessly execute those corporate meetings and luncheons.
