While the name Café Marie Jeanne may lead you to believe this Humboldt Park restaurant is of the standard, stuffy French sort, remember that Café Marie Jeanne really just means Mary Jane Cafe. This is to say, Café Marie Jeanne is an unpretentious, semi-Parisian, Montreal-inspired, all-day cafe and wine bar on the corner of California and Augusta. The menu is full of simple, comfortable, nourishing American plates with hints of its French inspiration here and there, with dishes like oysters, “Fancy Cheese,” smoked and pickled fishes, and duck frites on offer. The beverage lists are present on every menu -- breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- encouraging you to start your day with an amaro, and finish it with The Day After Amaro (cocktail).
