There is nothing better than starting your day off with some brunch. Here at Chrome City, we cherish the times we get to sit around the table with good friends, savory food, and heavenly drinks. We have pulled together a list of our five favorite brunch spots around Chicago from Old Town and Wicker Park to River North and Pilsen.
Kanela Breakfast Club
Although Kanela has multiple spots in the city, their Old Town location is ideal for a relaxed brunch. The vibe of the restaurant is a mix between cozy and chic, which makes for a great place to hang with friends. Our obsessions on the menu are the crab cake benedict, the chicken and waffle sandwich, and the tasty red velvet french toast..
With so many unique places to eat in Wicker Park, we think we have found the one. The Winchester is a minimalistic spot serving breakfast and American cafe fare. You have not lived until you have tried the wild caught shrimp & baker miller grits on their weekend brunch menu. Also, their cocktail selection is like no other, from danish coffee to the punxsutawny phil, The Winchester should be your next spot to try.
If you’re in the mood for something a little more swanky, River North’s Chicago Cut is the place to be on a Sunday morning. Considering Chicago cut is most known for their steak, we recommend you try their breakfast prime New York strip and two poached eggs paired with a fresh mimosa. If you want to start off your day in style and class, this is the place to go.
Steering away from a traditional American breakfast, Flo offers the best Mexican morning cuisine. Located in West Town, Flo is a hip Southwestern restaurant filled with alluring artwork. From micheladas to our favorite, the flores cocktail, Flo has a full service bar. Aside from their lengthy drink menu, they are most famous for their breakfast enchiladas and fruity pebbles french toast. If West Town is out of the way for you, they have a second location in Lakeview.
Dusek’s Board & Beer
Dusek’s Board & Beer is a well-known brunch spot in Pilson with a rustic vibe in a historical building. With such an eclectic menu it’s hard to choose our favorite dish, still there is no doubt that the challah french toast is one of our favorites. Their seasonal cocktail menu should not go unnoticed, the “english breakfast” is definitely a brunch staple.
