Chicago Diner
Logan Square

Boystown's famed vegetarian diner opened this second location in Logan Square with the same food, but more booze. Brunch is a madhouse—people love those big, doughy cinnamon rolls, we guess. We're skipping the rolls and going for the vegan pancakes (dense, but nice flavor), a tofu scramble or—if we're feeling ovo-lacto—a Mexican bowl of rice, guac, black beans and eggs.
