No matter the schizophrenic nature of Chicago’s ever-fluctuating weather, things will always remain bright and sunny in this blue-and-yellow, breakfast-and-lunch-only spot. Enormous omelettes like the California—stuffed with avocado, tomato and green onion—are good standbys, but don’t discount the quirkier fare: “Bacon waffles” add bits of bacon to waffle batter for surprisingly tasty results. For lunch, the patty melt is a greasy, cheesy, delicious mess—exactly what it should be. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about the lackluster housemade pecan and cinnamon rolls.
