Reasons to wait in line. Pre-coffee. Even in the cold.

LEMON-RICOTTA PANCAKES AT PRAIRIE FIRE
No plate of food has ever looked more unassuming (it comes completely ungarnished) but tasted so light, lemony and ethereal.

COFFEE CAKE AT INA’S
In a different universe, Ina Pinkney is serving us this coffee cake the moment we wake up, for afternoon tea and then again for a postdinner dessert. For now, we’ll agree to accept it as a simple, flawless breakfast treat.

SIMPLY HOTCAKES AT M. HENRIETTA
Like its Andersonville older sibling (m. henry), this Edgewater newcomer was barely open a month before it picked up a brunch queue. The draw is these pancakes, miraculously thick and light and completely worth waiting for.

THE FOOD BUDDHA’S “LOCO MOCO” AT SUNDA
It sounds like a mistake—hamburger steak and fried eggs buried under thick gravy and served over rice. But if last night was a rager, the mistake is not eating this.

SCONES AT THE FOUR SEASONS
Falling apart into crumbs of butter, these scones are a quintessential part of tea at the Four Seasons (and perhaps the part that most justifies the price).
