When Lula Cafe opened in 1999, it helped turn Logan Square into a dining destination while fueling the city’s farm-to-table movement. The cafe's brunch menu offers a more laid back way to experience chef Jason Hammel’s cooking, which emphasizes seasonal produce in dishes like a summer squash breakfast sandwich with soft scrambled eggs and brioche French toast with peaches. Add a Bloody Mary or mimosa, or blend your booze with caffeine by ordering an espresso martini made with mezcal and cold brew. And try to get a seat on the patio, assuming it's warm outside.
Brunch is the perfect way to start your day, giving you the chance to fuel up with coffee and eggs or share a leisurely meal with friends where you enjoy bottomless booze and decadent dishes like stuffed French toast while taking in the views from a rooftop bar. While many restaurants eliminated their brunch menus as they focused on lunch and dinner, some of the best restaurants in Chicago are still serving one of our favorite meals. When you’re considering the best things to do in Chicago this weekend, start your adventures with a fantastic meal by hitting up a spot that serves the best brunch in Chicago.
