Our list of the 14 best breakfast and brunch dishes this year.

Best breakfast and brunch dishes

Poached eggs at Avec
  • Restaurants
  • Mediterranean
  • West Loop
This updated eggs benedict swaps the English muffin for sourdough toast and opts for a lemony hollandaise sauce. But the secret is a layer of ‘nduja, a spreadable pork sausage that adds spiciness to the dish. $12.
Honey Badger at Bad Wolf Coffee
  • Restaurants
  • Cafés
  • Lake View
You won’t go wrong with any pastry Jonathan Ory makes, but right now we’re crazy about his latest offering, the honey badger, a sweet honey almond cake that’s a play on a bear claw. $4.
