How is this brunch-lunch spot different from the restaurant of the same name in Wicker Park? Menu-wise, it’s almost exactly the same—a diverse clientele of South Loop locals mingles over the same candy-sweet lemon-blueberry pancakes and creamy rock shrimp–and–avocado breakfast burritos. Only at this location, they get to eat it at a table in a cheery, sunlight-filled room. And unlike the Wicker Park locale, they won’t have to wait an hour to sit at it.

This place was solid. Good food, not a terrible wait on a Saturday morning (30-45min) and quick service. It's not a show-stopper in terms of trendy food BUT the classics are there... and that's all I really care about when I'm struggling Saturday morning.
