After a lovely day shopping at the Green City Market, and then staring at the gorillas in the Lincoln Park Zoo, stop by Cafe Brauer Patio for a watermelon margarita and an eggplant entree, all of which used ingredients from the Green City Farmer's Market. You are there for a refreshing beverage, and a snack, but it's really not about the food here, its about the KILLER VIEW. It's hard to get such a perfect spot for people watching as you see families and couples stroll by to or from the zoo, and for one of the best views of the city skyline along a garden horizon. The calamari was lovely, the bloody mary was solid, and the watermelon margarita was perfect for a summer day. I will definitely be bringing my mom here for a ladies afternoon drink, or my girlfriends for a walk and drinks outing!


The patio at Cafe brauer is a perfect outdoor brunch/lunch/dinner place in the warm months of Chicago. As you drink and eat, you can easily view the skyline over the pond. Cafe brauer is dog friendly so bring your pup along too! All of the menus contain a bit of variety so everyone should be able to find something they like. The bloody marys are excellent and could be enjoyed all day. You can't go wrong with a patio or turkey burger. Both come with homemade chips or for a bit more you can pick a different side. If the wait is long for a table, pop over to the zoo while you wait. The Patio at Cafe brauer is a must if you're in Lincoln Park.
