Seasoned catering and baking company Work of Art has moved its operations—and opened a daytime café—to this new location, which, no joke, is perhaps the loveliest breakfast spot in Chicago. As sunlight pours through the windows, you’ll dig into tender whole wheat–carrot pancakes, hearty omelettes and tall glasses of cool melon-ginger juice. All that may fill you up, but if there’s one rule at Kingsbury, it’s to never leave empty-handed: Pick up seasonal baked goods from the pastry case on the way out, especially the pumpkin whoopie pies, which kick cupcakes to the curb.

For breakfast: Great place for creating your own omelet and the lemon pancakes are delicious. If you're going savory and want to start with something sweet, ask for a blueberry muffin warmed with butter- it hits the spot! The Vietnamese coffee is a treat. For lunch: the Asian claypot with chicken is so yummy. Side note: their flower arrangements on the bar are always so lovely. The vibe is relaxed, open and airy.  

I love this light and airy breakfast place! They have a solid Bloody Mary and the pancakes are heaven.
