At this adorable, sunny, daytime-only café, health food is tasty enough to eat. The owners are committed to organics and offer meat-free options, but they’re okay with a little cheese, butter and sugar every now and then. Case in point: thick, dense blueberry pancakes and a heaping breakfast sandwich of fried egg, Gorgonzola, applewood-smoked bacon and fresh thyme. If that’s too good and gooey for you health nuts, there’s always the Vegan Epiphany, an organic tofu scramble that just may live up to its name.

m. henry is a nice little spot up in Edgewater where you can find finely crafted brunch. They make a habit of using seasonal, as well as locally sourced ingredients which is always a huge plus. I got a special which is more than likely not on the menu if you go again, but it was the Peach and Raspberry French Toast. This was not the first time that I went, and you can't really go wrong with their selection. Their serving Metropolis Coffee is a major plus too.

Best breakfast in Chicago, and it's not close. Great Metropolis coffee as well, and the service is the cherry on top.

Yum. Can't beat that in-house baked cranberry/walnut bread. Have it with a tasty sandwich or salad. Good coffee too!

There are no shortage of places for a great brunch in Edgewater/Andersonville but I keep going back to m. henry. It never disappoints!

Hands down my favorite brunch spot in all of Chicago, no contest. I once dined here when someone at a nearby table was celebrating a birthday, and the lady that runs the join came out and did the can can. I kid you not. You don't forget something like that. You also dont forget their food, the bliss cakes, the rotating savory options, ALL of the baked goods that you drool over while you wait. Oh i should mention that you pretty much will always have to wait if you come for weekend brunch - best bet is to treat yourself to a day off during the week and go for brunch on a Wednesday. Bring a bottle of champagne because its BYOB and you will want to spend a good chunk of your morning enjoying brunch in the sunny atmosphere of this adorable spot.

Blackberry Bliss Cakes. That's really the only thing you need to know about the menu here at m. Henry. These pancakes are out of this world and full of flavor. If, however, the savory route is more your style then I recommend the black bean cakes. Tip: the restaurant is BYOB so don't forget a bottle of bubbly to wash down your brunch.
