Time Out says

We could all use a little CBD in our coffee. At Lakeview brunch spot Wake 'n Bacon, you can get the cannabis-derived compound added to just about everything on the menu. With the help of chef Will Silas, husband-and-wife team Gabriel and Sarah Ayala pulled from their respective heritages to build the food lineup, spotlighting dishes from Taiwan, Argentina, El Salvador, the Philippines and beyond. The purple-hued ube pancakes are topped with bacon, fried eggs, breakfast potatoes, pickled peppers, cheddar and spicy maple syrup. Craving something sweet? The peach crumble crepes are stuffed with vanilla-lemon cream cheese and covered in stone fruit and granola.

Every dish can be upgraded with a dose of cannabidiol from Chicago-based company Half Day CBD. For the unfamiliar, CBD doesn't have psychoactive properties, so you're not going to get high from an order of flapjacks. Though there are still plenty of unknowns about the plant extract, most distributors claim that it can help ease anxiety, stress and insomnia. Did we mention that you can get it added to any drink on the menu, too? Wake 'n Bake is a one way ticket to Chill Town.
