Biscuits and gravy, the ultimate comfort food! We need all the extra carbs and fat we can get to make it through the cold Chicago winters!

Lobster for breakfast. Doesn't get more decadent than that!

Why is it so hard to get a simple dish like steak and eggs right? Most places charge an arm and a leg for greasy, over cooked slices of meat and way too many potatoes. This was definitely one of the better ones I’ve had.

Give me some of that sweet, sweet caffination. Chicago definitely has coffee culture down.

Monkey bread is one of those things I always order if I see it on a menu because I can’t be bothered to make it at home. This one came drenched in toffee sauce and sprinkled with toasted pecans.

Baker Miller does literally everything from scratch. Home made jam, home made sausage, even millions no their own flours!

Crepe cakes are one of the best things in the world. I really wish more bakeries did them, especially ones as good as this blueberry cream cheese dream from Creperie St Germaine in Evanston.

Put an egg on a BLT and you get a BELT! This one features crisped pork belly, fresh from the smoker.

This chilaquiles comes with two different sauces: a tomato based mocajete and a rich mole. I couldn’t decide which I liked better!

Every time I walk into Stan’s Donuts, I have a tortured debate with myself about what to get. Every time I walk out of Stan’s Donuts, I inevitably have a blueberry danish donut in my hand. I can’t quit this mouth watering treat!

Pumpkin spice lattes be damned. Pumpkin Chai is the way to go for me.
Rainy days call for a visit to a bakery for pastries and coffee. The morning buns here might be my new favorite breakfast treat!

The brunch at Wrigley BBQ was so intensely meaty that I think I’m still full a day later. This take on a BLT features their house smoked pork belly.

Philly Cheesesteak Eggrolls. Crispy outside, succulent beefy and cheesy inside, and covered in sweet and spicy sauces. The ultimate bar food!

There’s two things that happen in Chicago in Sunday no matter the weather: Brunch and football. These loaded tater tots are the perfect brunch snack to get you though the first quarter with lots of spicy chorizo and melty pepper jack cheese.

The pancakes at Whisk are always a collection of incredible and creative flavors, like these raspberry Oreo cheesecake pancakes. My favorite this about them is that you can get half orders of them so that you can try all the different kinds in one sitting!

I eat all kinds of crazy and outlandish brunch dishes every week, but sometimes there’s nothing as satisfying as a good plate of pancakes.

How do you make a cinnamon roll even more perfect? Put bacon on it! Or in it. Or around it.

If it wouldn’t be the death of me, I’d have chicken and waffles every day. There is no better sweet and savory combination out there.

From the moment I walked into Chicago Gourmet, I was on the look out for these unicorn donut holes. Taste the magic!

I spent this past weekend at the Taste Talks festival, which is always full of interesting food related panels and demos. We kicked everything off with breakfast items from the Hot Chocolate stand at Revival Food Hall, which included all kind of composed bagel toasts and delightful donuts.
I did not expect a waterfall of blue berries when I cut into this pancake, but now I wish this happened every time I cut into a pancake!
🎢Dooooonuts. I got doooooonuts. 🎢 Don’t tell Homer Simpson, but these actually vegan donuts. And they are pretty darn fantastic.
Alright, I've held out long enough. Time for pumpkin all the things. First up, pumpkin donuts.
Waffles + cherries + Bourbon + bacon + Black pepper = MAGIC

I love chicken and waffles because it can fit almost any flavor profile. Sweet, savory, herby, spicy, you name it. This one is firmly on the savory side with a pork sausage gravy and an herbed waffle.

Pancakes, flapjacks, Johnny cakes, whatever you call them. These ones are literally farm fresh, as this restaurant owns their own farm, where they get all their eggs, meats, and some of the produce. Even the bar was made with wood from the trees on the farm!
I never had grits before I moved to Chicago, but I guess there's enough transplanted Southerns to make them popular here. This version combines lobster and fresh local veggies.

Crispy Brussels sprouts and loaded target tots. This is what brunch looks like when it's a game day, but it's still patio weather.

My brunch today consisted of hundreds or dishes and cocktails from Chicago's finest restaurants. Another successful Chicago Gourmet festival in the books!
The worst part of an eggs Benedict is an overly toasted English muffin. This one is actually using a soft and buttery biscuit as it's base. Sooooo much better!

I'm not excited about it being 80 degrees again, so I'm just going to sit on the patio at Bombo Bar and sip this chocolate hazelnut cooler.

Presenting the Foxy Mama, a collaborative dish from Rhyme or Reason and one of the best pastry chefs in the city. It consists of a churro bun filled with cream cheese, dulce de leche, and brΓ»lΓ©ed bananas. It'll have you dancing in your seat!

Biscuits and gravy are so hard to get right, but when the dish goes together just right, it can be downright magical.

Looks yumm, whats d name of it?
Avocado toast is all well and good, but give me a good egg and cheese toast and I am yours for the taking.
This sports bar just opened up in University Village and they are doing some pretty awesome stuff, like lamb lollipops, Philly cheesesteak egg rolls, and humungous chicken wings doused in your choice of sauces.
I didn't used to be into runny eggs. But now, I dream about them.

This burger is not something you should let your vegetarian friends know you have consumed.
