What's not to love about brunch? If bacon-encrusted Gouda mac-and-cheese, banana bread French toast and a stocked coffee bar doesn't get you excited, you might have to check for a pulse.
The only two words you need to know: BACON FLIGHT.
Bacon flight: 5 kinds of bacon
Get the bacon waffle, complete with bacon rum batter and bacon garnish. Get the flight of bacon as a starter. Don't like bacon? Go to a lesser place and contemplate your failed life.
I don't even like bacon and this place is still awesome!
Intelligentsia coffee is available on a to-go basis by walking up to the counter on the north end. Much better and cheaper than Starbucks down the street.
The Bacon Waffles are delicious!
Southern Comfort Bowl was mind blowing!
Love bacon? Then you have no excuse. Get the bacon flight for a taste of 6 different types. No frills, just 6 pieces of bacon. BLT is solid as well and comes with eggs cooked how you want it.
Try to get here before gymboree lets out- screaming baby city!
Get a milk bottle carafe of OJ to go w/ your BYOB Champagne!
Get the b'fast burrito, split the flight of Bacon and wash down with Intelligensia java
Flight. Of. Bacon.
Ask Dan, the waiter, to feed you the pumpkin muffin.
Great brunch place with a "make your own" Intelligentsia coffee station!
The best espresso machaito I've had in Chicago. He grinds the beans for ea individual cup of coffee. Outstanding.
The whole wheat granola pancakes are awesome - get the chicken apple sausage as a side! So good.
Get the cheese grits! Let it sit a bit so it can thicken up - delicious!
Order the sun-dried tomato and goat cheese frittata. Wear a Wisconsin shirts and you might get some free food.
Great cappuccino to go.
Breakfast burrito is savory and chock full of good veggies.
Lovely French toast is the best thing ever
Buttermilk pancakes and home potatoes are delicious. Make sure you get cheese on your potatoes.
Jalepeno bacon. Need I say more?
Unremarkable menu. The waiter talking to the next table about the scars from prior tattoos was off putting. Sound travels well here. I could hear entire conversations from tables 40 feet away.
It's bigger on the inside.
They have a FLIGHT OF BACON!!! And they serve Intelligentsia! This place is just full of win.
Try the bacon flight. 3 of the 5 have a great flavor: the other 2 taste like bacon.
bacon chocolate chip cookies.
Get a cup of coffee when you first walk in. It makes the invariably long wait so pleasant
They sell half priced naked goods on Fridays!
Don't come on Thursday's unless you enjoy screaming toddler's. Kids eat free Thursday's.
Best grits in town!
O-M-G, Be prepared 1) to wait, but it is worth it and 2) a food coma after you had a piece of food heaven. Do the Bacon Flight and Do the Lovely French Toast.
Anything they serve involving bacon (the flight, the waffle) is delicious. But the hostess girl is a snot.
They have certain dishes only available for weekend brunch.
Coffee in the holding pen.
Try the oatmeal latte! The veggie frittata left much to be desired unfortunately
The bacon pancakes are excellent
Really amazing brunch, but they don't have any alcohol. Amazing coffee and lattes
Choose the house potatoes instead of the fruit, you will not regret it!
Delicious lovely French toast!
Whole wheat granola pancakes with fruit compote. Do it.
Great food. Long waits. Very loud inside. Recommended at off peak times.
