    Sometimes you need a reminder of why brunch steeped in simplicity is a good thing. Their Eggs Duncan is a satisfying take on the classic benedict with a healthy serving of greens and two poached eggs. Read more

    I enjoyed the sauce a lot, and liked that there was a lot of it. The english muffins were the thick, classic style and I wanted to the lather the sauce on every bite.

    The devious minds behind this brunch spot think they can throw perfect poached eggs on top of crispy poutine and call it breakfast? They could call it dessert and I’d still eat it any time of the day. Read more

    The tomatoes on the grilled cheese are "cured" before between served with Wisconsin cheddar, smoked gouda, and provolone. The roasted flavor helps tie the sandwich with the tomato fennel soup.

    This sunny cafe boasts a great selection of comfort food entrees, plus dishes more refined than you'd expect at your usual late night eatery, such as beef cheeks and Peruvian bay scallops. Read more

    From the breakfast “mashbrown” (a genius combination of mashed potatoes and hash browns) to the crisp and juicy half-chicken with roasted garlic for dinner, the new food is simple and satisfying. Read more

    This casually hip storefront offers plenty to chomp on, notably a delectable roast chicken, which may be partnered with Swiss chard and diced Yukon Golds or perhaps lentils and Brussels sprouts. Read more

    Just keep saying Poutine until they put it in front of you. There's a Bite blend of Dark Matter coffee that is delicious too.

    Open from brunch until dinner, Bite even offers some after-hours nourishment in the form of veggie burgers and falafel sandwiches—great for soaking up those extra beers after midnight.

    The pulled pork sandwich could be served at any bbq restaurant in the country. So well-spiced and flavorful. The pork hash is also a beautiful dish.

    You can't miss with their brunch menu, go pork hash if it's your first visit. BYOB, but you grab drinks from the Empty Bottle too.

    Try the mashbrown from our 100 Best list: The search for the perfect hash browns ends at Bite, where a patty of skin-on potato mash is always fried to a golden crisp.

    BYOB and I've never eaten something here I didn't like. The bi bim bop is my favorite, and their biscuits with jam are amazing.

    Fish Friday is a treat. The stroganoff is a must for beef eaters. The lemon pound cake is the perfect ending.

    The best lunch item has to be the burger! And for $10 it's totally worth every penny.

    This place USED TO BE great. Now it's become a pretentious, line at the door, for the new Wicker Parkers.. Old BITE ruled, new BITE blows.
