    Form a happy “taste memories” at Ina’s, which has served up brunch for over 20 years. Enjoy the Vegetable Hash and Heavenly Hots signatures. Gluten-free options are available and parking is free.

    This place isn't pretentious but has great food and excellent service. My eggs were perfect (which is rare) and the food was super fresh and well conceived. Blood orange juice is good but $4.

    the heavenly hots!! uberlight and creamy pancakes—made from eggs, sour cream, flour and potato starch. The hotcakes are served with a peach, raspberry and blueberry compote

    Everything is wonderful here. I've been going to her restaurant for years, way back when she was on Bissel. I wish her lots of luck but Dec 31st it will be a sad loss.

    People love having a meal in a quiet environment. You can text, email and work on laptop, but we keep all dining areas off limits for cell phone ringing and conversations.

    Be sure to grab brunch at Ina's on the weekends. Her gingerbread pancakes with lemon cream sauce (to die for) are only available weekends!

    Ina is considered the #breakfast queen of Chicago. The best spot in the city. And Ina has heart for all she feeds. One Wednesday a month she does #gluten-free fried chicken dinner! Read more

    Decent food, Intelligentsia coffee but awful decor, scummy carpets and bad service. Charged us a "table minimum" even tho the place was empty. $20 for 3 coffees and a yogurt.
