    I got the pork belly Benedict which was very good. I also wanted to try their pancakes, but didn't want a whole other entree, so I asked if I could get a short stack of their coco crunch pancakes.

    Service got worse, and food became horrible. No longer the Kanela it used be... Someone take my Mayorship over, please.

    Great coffee. It's definitely a place for a foodie breakfast- nice combinations of flavors etc..- and not for someone watching their waistline. Lol

    Eggs benedict using pork belly instead of Canadian bacon, and included shredded brussel sprouts and dried cranberry. Very good, but could use more hollandaise and less brussel sprout. :-)

    Perhaps your best bet at this breakfast spot is to skip breakfast altogether, and go for the lamb burger. Read more

    Fresh juice. Red velvet french toast. Chorizo wrap. Amazeballs. Split it all with a friend. Sit at the bar and chat up the bartenders about their hangovers.

    Don't eat here. Hair in our food...our food was given to someone else. Then they picked up out food from the other table put on another plate and served it to me. Sweat during our entire meal. Enjoy!

    Duck confit hash is delicious! Julius Meinl coffee gets you going in the morning as well. Bustling place at 11:00 a.m. - come earlier if you like quiet. Later for lively crowd.

    Western omelette is a western omelette- potatos are a little too salted for my liking. But the red velvet French toast is the MOST DELICIOUS THING IN THE WORLD.

    The Greek accents add just enough surprise to fully wake you up; the signature loukoumáthes (fritters with lemon–honey syrup) & the pork belly benedict make for a Mykonos–on–Lake Michigan effect.
