    Mimosas are a steal at $4 and many vegetarian options. They lose points for dirty tables/glasses though and slow service.

    The perfect place in Wrigley for a mental pick-me-up whether it's a boost of caffeine with their latte infused Bailey's or a solid breakfast after a night on the town.

    BBQ chicken pizzadillas and buffalo chicken wraps are some of the best dishes for a place that totes to be vegetarian and vegan friendly.The only issue I have is their recent change to drop the Crêpes

    I'll go here at all hours of the day -- as long as it's open. Favorites include the GOAT, chicken on the barbie, peanut butter chocolate shake, gnocchi, the pizzadillas and anything with goat cheese.

    Open around the clock on weekends and until 3 a.m. on weekdays, this cute café serves breakfast all day, plus sammitches (sandwiches classic and signature) and pizzadillas (a pizza-quesadilla hybrid). Read more

    They should make their items order-able from a smart phone by adding them to the app "appay biz". That way, I can order ahead using "appay"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    An oasis in the middle of Wrigleyville from the Wrigleyville crowd. Awesome, huge espresso drinks (with booze!), spicy cheese fries, and vegan options galore. Great while sober-- er, for brunch-- too!

    Homemade jalapeño poppers are spicy, but quite tasty. And get the pasta salad as your side - yum!
