Sundays are a time for friends and brunch. My friends and I try to go to brunch at least twice a month. It’s a great way to catch up on everyone’s lives—not to mention the gossip! We always try to go somewhere new each time.
So far, we’ve been to 10 places that offer brunch. Here are my top three brunch places in Chicago.
1. South Port and Irving (SIP) $$
The official name of this restaurant is South Port and Irving, where it’s located, but everyone calls it SIP.
The best part about brunch here is that they offer bottomless mimosas and bloody mary’s. You can either switch back and forth for $18* or stick with one choice for $15*.
My favorite dish is a tie between the All American and the Chicken and Waffles.
The restaurant also offers Late Night Brunch.
2. The Bristol $$
The Bristol is located in Bucktown and has a rustic but classy feel. On Saturdays it offers the local running club a 20% discount on their meal.
My friend ordered the Popcorn Crunch Raspberry Doughnuts for the table to try and they were delicious. Unfortunately there were four of us and only three doughnuts. It was a Battle Royale for the last bite.
The Bristol doesn’t have a huge list of brunch items. They have eight items listed for brunch. I’m the type of person who doesn’t want to order the same thing as someone else (because I want a small bite of everyone’s food).
I ended up ordering the Chicken ‘N A Biscuit—I’m a southerner I kinda had to get it. The description says it comes with sausage gravy and bread & butter pickles. I didn’t see any sausage or taste it in the gravy but the pickle combo was AMAZING!
3. Ann Sathers $
I’m lucky that an Ann Sathers opened up a few blocks from me last year. The Hostess there knows my friend and I by name. It’s our go to place when we aren’t feeling well enough to travel via CTA to another brunch place.
Ann Sathers is technically a Swedish restaurant and has a location off of the Granville L stop and the Belmont L stop.
My favorite thing to get there is either the biscuits and gravy or a build it yourself omelette.
You have to be careful though creating your own omelette cause each ingredient can cost you some cash.
Another thing I love about Ann Sathers is that as soon as they notice your coffee getting low, they refill it. Which is a huge plus for a coffee addict like myself. Lol.
I hope that you found this blog post helpful. Comment with your favorite brunch place and I’ll drag my friends there to try it and write about it. If I choose your favorite brunch place, you’ll get a special shout out!
