Little Market Brasserie
10 East Delaware Place, Chicago
Brunch Saturday and Sunday 6:30 a.m.-3:30
I like the way Pastry Chef Grace Donaghy of Little
Market Brasserie thinks: there's nothing wrong with a little
dessert with Saturday and Sunday breakfast or brunch.
And my 5-year-old twins agreed as our family shared
two gigantic orders of that day's delicacy: freshly made yeast
doughnuts with a coffee crème anglaise and blueberry vanilla
Each order came with three generously sized
doughnuts sprinkled with sugar and deliciously warm straight from
The sweet treat changes on Chef Grace's creative
whim. Features could include skillet cinnamon rolls smothered in
vanilla bean icing and banana nutmeg bread pudding with
banana-infused caramel and Chantilly cream. Grace's Sweet Sin
dishes are $8 each and well worth every penny.
For those not fond of dessert for brunch (c'mon
live a little!) there are tons of brunch options, ranging from
breakfast staples like a perfectly done French Toast served with
berries, syrup and vanilla cream to a sandwich straight from
heaven: a grilled cheese with fried egg, cheddar, bacon, avocado
and Sriracha sauce.
House specialties include buttermilk biscuits and
gravy accompanied by sausage and a fried egg ($12.50) and smoked
salmon with crispy potato hash browns, cream cheese, capers, red
onion and mixed greens for $14.50.
Another bonus: In this swanky part of town, the
people-watching is almost as good as the food.
