From blueberry breakfast bites to tasty blueberry treats, here are four berry best, family-friendly blueberry must-haves and must-dos to indulge summertime’s most palatable fruit.

Wildberry Cafe

Start your family’s summer day at Wildberry Cafe with a scrumptious blueberry danish. This specialty pancake has cream filling, blueberries, almond streusel, cream cheese frosting and blueberry anglaise that will be sure to energize the whole family. Sit outdoors at Prudential Plaza overlooking the skyline, or visit other locations including Water Tower, Libertyville and Schaumburg. Arrive early with bellies ready as reservations are not accepted at some locations and on certain days.

Do-Rite Donuts do blueberries right with its famous blueberry crumb cake doughnut. Dubbed as a game changer, this breakfast — or dessert, depending on what time of day it is — will surely satisfy your blueberry cravings. Chef-Partner and recipe creator, Francis Brennan, mixed the perfect ingredients together: blueberry jam-filled cake doughnut, tossed in blueberry crumb streusel. And Do-Rite Donuts has several locations with outdoor seating throughout the Chicagoland area, including Tinley Park, where there is a convenient drive thru.

Tammen Treeberry Farm

From July to mid-August, the farm provides lined buckets for you and the kids to handpick. The best part? There’s no cover charge, the parking is free and you only pay for the weight of blueberries picked. The farm provides a picnic area and a little play zone for the kids, too.
