Experts agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why not have it twice? If you don’t want to cook it yourself (who can blame you?), there are plenty of restaurants that’ll cater to your breakfast craving in the evening.
A bonus if you opt for breakfast for dinner: typically, even the pickiest children will eat pancakes and French toast. Here are some of our favorite Chicago restaurants who also serve breakfast classics at the later hours.
- Address: 1112 S. Wabash Ave., Chicago
Serving breakfast all day, this casual family restaurant offers quite the selection. You’ll find eggs, bagels (with lox), French toast and more. Or you can go with one of their classic sandwiches!
- Address: 517 N. Halsted St., Chicago
A charming European-inspired cafe nestled in River West, just steps from the Blue Line Grand stop, you’ll find a variety of signature breakfast items. Iguana is best known for its crepes, which can be served up with a healthy (wheat or gluten-free) spin.
- Address: 820 W. Randolph St., Chicago
The brainchild of the first female Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard, Little Goat is a staple on Randolph street in the West Loop. From hearty dishes like Smoked Corn Beef Hash to the to-die for Ooey-Gooey Cinnabun, Little Goat will leave you stuffed and wanting more.
- Address: 6 E. Chestnut St., Chicago
Tempo Cafe is the perfect combination of a standard diner and quaint eatery. It can be argued that no one does eggs better than Tempo, which features them in so many variations. Choose from a fluffy 5-Egg Omelet, Eggs Florentine, Eggs Benedict, an Egg Scrambler and more.
- Address: 1260 N. Dearborn St., Chicago
The oldest café in the Gold Coast, 3rd Coast doesn’t necessarily have any bells and whistles, but what makes them special is the fact that their breakfast is delicious. Enjoy staple dishes (omelets, scones) or opt for something you can’t get elsewhere like a Norwegian Lox and Bagel Plate, Coconut Oatmeal, or House Roasted Granola.
