It is no secret that I love breakfast more than most things on earth. During our trip to Chicago, the boyfriend let me pick our adventure for our last morning in town before we had to head home, so naturally I turned to Trip Advisor and found a raved about breakfast spot! What I found was Kanela Breakfast Club, which with our luck was walking distance from our hotel!
The restaurant is small, maybe 25 tables, so it was no surprise
that there was a wait, even on a Monday morning (don’t you people have work to get to?). The hostess texted us within 20 minutes telling us our table was ready, and we were seated and given coffee, while perusing the menu and checking out all of the delicious looking food and drinks of the near by tables.
The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch, and has a full bar if your looking for a bloody marry or mimosa to accompany your breakfast. We started with coffee which trying to decide what to order… this was no easy task since everything looked and smelled SO good!
Eventually I decided on the french toast sampler and the boyfriend on a vegetable, sausage, egg skillet. Service was fast especially considering how packed the place was! The boyfriend said his breakfast choice was delicious and probably one of the best he’s had in his life… yes I made him rate his top breakfast experiences.
The french toast was unlike anything I’d ever had and was nothing short of heavenly! Each type in the sampler was a different kind of bread made into french toast and topped with its own kind of toppings. Included was banana bread, lemon poppyseed with blueberry, orange lemon, and red velvet with cream cheese and strawberry… have you ever hear of such amazingly fun flavors of french toast? They were all so amazingly delicious and decadent, although if I had to pick a favorite I would choose the orange lemon. It was so different and light, while most of the others were so sweet they were almost like dessert. But who doesn’t love dessert for breakfast?
I will without a doubt be back when I visit Chicago again!
