New breakfast spots | Restaurant reviews
Breakfast is the new dinner. If you didn't know that, time to wake up.
This is the moment when I should start listing the breakfast places I’m recommending, but what those of you who haven’t been to Kingsbury Street Cafe (1523 N Kingsbury St, 312-280-1718) won’t understand is how difficult it is for me to do so. I cannot, I will not, let Kingsbury get overrun with trendsters. Not yet. It’s too new, it’s too lovely, and that kuchen, that melon juice, those pancakes—yes, I’m still talking about that same stack of carrot-whole-wheat pancakes—are too special to be picked at by a snooty foodinista who will only go on Yelp to complain about how she wished they had been sweeter. Sweeter! Get a grip, lady. In the pantheon of this city’s breakfast spots, there is nothing sweeter than Kingsbury Street Cafe. To eat here is not only to swim in a pool of sunlight, but to grab some of that sunlight and take a bite.
