The Best Sunday Brunch?

Shaggywillsi Jul 7, 2007 10:31 PM

Hello everyone, I live out in Bucktown and am new to Chicago from NY and would like to know everyone's opinion on the best brunch in the city. I would like to stay within a 5 mile radius of where I'm at, but please offer what you think is the best.

    i far prefer savory to sweet, so all of my brunch picks lean more towards spicysalty than sweetgooey....

      Some really great options right in the 'hood.

      Bin (baby sister of Bin 36) on Milwaukee
      Francesca;s Forno at the Milwaukee/Damen/North corner
      Hot Chocoate on Damen
      Feast on Damen just south of North Ave
      Bongo Room on Milwaukee
      Toast on Damen and Dickens

        Also try Dodo, which is on Damen just S. of Augusta. I think that's Ukrainian village.

            I like Orange. I've only been to the one on Harrison near Printers Row but I know there is one somewhere up north as well, I forget where. You can pick your fruits to make fresh squeezed juice, which is awesome. I also second Flo.
