Help! Brunch in/near Rogers Park
My parents are in town for this weekend and, after Mass ends at 1 p.m. today, they want to grab breakfast/brunch somewhere in the area. Can a Chowhound suggest some places that might work for us? Thank you!
Morseland on Morse just west off Sheridan is good. Nice quiet atmosphere, great coffee (plus full bar), and decent to very good food (depending on what you pick).
UncommonGround just opened a new location on Devon, (1401 west). The menu looks great:
If you're willing to go farther south (5707 n. Clark), there's M. Henry, which also has a nice brunch menu (though they close the cafe at 3 on Sundays, so that might not leave you much time.): http://mhenry.net/menu.html#brunch
Personally, I'd stay away from Leonas, which has always underwhelmed me. (Same goes for the Heartland, which never has understood the concept of seasoning.)
I find these answers interesting. I left Chicago over 17 years ago and just heard that the Heartland is still opened. I never understood it's appeal even back then.
I also note that the OP was eating last Sunday--it's a little late for recommendations now--but the info is interesting.
