Branch out and try some of these new brunch spots around town

Summer House Santa Monica serves delicious dishes such as candied bacon and orange-chocolate chip pancakes.

Chicagoans are a brunch kind of people. They’ve got a lock on that singular weekend meal, when you can have pancakes with your Reuben, and it’s okay to drink before noon. While everyone has their favorite spots to enjoy their Bloody Marys and eggs benedict, it can be nice to branch out once in a while. Consider these restaurants for your next brunch reservation.

Summer House Santa Monica
This slice of California is a welcome respite from the snowy Chicago winter. Just opened in November, Summer House provides an open and bright dining room that transports you to a sunny beach house. The menu covers a wide range of breakfast and lunch options, with dishes that are flavorful, but balanced. Try the Hot Mess of Fries if you’re craving savory; a sweet tooth will love the orange chocolate chip pancakes. Housemade English muffins are a must.

Bub City
This fun and frisky BBQ joint has just joined the brunch game, and they’re not holding back. Start with a visit to the Bloody Mary bar, where a wide selection of liquors, mixers, and garnishes provide you the opportunity to create a completely customized cocktail. Order the sticky cinnamon buns, but make sure you have someone to share them with; you’ll be tempted to finish them all off on your own. Hashbrowns with savory toppings, breakfast sandwiches, and fried chicken will definitely fill you up.

Forgo the usual American fare and give brunch an Italian twist at Azzurra EnoTavola. One of their many cocktails makes a great start; go for a seasonal Bellini or the El Gallo with sweet white vermouth, orange juice, and a Belgian Tripel. Breakfast items include polenta griddle cakes and “Italian Toast,” a clever turn on a favorite. If you’re leaning more towards lunch, indulge in a spaghetti carbonara with guanciale and pecorino.

Where to Eat Brunch in Chicago Right Now, May 2021

Brunch, not quite breakfast nor lunch, is one of the best parts of the weekend — even during a pandemic. The Eater Chicago Brunch Heatmap is here to help by highlighting the newest options for a delicious midday meal.

The latest additions to the map below include one of the year’s biggest openings, Apolonia, Mexican eatery Taquizo, and freshly relocated deli Steingold’s. They join a growing number of places that are focused on creating exciting brunch menus. So start the day off right with eggs (and much more) at these 16 destinations.

As of April 29, Chicago restaurants are permitted to serve customers indoors with a 50 percent maximum capacity per room, or 100 people — whichever is fewer. Regardless, the state requires reservations for both indoor and outdoor dining. However, this should not be taken as an endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 dashboard. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.


The following foods are often served for brunch.

    [5][6][7] – in New York City, the "bagel brunch" was popular circa 1900. [8] The bagel brunch consists of a bagel topped with lox, cream cheese, capers, tomato and red onion. [8][9][10][11]
  • Bread and toast with butter and jams
  • Brunch casserole – a simple casserole prepared with bread, eggs and bacon [12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][10] dishes
    • [42][43]

    2. The Superdawg – Superdawg

    3. Bing Bread – Parachute

    11. Chicago Mix Popcorn – Garrett Popcorn

    The incredible mix of cheddar cheese and caramel popcorn might no longer be called the ‘Chicago Mix’ (it’s officially the Garrett Popcorn Mix) but that doesn’t stop everyone from saying the original name. The sweet and savoury bites are a must-try.

    14. Jackhammer – Andy’s Frozen Custard

    Andy’s Frozen Custard is a must-try Midwest staple, and no visit to Chicago is complete without one. Creamier than regular ice cream, frozen custard contains more butterfat and there’s plenty of flavours to try here. The Jackhammer is the best: choose your flavour and they’ll fill the middle of it with a topping of your choice.

    15. Shrimp de Jonghe – Hugo’s Frog Bar & Fish House
