When it comes to deciding where to go to brunch, we all could use a little help. First of all, you’re probably not in the shape to be deciding much of anything on those hungover mornings, and second, the sheer number of restaurants in this city makes it difficult to pick a spot for some weekend indulgence/recovery. Luckily, brunch has become such a part of our culture that one of Chicago’s best restaurants is guaranteed to be serving Benedicts and Bloodys in your neighborhood. We’ve handpicked the best of those for you, so you can pretty much just roll out of bed — no debating, deciding, or traveling required.

Better-for-you fare meets an irresistible pastry case

At Beatrix you don’t need to compromise flavor for healthy eats. Choose from a selection of flavorful brunch dishes like the quinoa cakes with poached eggs served with tomato-basil sauce, poached egg mayo and herbs, or cauliflower grits & eggs with fried eggs, crispy Brussels sprouts, and Parmesan. A trip to Beatrix is not complete without paying a visit to the pastry case where you can pick up a cinnamon bun, coffee cake, or Beatrix’s outrageously decadent Oh My! Caramel Pie.
