Happy Sunday!! The Wicker Park area is such an awesome place to be, full of so many unique restaurants and small boutiques. I had been to this part of Chicago a couple of times, so when I found out Kanela Breakfast Club was there I got even MORE excited.
Holy yum!!! I have seen this place on countless blogs and instagram accounts about “Must Have Breakfast Spots in Chicago” so I figured it was about time I went and tried it out. This super relaxed and rustic setting was perfect for a chill Saturday morning. I always struggle with what to order because I am eternally conflicted between sweet and savory. Why can’t I just have both?! My sweet tooth took over and I ultimately went with the Kanela french toast. This was so so delish with a sweet lemon creme and apricot jam. I would totally recommend this meal but I do think I am going to order more on the savory side next time because I am #indecisive!! (maybe the breakfast sandwich??) just to see what that’s like.
I was also super surprised that there was no wait!! We called ahead to see the approximate wait time and they said it doesn’t typically pick up until 11-12 on Saturdays. We got there around 9:45, so while there were definitely still people there, we beat the brunch rush. The food came out quickly and we were done with our meal within an hour so we could go shop around!
Definitely try out this sweet spot in Wicker Park if you are a breakfast junkie like me. For sure the best meal of the day.
