BRUNCH! Millennials have become obsessed with it and I, being a millennial, have had my fair share of awesome brunches. However, today I want to talk about one in particular. Recently I had the pleasure of experiencing brunch at Pick Me Up Cafe :)
To be honest, as we pulled up to the front of the restaurant, I told my friend that without her suggestion that I probably would never walk in this place. From the outside it just doesn't look like much. Like you would have no idea that they are home to the famous Pizzadillas or that they have vegan milkshakes or that they have killer coffee or that they have the friendliest servers in Chicago!
Seriously it's amazing once you walk inside! With the brunch crowd, space was limited but we got a seat within 10 minutes and they made sure to give us a high-chair for the baby! Coffee was quickly brought to our table (always a good indication of how much I am going to like the place, hehe). We ordered and then got to admire all of the local art on the walls. I ordered the Ham Scram with a bagel and my friend got the Humboldt County (vegan). Both were delicious and we had enough for leftovers! My only complaint is that they didn't have many gluten free options but I'm sure in time they will.
This place is a must-eat if you are anywhere in the Lakeview neighborhood! Best breakfast in the area!
