With three locations in the Chicagoland area, Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe consistently draws a crowd through a lengthy menu of breakfast and lunch favorites that feature local and organic ingredients.
The eatery's downtown Chicago location is right by Millennium Park, which makes the restaurant a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. That said, you can expect a wait for a table, especially on weekend mornings when early risers head to Wildberry to greet their day with egg dishes, crepes, decadent pancakes, French toast, and waffles. Thankfully, the service here is speedy and efficient, so you won't have to wait long for a bite of the popular tiramisu pancakes or the creamy Nutella crepes, both recommended by regulars.
On the savory side of things, the breakfast burrito comes stuffed with sausage, peppers, and cheese, while the farm-raised egg dishes are accompanied by toast topped with the restaurant's house-made wild berry preserves. The quality continues through lunch, when a variety of panini, signature sandwiches, and salads are served.
Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Note that the restaurant does not accept reservations on weekends or holidays.
