Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe: Breakfast and Lunch in a Flash

April 23, 2014 11:02 am

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.

Love Antiques? Stream These PBS Shows Online!

April 16, 2014 11:01 am

Do you love all things retro or antique? Are you an avid collector who loves exploring old houses and refurbishing outdated furniture? If you’re interested in antiquing or remodeling, PBS offers great programming focused on each of those areas. The network’s website now offers two of these popular programs online completely for free.

This Old House
One of the original home improvement shows, This Old House features one whole-house renovation over several different episodes. Follow the likeable host and crew members as they gut an old house, then rebuild it into a fully functional version of its original glory. If you want to learn about remodeling your own home, the show’s Ask This Old House segment, a shorter version of the original show, teaches viewers carpentry tricks and answers questions from viewers.

Antiques Roadshow
This incredibly popular program is beloved by history buffs and home decor enthusiasts alike. Each episode features a group of antique appraisers at trade shows, as well as hopeful antique owners who wait anxiously as the experts reveal the story behind their most precious belongings. Some of the items are worth big bucks, but other folks find that their priceless treasures are actually fairly worthless.
