Bucktown, Chicago, IL
Such an adorable restaurant for our first morning in Chicago. If I were to go to back with my family, my mom and sister would love this place. As pretty and delicate on the inside - dried lavender in mounted vases against the brick and wood walls - as every dish was. I hear they have awesome fried chicken for dinner, but I was super happy we went for brunch.
Hot Chocolate - If the item is in the name of the restaurant, you gotta get it. They have a menu of around ten different kinds, but I got the Medium which is their most popular. Homemade, massive marshmallow cloud floating on the top of a pond of milky chocolate goodness.
Donuts - Cinnamon sugar donut holes that were the size of my fist.
Ham Stratta – Everything in the description sounded divine - smoked cheddar, tomato & herb sauce, egg custard - but was overly wet and eggy for me. Too bad it was better on paper and in pictures (below) than in the mouth.
