Breakfast-and-lunch spot offering specialty omelets and five different kinds of hash browns, plus other brunch standards and a few sandwiches.

Our Review

Owner Ron Ruffolo says he went to "every breakfast house in Chicago" before settling on his restaurant's name and signature dish: hash browns in five varieties, among them sweet potato, red potato with rosemary, and gussied-up versions of the traditional Idaho spud. Other breakfast options include waffles and hearty banana-wheat pancakes. But it's the omelets, named for a street or neighborhood (the Maxwell Street, the Taylor Street, the North Sider) that most reflect Ruffolo's scouring of the city; one, a six-egg behemoth called the City of Chicago, incorporates 14 ingredients, 6 of them meats. Expect big portions down to the toast.
