We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Chicago’s Brunch Takeout & Delivery Guide

Just because you’re quarantined doesn’t mean you can’t have brunch.

There’s a good chance your life used to involve weekend brunch. Maybe one with bottomless mimosas, or sugary french toasts that could have been engineered by an eight-year-old. But just because we’re in the middle of quarantine doesn’t mean you can’t have eggs benedict, pancakes, or a grain bowl to give you the necessary energy to clean your apartment with a Q-Tip for the third time this week. Plenty of restaurants across the city offer brunch for takeout and delivery. Some even serve it seven days a week, because no one even knows (or cares) what day it is anymore, anyway.

All restaurants featured on The Infatuation are selected by our editorial team. Chicago’s Brunch Takeout & Delivery Guide is presented by Uber Eats. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, supporting our local restaurant community has never been more important. Uber Eats customers can now give directly to the restaurants they love at checkout. 100% will go to the restaurant. Order now to support. See app for details..

The spots

Wherewithall

$$$$
$$$$ 3472 N Elston Ave

Almost zero good has come out of the current situation. But if we were forced to come up with something positive to say, here it is: Wherewithall now makes brunch, and it’s available for carryout. The menu changes every week, but you can expect things like housemade pastries, focaccia with iberico ham and egg, and suggested wine pairings - all available for curbside pickup or delivery.

Over Easy Cafe

$$$$
$$$$ 4943 N Damen Ave

The only complaint we’ve had about Over Easy Cafe in Ravenswood is that it takes forever to get a table on the weekend. Well, turns out that’s not a problem we have to worry about anymore. Luckily, they’re offering contactless pickup - just pay online with a credit card. You’ll find dishes like pancakes, benedicts, and specials like the tiramisu french toast (with espresso mascarpone and rum caramel sauce.)

All Together Now

$$$$ 2119 W Chicago Ave

Seems like everywhere we look this cafe and wine shop is doing something cool during the restaurant shutdown. And on the weekends, they’re offering hand-rolled bagels. They have plain and everything, along with plain and scallion cream cheese too. And if you want, you can also get yours with trout spread, which is smoky and delicious.

Happy Camper

$$$$
AmericanBar FoodPizza  in  Old Town
$$$$ 1209 N Wells St

This pizza spot offers brunch for delivery and carryout, seven days a week. You can get a breakfast pizza with eggs, bacon, and cheese, breakfast tacos or sandwiches, and they even have Bloody Mary kits. They also have a pizza and prosecco deal, if you want to make mimosas.

Order delivery

Beatrix

$$$$ 671 N St. Clair

The Streeterville location of Beatrix is offering a $30 brunch meal for two. It includes eggs, brown sugar bacon, toast, lemon ricotta pancakes, coffee, and orange juice. It’s pickup only, and you have to order it by 8pm the night before.

Sandy Noto

Summer House Santa Monica

$$$$ 1954 N Halsted St

Summer House has a few options for weekend brunch. You can order egg sandwiches and breakfast burritos, or opt for one of the family-style meals. The full breakfast feeds four, and includes eggs, bacon or sausage, potatoes, and english muffins. Or there’s the pancake party that comes with a dozen pancakes, berries, sprinkles, chocolate chips, whipped cream, and maple syrup.

Order delivery

Funkenhausen

$$$$
German  in  West Town
$$$$ 1709 W Chicago Ave

This German-inspired spot offers brunch Fri-Sun for carryout and delivery. You can get dishes like breakfast sandwiches, an al pastor burrito, and most importantly - spaetzle carbonara made with bacon, peas, and parmesan.

Left Coast Food & Juice

$$$$
$$$$ 2878 N Lincoln Ave

If sitting alone in your apartment with a dozen pancakes doesn’t align with your productivity goals, consider ordering from Left Coast instead. This spot has all sorts of healthy options available for takeout and delivery - like acai and grain bowls, tofu wraps, and fresh-pressed juices. So, if the last “vitamin” you had was the CBD you’ve been adding to everything, get food from here.

Christina Slaton

Baker Miller

$$$$ 4655 N Lincoln Ave

This is the type of bakery that makes everything from scratch, including toast and jam, biscuit sandwiches, cinnamon rolls, and other baked goods. Their weekend menu changes, but whatever they have will be delicious. Available for carryout and delivery.

Bryn Mawr Breakfast Club

$$$$
$$$$ 3348 W Bryn Mawr Ave

If you’re familiar with M Henry in Andersonville, you’ll recognize much of the food at Bryn Mawr Breakfast Club in North Park. The food here is very similar - with tasty things like bread pudding french toast and salmon benedict. Available for pickup and delivery.

MingHin Cuisine

$$$$ 2168 S. Archer Ave.

Minghin is our favorite dim sum spot in Chicago, and the Chinatown location has its full menu available for delivery. So, order everything, put it on your bar cart, and roll it around your living room. Ta da, you’re at brunch.

Sandy Noto

D Cuisine

$$$$
$$$$ 2723 N Clark St

This is another one of our favorite spots for dim sum. And while the menu at D Cuisine is pretty short, what they do have is delicious. You’ll find excellent pork buns, smooth and creamy steamed egg buns, shrimp dumplings, and sesame balls that are crispy on the outside and perfectly chewy inside. It’s all available for takeout and delivery.

Manny's Cafeteria & Delicatessen

$$$$
Deli  in  South Loop
$$$$ 1141 S. Jefferson St.

This classic deli is open seven days a week starting at 7am. And you can order pretty much anything you’d want for breakfast - from eggs to pancakes to cereal to fried matzah. Have it delivered, or go pick it up.

Mellow Yellow Restaurant

$$$$ 1508 E 53rd St

Picture a classic breakfast spot - the kind that has a laminated menu full of pancakes, skillets, hash browns, and omelets. That’s Mellow Yellow, a Hyde Park staple that’s been around since 1976. They’re offering delivery and carryout, so you can turn your living room into an all-day diner. Except you’re responsible for making your own bottomless coffee.

Order delivery

Healthy Substance

$$$$
$$$$ 6852 W. Archer Ave

Good news if you’re vegan and like Mexican food - Healthy Substance is offering carryout and delivery. Everything here is made in-house, from meat substitutes in things like the chorizo breakfast burrito, to the “eggs” and tortillas in the chilaquiles. Don’t forget to order a vegan pastry too.

Tiztal Cafe

$$$$
$$$$ 4631 N Clark St

There are other things on the menu at Tiztal in Uptown, but you really just need to order their fantastic chilaquiles - made with fresh chips, chihuahua cheese, and a delicious green salsa. Available for pickup and delivery.

Order delivery

River Valley Farmer's Table

$$$$
$$$$ 1820 W Wilson Ave

We’re at a point where we’d much rather be doing our grocery shopping at a specialty store like River Valley than going into the Mad Max-esque wasteland that is Jewel. So while you’re browsing online for whole bean coffee and tiny jars of jam, go ahead and order some prepared food for brunch. This spot has freshly-baked muffins, burritos, and breakfast sandwiches - and everything is available for curbside pickup and delivery.

Batter & Berries

$$$$
$$$$ 2748 N Lincoln Ave

The specialty at Batter and Berries in Lincoln Park is french toast - specifically the flights, which come with four different kinds (like strawberry or lemon) and vary each weekend. They also have specials (like peach cobbler) and offer collaborations with other spots, like Shawn Michelle’s in Bronzeville. Available for curbside pickup and delivery.

Order delivery

Guess what you should order at Chicken And Waffles? Yes, the chicken and waffles, which is available for curbside pickup and delivery. Choose from dark or light meat, or a combination of both. And if chicken isn’t your thing, you can also opt for catfish and waffles, but combining fish with maple syrup is still pending FDA approval.

Order delivery

Egg-O-Holic

$$$$ 833 W Chicago Ave

As the not-very-subtle name indicates, this Indian spot focuses on eggs. This means the menu is full of dishes like hard-boiled eggs with chana masala, egg bhurji, and roti filled with masali eggs and cheese. They’re open all day and available for pickup and/or delivery.

Order delivery

Honeybear Cafe

$$$$ 7036 N Clark St

This fantastic breakfast spot in Rogers Park had the terrible luck of opening right before restaurants closed for dine-in service. But it’s still going strong, making delicious food that’s available for takeout and delivery. You can expect things like waffle sandwiches, apple butter pancakes, and biscuits and gravy.
