5 Loaves Eatery is a casual breakfast spot on the South Side specializing in Southern and soul food. You can get delicious dishes like fried chicken with pancakes or waffles, fluffy omelets with grits, and things that you could make yourself (like a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on toast), but won’t involve cleaning bacon splatter off your stove. 5 Loaves is small and can get crowded, but the friendly service and great food will make the wait worth it.
