Out & About: Chicago

If you're going to venture out of your own kitchen this weekend, mix it up by going for brunch instead of dinner. Time Out Chicago has some great kid-friendly suggestions that we just had to share - dig in!

Shaw’s Crab House (21 E Hubbard St, 312-527-2722)

You won’t be able to pull your kids away from the waffle bar and mounds of maple-smoked bacon at this Sunday buffet—where 12-and-unders eat free with a paying adult—until they get a load of the sweets table, stacked with housemade desserts, lollipops and poufs of cotton candy.

Angel Food Bakery (1636 W Montrose Ave, 773-728-1512)

Maybe dishes like smoked trout focaccia and creamed wild mushrooms sound a little adult for a kid-friendly brunch. But don’t worry—this retro café also makes awesome egg-in-a-hole entrees and housemade “airstreams” (its take on Twinkies) to balance it all out.

Nana (3267 S Halsted St, 312-929-2486)

The fact that much of the food here is organic is one good reason to visit. The spiced apple crêpes, corn-oat waffles and baked chilaquiles are three others.

If you try one, let us know what you think!

Get all the scoop.
