This has to be a bacon's lovers paradise, I've never seen so many bacon dishes! We had the flight of bacon and while all the bacon was good, we couldn't distinguish between some of them. This is where a true bacon connoisseur may be more apt to write this review. I ordered the southwestern frittata which was great (jalapeno bacon was AWESOME). My girlfriend ordered the bacon pancakes (she also liked them) and my other girlfriend ordered the biscuits and gravy (also good). Their apple cider isn't as good as Wildberry's, but decent. Overall, this place was good but probably better suited for someone who loves bacon. Unfortunately I'm just not a huge bacon fan. Good service, long wait so expect 45 minutes on the weekend at least. I'd come back if I had friends that wanted to go but there are so many other great places in Chicago that this isn't making the top of my list anytime soon.
Our go to brunch spot. We call ahead on walk up so we don't have to wait too long. Their blt is yummy and they do great coffee. My daughter loves their chalk table mats! V v family friendly. Stroller parking inside too.
Worst service. Absolutely terrible. We sat in this stupid place for AN HOUR AND A FUCKING HALF and never got so much as a water from this garbage place. It started bad when a 25 minute quoted wait time turned into an hour wait. Apparently someone stole our table. When we complained and were finally sat, we were shoved into a corner. Considering our already extremely long wait, we should have had someone come up to us immediately and at least apologized. Instead NO ONE EVEN GREETED US. No waters, not even a "be right with you." We were TOTALLY IGNORED. We took a cab to come because we love the food so much. But I'll never go back and I'll make sure no one I know does either.
I've been here several times for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. It is one of my girlfriend's favorite places when we're getting a meal with people from out of town that want some place local. Atmosphere/General I recommend going earlier rather than later. Sunday brunch has been the busiest time so far. Saturday around 10 wasn't too bad-we've been seated in less than 15mins for groups up to 4 people. Sundays, we've waited up to about 25mins for the two of us. They have a separate little coffee/pastry bar that you can get a snack while you wait with coffee that you can drink now and pay for later. My only knock on this place is that it gets pretty loud-I've had a hard time hearing the person sitting across from me unless if they speak in their loudest talking voice. There isn't much on the walls, and most of the surfaces are hard, so there isn't anywhere for the sound to go. I think some thick fabric wall hangings (even a few afghans/throws), or some strategically placed columns would do wonders for that side of things. However, that is my lone knock. Food It is good. Very good. I've had the bacon waffle, biscuits and gravy, and the southern comfort bowl. The Southern Comfort Bowl is my favorite item so far. It is filling and, tastes like breakfast on Grandpa's farm. I love the variety of bacon available. Their menu isn't overly expansive-it's a single page with simple wordings, but what they have, they do extremely well. They thoroughly explore the possibilities around a central theme.
Whoops, I thought this was Bakin' & Eggs, not the Gymboree down the street- What's that? I can't you hear you over the din of kids- this is Bakin' & Eggs and not the Gymboree? No way! Beware Bakin' & Eggs before 9am on a weekend- it's got to be all the talk on the playground, as it's like a free Wiggles Concert in Bucktown- crazy full with the tykes! All kidding aside (heh), our visit to Bakin' & Eggs was very pleasant. Staff is really friendly and service was great! Ordered the bacon flight, because everything's better with bacon! The only problem was I couldn't really tell too much difference between Mesquite, Honey, Jalapeno, Cherry and...umm, the normal one. It's a novelty I can skip on my next visit. The Chilaquiles I ordered was excellent! Got it with two eggs over medium, and the chilaquiles is more of a hash kind of texture, appropriately spicy, and very tasty. The Intelligentsia coffee is a great touch. I envision many pleasant returns- but I do plan on sleeping late next time!
Finally got to try this place on Saturday morning with my mom. Every time I had tried to go in the past, it was packed and my hangover demanded immediate food so I left. But I was completely sober, in a good mood, and there was no line at 9:30 on Saturday morning. So mom and I got to eat some amazing stuff. We ordered the bacon flight (maple pepper, jalapeno, mesquite, honey, cherry smoked) and my favorite ended up being the mesquite even though I love maple. The jalapeno definitely had a kick but it was tasty. My mother then ordered the rosemary biscuit with gravy and a chocolate croissant. I'm not a biscuits and gravy fan but I did think the biscuit was awesome. And the chocolate croissant although a tad too crispy, was devine. I ordered the caramelized onion frittata. If you put eggs, balsamic vinegar, blue cheese, and onions in the same dish, there is absolutely no way I can resist. It also came served with toast and breakfast potatoes. Everything was delicious but it was so much food! So I got to enjoy it twice when I finished it off for lunch the next day. I would definitely recommend this place. The service is quick, the food is delicious, and everyone inside smiles all the time! So fun :)
I went here because I have heard great things and wanted to try the bacon flight. The food was pretty tasty and came out relatively quickly. I was not impressed by the bacon flight. Almost all of the bacon tasted the same, with the exception of a mild spice from the jalapeÃ±o bacon slice. The flight was a little chewy. The interior is a fun Tiffany's blue with a homey feel to it. The service is absolutely horrible. This is 100% of the reason why I will not be returning. There was a small wait when we went, probably due to the slow service. We never received coffee refills. It took us over 15 minutes to get our plates taken away and the check. It was annoying. I would give this place a solid 2.5 stars and keep on walking. It's not worth the wait for full service. Maybe just stop by for a snack at the dessert counter.
I'm not sure why this place doesn't have higher ratings. Food is amazing!! Granted, the wait sucks but the banana bread french toast is definitely worth it!
By far my favorite brunch place in town. JalapeÃ±o bacon... Need I say more? I also love the chilaquiles. Delicious!!
Everything about this place is great except for the smug hipster host and hostess. They are very rude. We had to persuade them to finally give us a table after waiting over an hour (they told us it would b 20min). Very rude. Very poor service on their part. Waiters however were fantastic. And so was the food.
Well, I will say that I came here on a Tuesday morning, so I haven't had to experience the weekend-wait woes. But seriously? If you complain about the place being crowded, you're pretty unreasonable. The place is huge and has many tables. If they're all full, what do you want them to do? Say to other diners "listen, I understand you've only been here 15 or 20 minutes, but I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. A holier-than-thou customer just walked in who's going to give us a 1-2 star review on Yelp if I make them wait." Uhm, okay. If it's full, you go somewhere else or shut up. The establishment can't do anything about that and it isn't their fault, so they shouldn't be receiving a negative review simply for that reason. I'm a vegetarian, and there were....*enough* vegetarian options. Not my haven but my eggs were delicious, and they offer their amazing Chicago Intelligentsia coffee mugs for sale, which is awesome. Yes, I grabbed one. Did I mention they serve Intelligentsia?
Great atmosphere and service. Split the Blt and breakfast burrito with my hubs and both were really delicious. Excited to add this place to our breakfast rotation.
Bakin' and Eggs is one of my go to brunch places in the city. There is always a wait, but every brunch place you go to on the weekends does. While you are waiting though, they have coffee stations setup so you can get the post hangover, caffeine buzz started early. At certain restaurants, I have a real problem with not trying different things when I come upon something amazing at a place, which is what has happened to me here. I'm a big fan of any breakfast sandwich on a biscuit, but what is even better than a breakfast sandwich on a biscuit?? The answer of course is a breakfast sandwich on a biscuit, covered in gravy....genius. Bacon, eggs, chedder, on a biscuit with chicken apple sausage gravy, straight money. For some reason, I have never tried the flight of bacon there, but I definitely will next time I go. Honestly, how could that in any way go wrong?
Found this establishment on the fly (I was originally at Wishbone but the menu can get pretty boring) so I found Bakin and Eggs and man am I forever happy that I did. The decor and feel of the place was very H&M, hipster-ish, which I like and the lines of people infront of me probably predicts the food is pretty good. The wait to be seated only lasted 15 minutes and it was worth it, I ordered the Bacon Pancake with a side of homefries which were both delish. I strongly recommend this place to anyone who loves breakfast.
This is a great spot for brunch. Came here on a Saturday around 12:30 and only waited for about 20 minutes. They had a serve yourself coffee bar while you waited, which was absolutely awesome. We ordered the Southwestern frittata, bacon pancakes, and the Southern Bowl. There was also a bakery on one side that was packed with goodies that weren't too expensive and looked delicious. Our food was excellent and highly recommended. Service was great and employees appeared very friendly. All around great vibes from this place.
