Little Chef- American Traditional: you won't find any surprises here, unless you're just surprised by great breakfast food. This intimate local favorite features a slight British take on U.S. breakfast, and hasn't changed a bit since it opened 48 years ago-right down to the pictures on the walls. Located in McHenry.
The Brunch Café- Brunch: If the great service and modern environment doesn't wow you, the food certainly will. The Brunch Café boasts a huge menu of breakfast favorites made with super-fresh ingredients. If you've ever wondered what red velvet French toast would taste like, now's your chance to find out (it's delicious by the way). Located in McHenry, Huntley, and Fox River Grove.
Benedict's La Strata*- New American: If fresh, seasonal flavors are your thing, hop over to Benedict's for a selection of brunch favorites with a twist, like the goat cheese, artichoke and smoked ham strata. The drinks are as great as the food, from the Intelligentsia coffee to the Taffy Apple Cider. On Friday and Saturday, you can even stop in to sample some dinner options. Located in Downtown Crystal Lake.
