Saturday and Sunday mornings are perfect for getting together with friends or family to enjoy a delicious meal together. With tons of sunny Chicago weekends ahead of us, it’s about time to get out and explore some of Chicago’s best brunch destinations just a short walk away from The St. Regis Chicago. If you’re wondering where to enjoy your next brunch outing, check out one of these four local spots.

Just a few blocks south of The St. Regis Chicago you’ll find The Dearborn, located on the Northwest corner of Block 37. This is a great brunch spot in downtown Chicago if you’re looking to enjoy your morning brunch before an afternoon of shopping. The restaurant’s murals, leather booths, and other details throughout were inspired by Chicago’s past. Their brunch menu includes savory and sweet dishes, as well as tasty brunch cocktails that you can enjoy on their newly reopened patio!

If you’re looking for a home-cooked brunch menu, head on over to Eggy’s Diner on the South side of Lakeshore East Park! Modeled after the classic, homey diners of the 1960’s, Eggy’s is more than just eggs! You’ll also find pancakes, sandwiches, and burgers on their menu. Fun fact: the French toast was featured on the Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise!”

Established in 2010, Kanela Breakfast Club, which means cinnamon in Greek, offers Greek-infused American breakfast and lunch items. Kanela Breakfast Club’s Streeterville location is just steps away from the Chicago Riverwalk and Lakefront Trail. Enjoy some Kanela Monkey Bread then a nice walk along the lake or river.

The Hampton Social is a popular spot for American coastal cuisine and that “Rosé All Day” lifestyle. With locations in Streeterville and River North, it’s summer year-round at The Hampton Social making it the perfect destination for imbibing and relaxing with your friends. Tip: you can’t go wrong ordering their lobster roll!

If you prefer lunch over brunch, check out The Palm inside the Swissotel just steps away on Wacker Drive from The St. Regis Chicago. Enjoy salads, burgers and steaks, pastas, and other sandwiches while admiring the beautiful hand-painted mural of the city’s skyline.

Lastly, you won’t want to miss out on Avli on the Park (Lakeshore East) when it opens later this Spring. Start your beautiful day with Mediterranean and Greek inspired cuisine at this beloved brunch spot in downtown Chicago!
