“Best French toast”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Love the atmosphere be the coffee is good and the breakfast and brunch menu is really interesting. The lunch salads are also very good, Now that I don't live in lakeview anymore I wish there was one in Wicker park.

Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

This place is perfect for your next event. The food is fantastic, they make a KILLER Mac and cheese the hummus is heaven. The staff was attentive and all smiles. These place is squeaky clean. Added bonus, this place is just steps from the Belmont light rail station. Give them a call they are great people ready to help you pull off your next event seamlessly.

“Absolutely loved it!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Kanela Rolls are to die for! I also love anywhere that offers bottomless mimosas for brunch-- so Kanela Breakfast Club made the cut!

Their fresh orange juice (so fresh they have a giant juicer immediately behind the bar) was also a hit with my friends and I.

The decor was chic, and service was great- quick and kind.

I would definitely return to Kanela on a future visit to Chicago.

“Nice Spot For Breakfast and/or Lunch in Old Town”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

On a street packed with good dining choices, Kanela Breakfast Club is a standout.

The menu is creative and extensive with a bit of something for everyone. There are many Greek inspired choices as well as traditional breakfast and lunch offerings. Of particular note is the French Toast and the house-made Chicken Sausage. There are also a number of generous salads and sandwiches available, and a Lamb Burger that is particularly outstanding.

You'll find plenty of fresh juices and coffee offerings on the menu too.

Service is cheerful and quick. And if the weather is nice, the Al fresco dining is lovely.

Recommended!

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

This refers to the 1552 N. Wells St. in Old Town location. We dined there twice for breakfast during our visit to Chicago. Fresh ingredients. Great coffee. Side potato's were excellent. Interesting menu selections. Highly recommend the Portobello Mushroom Benedict. Great combination of flavors. Service was good. Place was clean. Small outdoor area. On Wells just south of North Ave.
