Created by the morning-focused owners of the bakery known as Lovely, Bakin’ & Eggs gives breakfast dishes their time in the limelight by serving traditional eats, such as frittatas and pancakes, with less than typical ingredients, such as roasted asparagus and jalapeño sour cream. Fluffy eggs draped in gourmet cheese and bundled inside flaky croissants or multigrain bread create a host of breakfast-worthy sandwiches, and frittatas inspired by the flavors of Mexico, Italy, and Popeye's single-ingredient cookbook treat forks to layers of egg-laden goodness. But bacon is the star of the menu: it adds its salty decadence to burritos, rum-batter waffles, and biscuits and gravy, and it even flies solo in a five-flavor bacon flight so large that the Chicago Reader warns it requires "either a hearty appetite or plenty of reinforcements." As the hours march on, Bakin’ & Eggs also serves a number of lunch dishes, including grilled and fresh sandwiches and creative salads.
