Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as evidenced by its collection of brain-boosting foods and its exclusive namesake club. Feast on the upper echelon of meals with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of breakfast fare and drinks at Blueberry Hill, with locations in Aurora, Darien, Homer Glen, Homewood, and LaGrange.
Blueberry Hill is a casual breakfast eatery that springs to life daily at 6 a.m., furnishing an extensive menu of pancakes, crêpes, omelets, skillets, and sandwiches. Customers can sink chompers into a fluffy stack of buttermilk pancakes ($4.99), available in flavorful varieties such as georgia pecan ($6.99) and triple berry ($7.59). Warm, savory omelets and skillets hush rumbling bellies with entrees such as the Luck of the Irish skillet, an amalgam of corned beef hash, melted swiss cheese, and edible Celtics pennants ($7.79), while crêpes, blintzes, waffles, and french toast slash early-morning cravings for sweet treats. Midday noshers can fuel up for afternoon bicycle jousts with burgers and sandwiches, including the aussie chicken sandwich, a vessel of grilled chicken breast, crispy bacon, mushrooms, and melted jack and cheddar cheeses ($7.59). To shower the ticker with a little extra love, Blueberry Hill offers a reduced-fat version of any egg dish with heart-healthy Egg Beaters or egg whites ($1 extra).
In the kitchens of Blueberry Hill's five suburban outposts, cooks forgo lazy morning lounging to pull together homey assortments of timeless brunch fare. Pancakes infused with fruit or sweets are made from scratch, much like hand-knitted socks or hand-painted report cards. French-toast slices get stuffed with apple and cream cheese, smothered in fruit, or rolled in Cap'n Crunch. Fresh meats and veggies take cover under eggs in savory skillets, and a selection of sandwiches quells cravings in handheld form.
