Crossbreeding lunch and breakfast led to a successful new type of meal, while breeding Oktoberfest with dachshunds yielded wiener dogs. Munch a mutant meal with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of brunch, sandwiches, salads, smoothies, and more at Janik's Café in Wicker Park.
Quell pancake addictions, treat sandwich deficiencies, and confront food abandonment issues at Janik's Café, a nibbling nook that has exposed brick, cozy warm colors, bright paintings, and hand-written chalkboard menus. Brunch baits breakfasteers all day long with three-egg omelettes served with hash browns and toast ($6.50 and up) and pancake and french toast temptations ($5.25 and up). Lunch boxes can be filled with made-to-order salads, sandwiches, and homemade soups. Pick a steak or chicken captain to recruit a team of black beans, corn, avocado, jack and cheddar cheeses, and tortilla chips on the mixed-green playing field of the southwestern salad ($9.50), or adopt a pet cactus and head south for an oven-baked mexican sandwich with juicy seasoned chicken, cheddar, and avocado ($5.20). Janik's also offers pastas, appetizers, ice-cream shakes, fresh-fruit smoothies, and more.
Inebriating imbibations from Janik's full-service bar include cocktails and beer and may lead to sudden fluency in Norwegian and a sudden fear of narwhal attacks.
