Waffles Cafe, a modern eatery with stainless-steel accents and exposed piping, won a Best New Breakfast award from Time Out Chicago in 2012. The spot's cooks prepare dense, sweet liege waffles and airy brussels-style waffles, crowning each round of iron-crisped batter with toppings such as orange anglaise sauce or coffee-braised short ribs with aged cheddar. Diners can also opt for omelets, sandwiches, and Mexican entrees such as a steak-and-eggs torta with heirloom-bean spread, washing back each bite with fresh-squeezed orange juice or Intelligentsia coffee.
