Five Brunch Menus in the (far northwest) Burbs We Love

Perfect Brunching outfit tee & jeans from Nordstrom paired with Tieks

We think Sunday brunch is the perfect way to end your weekend – it has breakfast and lunch items, desserts, and bubbly – it’s everything! Brunch is perfect for families (plenty of options for even the pickiest eaters), QT with your gal pals, and a mid-morning date with your SO.

Since we love it so, we’re always looking out for new places, but have to admit, we venture back to our tried and true favorites and here they are:

  1. Pinstripes | South Barrington
    • Bottomless buffet style brunch and bowling, is right up our alley! We love the casual yet upscale atmosphere, and during the warmer weather sitting outside on their killer patio, sipping our $4 mimosas or $7 bloody mary’s. Stick around to check out the amazing shops in the Arboretum of South Barrington.
  2. Beelow’s |Lake Zurich
    • Featuring a Prime rib carving station, omelet and waffle stations, and plenty of drink offerings, this Farm to Table brunch is our spot before we hit up Deer Park Town Center for some shopping.
  3. Port Edward | Algonquin
    • There’s a reason their champagne brunch is Award Winning – it’s full of seafood, including crab claws and lobster tails, along with made to order omelets, london broil carving station and a chocolate fountain, oh and champagne is included, or you can get yourself a bloody mary for $5.
  4. Benedict’s La Strada |Crystal Lake
    • While it’s not a buffet, Benedict’s menu is one of the best for brunch. From traditional breakfast items, benedicts, stratas, to lunch salads, sandwiches, you can’t pick wrong. They serve coffee by Intelligentsia, fresh squeezed OJ make their mimosa’s tasty and their homemade bloody mary mix is a good one. {myBAB note: beignets are not available on Sundays}
  5. Brunch Cafe | McHenry, Fox River Grove, Huntley, St. Charles, Niles, Roselle, and Kildeer coming soon
    • Well-known for their twist on the regular menu items like chocolate bacon pancakes, breakfast sliders and fruity pebble baby cakes for the little brunchers, this not-so hidden gem is worth the visit. The menu includes lunch options, but we tend to stick to the breakfast and brunch items with a strawberry mimosa. {mBAB tip: join the wait list before you go}
