The Bongo Room: For the Breakfast-Obsessed


You and your pancake-obsessed friends have been searching for that perfect breakfast joint for years now. Well look no further than the Bongo Room in Chicago’s Wicker Park. Seriously serious about their food, you’ll usually be able to spot this place by looking for the long line of patrons wrapped around the block. Don’t be dismayed, because the line moves quickly and the wait is worth it. Once you take your seats at a cozy table in the green-walled dining room, you and your friends can dive into a parade over-the-top, sinfully-sweet dishes. Try the fluffy, melt-in-your mouth red velvet pancakes and you’ll be oohing and aahing over every bite. With huge portion sizes you wont even begrudge your friend for nabbing another bite off your plate. You know you’re leaving here stuffed. And what would be your new favorite breakfast establishment be without some good old-fashioned coffee? Ease the sweetness factor with a sip of their full-bodied, locally roasted, Intelligentsia Coffee. It’s so smooth, you won’t even want to add sugar. By the end of your visit, the vote will be unanimous: you all agree to meet here next week. You’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Now you know that it can also be the most delicious.
