It seems like everyone love breakfast/brunch. They always talk about how relaxing it is to go out for brunch on the weekend with their family and friends. I guess I am the odd one out here, I am not the biggest fan of breakfast/brunch.

 

 


Sure I do enjoy good company and spending time with them...but not at 11am in the morning on the weekend. If you know me at all, I am more of a lunch person more than dinner or breakfast and typical breakfast items really never interested me. It might have to do with the fact that I am more so a savoury type of person over sweet type?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Anyways, nonetheless- my friend took me to her favorite brunch spot near her house when I was visiting her in Chicago. I looked up their review prior to the visit and one of their menu caught my eye, Red Velvet French Toast! Yes, I know red velvet is so gone with the trend and it's been over played- but I still love good red velvet cupcake once in awhile. So when I saw Red velvet french toast at wildberry cafe, I knew I had to try it.

 

 

 

Table Setting

 


Ordered: Small Orange Juice for $3.50

 

* Good orange juice but why are OJs so expensive at breakfast joints?

 


Ordered: Americano for $2.75

 

 


Ordered: Red Velvet French Toast 3/5

 

* Homemade Red velvet cake dipped in a special batter and loaded with cream cheese frosting for $8.95
* Served with whipped butter and warm syrup

 


* 3 of red velvet french toast served with some strawberries
* Despite my expectations, this wasn't too crazy sweet
* Cream cheese frosting wasn't the normal frostings they use for cupcakes

 

 


* To be honest it wasn't anything amazing
* It was very soft inside and little crunchy outside
* I prefer regular french toast over this

 

 


Ordered: Mexicana Sizzlin Skillets 4/5

 

* 2 eggs with chorizo, japapenos, avocado, cilantro and onions plus pancakes/toast for $10.50
* This was huge in portion, comes with side of pancakes or toast as well as fruit bowl

 


* I wouldn't be surprised if they used 3 or more eggs for the omelette
* Omelette was filled with lots of veggies and chorizo sausage

 

 


* This alone is enough to feed 2 people in the morning
* Couldn't really taste cilantro overall

 

 


Summary: Wildberry is def a tourist spot in heart of downtown Chicago, but they do breakfast right. Service was efficient and food was solid. If you come in later, there is a line up outside the door so make sure to come early. Wildberry on Urbanspoon
