Brunchin’ Around The Neighborhood
In the city, brunch has practically become a sport and Greektown is no exception. Whether visitors are looking to get the girls together or seeking a more laidback vibe, brunch in Greektown is limitless.
For the girls:
When the ladies get together for brunch, it’s all about having fun. That’s why the incredibly charming atmosphere at Athena Restaurant is perfect. Between the comfortable patio seating and retractable roof, Athena is somewhere guests stay long after they’ve paid the bill.
For the health nut:
Needless to say, brunch dishes can often be tempting, but at Meli Café, it’s easy for the health conscious to continue eating clean. A whole section of the restaurant’s menu is even dedicated to such “healthy habits” and includes delicious items like date and nut Greek yogurt and homemade granola cereal. Over a dozen handcrafted juice blends are available, as well, for those who prefer a nutritious liquid breakfast.
For the on-the-go diner:
Whether one is eating alone or joining a friend, Artopolis Bakery, Café, and Agora is the ideal European style place to stop by. The bakery offers a handful of pastries like traditional baklava squares and coffee drinks including specialty Greek coffee, espresso, cappuccinos, lattes, and more to fuel guests. The panforte cheesecake crepes topped with fresh berries are another neighborhood favorite.
For the al fresco diner:
Chicago is no stranger to al fresco dining when beautiful weather comes around, but the patio at Greek Islands Restaurant offers one of the best Greektown brunch experiences among potted flowers and tourists passing by. The restaurant even imports its own extra virgin olive oil, wine, cheeses, seafood, olives, herbs, and spices directly from Greece meaning every dish is made using natural and fresh ingredients.
For the sports lover:
Nineteen high-definition big screen TVs and a Bloody Mary bar make The Ambassador Public House the best spot for sports lovers to gather for brunch. This place specializes in classic, European fare and airs global sports including soccer, football, rugby, ice hockey, basketball, golf, and more. Each Sunday, chow down on the all-day Irish breakfast without arguing about what to watch and enjoy $7 customizable Bloody Marys.
