Restaurants for Breakfast

There's no better way to start off your day in Chicago than with a premium breakfast, and when you're staying in Downtown Chicago, you're in luck, because some of the best Chicago Loop restaurants specialize in the most important meal of the day!

  • The Bongo Room: This is the perfect place for breakfast and brunch in Chicago. The casual ambiance makes this family friendly Chicago restaurant enjoyable for all and if you decide to have a seat and order your first meal of the day, you won't want to miss out on their pancakes, French toast or their fresh squeezed juices. This is one of the most crowded restaurants in Chicago Loop at times, but they are well worth the wait if you think you can stand it.
  • Meli Cafe and Juice Bar: Here's another one of the great Chicago Loop restaurants for breakfast who also serves up some fresh squeezed juices and house made marmalades. This restaurant does get a lot of hype, and for good reason! If you're looking for a healthy breakfast in the Chicago Loop, this may be the spot for you - but those of you who go heavy on the syrup with an extra side of bacon will also get a more than satisfying meal in this joint as well!

Chicago Restaurants - Lunch

If you're saving your slice of pizza for dinner and could use a hearty sandwich instead, there are plenty of Chicago Loop restaurants that are perfect for lunch. Whether you're sightseeing in Chicago with the kids or enjoying a romantic weekend getaway, you can't go wrong with either of these restaurants in Loop Chicago.

  • Perry's Deli: A local legend, if you will. This famous Chicago restaurant has been featured on TV, talked about in magazines and enjoyed by many Chicago Travelers. It could easily be said that Perry's puts the "deli" in delicious, and since 1982 it's been one of the most affordable restaurants in Chicago Loop, but they pile their sandwiches high and have plenty of sides to pair with them. Save room for dessert though, because you won't want to miss out on their cookies and brownies either.
  • Hannah's Bretzel: Pretzel bread gives these sandwiches a little something extra, but they serve all different kinds of bread here too. In addition to having tons of different sandwiches on the menu to choose from, everything is healthy, fresh and a lot of it is even organic. Hannah's Bretzel has been named the best local chain and their Italian Parma and Goat Cheese was named the Number 1 Sandwich in Chicago!

Chicago Restaurants - Dinner

Of course when you're in Chicago you're going to want to treat yourself to some of that deep-dish pizza, but Chicago is known for all different kinds of food, so don't limit yourself!

  • Giordano's Pizza: There is quite a controversy over who has the best pizza in Chicago, but that's hard to really say. All we know is that Giordano's is a top contender for that title. There are tons of people who claim that this is in fact the best pizza in Chicago, so obviously you'll never go wrong with a meal here, for lunch or dinner. They serve a lunch special that can't be beat (but you feel like you're getting a great value here with any meal.) The food usually comes out fast and everyone is really friendly. 
  • Chicago Food Tours: Don't limit yourself to just one restaurant though - Chicago food tours are a great way to experience tons of the best Chicago Loop restaurants and more! You can explore all different kinds of pizza with Chicago Pizza Tours or all the different kinds of food the city is famous for in the Chicago Tastebud Food Tours. If you're worried about maintaining your figure but still want to chow down, try one of Bobby's Bike Hike food tours, where you're still getting your food fix while also burning some of those calories you're putting on.
