Lula - Chicago, IL

Cute quaint brunch cafe in Chicago in the Logan Square neighborhood. Brunch is probably my favorite meal.. I love that it implies weekend and sleeping in, and there's a mix between breakfast and foods you eat the rest of the day.

Addicted to coffee, doesn't feel like the day has begun without it.

Cottage cheese griddle cakes with blackberry sauce. So light and creamy from the cottage cheese and a bit of tang from the berry.

Braised pork fried egg torta with Mexican cheese. We usually like to get something savory to offset all the sweetness, this sandwich was amazing and got me hooked on Oaxaca cheese, now I want it on everything.

Tres de leche French toast with apple chutney. Usually use the French toast to gauge how good a brunch place is, this one was so moist and creamy.. delicious!

  5. So for a good 5 seconds the latte looked gold colored to me, which blew my mind of course. I'm not a coffee snob myself, and rarely drink it. I have one addiction though, that being lattes from this one specific place.
