Fodor's Review

This Scandinavian mini-chain, open since 1945, is a Chicago institution for good reason: the aroma of fresh cinnamon rolls, Swedish pancakes with lingonberries, and waffles put this place on the map. It still draws a mob—at this location and at the handful of other spots on the city's North Side—where hungry diners line up along the block for weekend breakfasts. Sure, you can order a familiar brunch dish like eggs Benedict, but why not try the stellar potato pancakes with applesauce instead? There are a handful of Scandinavian specialties at lunch, as well as standard café sandwiches and salads.
