Fodor's Chicago 2014
Sweet Maple Cafe
Sweet Maple Cafe Review
On a Sunday morning, this breakfast-all-day spot is easy to find on Taylor Street: just look for the line out the door. In fact, expect a line on most days as customers ranging from students to police officers and politicians wait for a table in anticipation of warm, buttery biscuits and a side of generous hospitality. Laurene Hynson's menu has something for everyone: buttermilk pancakes and hefty omelets for those who prefer American classics, as well as dishes such as the Dias and Noches Scramble—eggs cooked with grilled chicken and jalapenos and served with a side of freshly made salsa. Not to be overlooked are the home fries, which come in any combination of peppers, cheese, and bacon. For non–breakfast eaters, well-executed salads and soups are available after 11:30 on weekdays.
