Brunch 'alfresco' in Chicago

The ushering in of spring is symbolized not only by sunnier weather (hopefully), but also the springing up of patio tables and chairs in front of restaurants and cafés all throughout the city. “Café con Leche,” in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood, offers a relaxing place to enjoy a delicious brunch alfresco. Have an excellent cup of java from the coffee bar, or try one of Café con Leche’s Mexican Licuados (milkshakes), which feature unique flavorings such as plantain and cinnamon.

The brunch menu offers many vegetarian-friendly entrees either in the traditional Mexican style of cooking or with a Mexican twist. Select from brunch standards such as huevos vegetarianos, a nopalito omelet, an egg and cheese sandwich, French toast, or a vegetarian breakfast burrito. Spice up Saturday or Sunday morning a little more with a selection from the “veggie” section of the menu, which offers chile rellenos, and enfrijoladas tapatias (cheese quesadillas smothered in a special black bean sauce).

Whether you are simply stopping in for a signature coffee, or looking to bask in the sunshine at a sidewalk seat, Café con Leche offers a vegetarian-friendly, relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for enjoying brunch alfresco.
