Top 5 Places to Black owned Brunch Spots

Having brunch is more than celebrating a buffet-style meal with non-stop pancakes, eggs and potatoes—it’s about great variety, a refreshing environment and a creative menu. It’s the thing to celebrate between breakfast and dinner, catching up friends and hopefully enjoying some mimosas. Expect a reasonable wait at some of these restaurants because the wait is worth the food on the plate. As we wrap Chicago Black Restaurant Week, we are proud to recognize many of the city’s great dining institutions as well as new businesses carving out a place at the table among cultural cuisines.

Doing brunch is not new to the scene, in fact, it’s a ‘art’ for those who make it a point to check out new menus, catch up with friends and just enjoy the scene. Although, there are plenty of cool and hip restaurants that feature a great brunch experience, we would like to recognize some Chicago Black-owned establishments that are frequent the most. Our list is based on community employment, awesome food, good service, quality ingredients and a rich cultural environment.
