Best french toast in the city? It might be at The Breakfast Club and Grill! Jon Hansen will cheers to that with a mimosa! Check out this local gem that's been in the West Town neighborhood for over 30 years.

The Infatuation

"The Breakfast Club is warm and homey, and it’s open every day from early in the morning until 5pm, making it ideal for a casual breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Stick to basic breakfast items like eggs, pancakes, and french toast, or spice things up with a stuffed cinnamon cream cheese french toast (which is still pretty simple). But The Breakfast Club proves there’s nothing wrong with simplicity, because that’s what makes it reliable."

"To kick off the list of the best French toast in Chicago, we've got the Breakfast Club & Grill, a Chicago treasure. This restaurant has been serving up "the #1 French toast" in the city for over 30 years. The classic French toast is comprised of challah bread (the best type of bread to use for French toast) and dusted generously with powdered sugar, but if you want to go all out, order the Nutella banana French toast. It's gluttonous enough for even those with a perpetual sweet tooth."


"With a bright pink awning, an outdoor patio, and a name that evokes a 1980s blockbuster movie, The Breakfast Club and Grill in the artsy West Town district is where basic breakfast is done right...The menu is loaded with brunch staples that don't stray far from its humble beginnings, including pancakes, waffles, eggs Benedict, omelets, and scrambles, but the presentation and high-quality ingredients make this spot more than worthy."
