Came here for Sunday brunch and the last game of the World Cup. Place was packed but we had a beautiful booth reserved for us so that was ideal! Because of the crowds and energy level the staff seemed overwhelmed. Can’t really comment on what a normal brunch service would be. Everything sounded great on the menu. I ordered the Thief’s Breakfast which was 2 eggs, potatoes, bacon and sourdough toast. Everything was generously served and very tasty! More

Discover Evanston

In suburban Evanston, you'll find one of Chicagoland's most noteworthy dishes: stuffed pizza. A deep-dish pan is filled with layers upon layers of toppings, sauce and cheese and is covered with an extra stretch of dough before baking. The price on stuffed pizza can be cause for a bit of sticker shock when compared to everyday pizza pies, but as a college town, Evanston has plenty of options more suitable for those on a budget. Two other Windy City favorites, Italian beef sandwiches and all-beef hot dogs on poppy seed buns, are noteworthy examples. Those looking for a more refined dining experience will find that the menus of table-service restaurants feature Midwestern comfort dishes built around meat, cheese and an assortment of farm-fresh vegetables.
