Review: Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe

Happy Sunday Funday! 

So in full transparency I’m not a huge breakfast eater unless I’m feeling hungover or sick to my stomach.  I’ll usually have soda (but I'm trying to kick that habit) or coffee during breakfast time, and at that point I’ll usually skip to eating during lunch.

But lately we’ve been eating out a lot more (I think I’ve mentioned there are portions of our house that are completely unusable at the moment), and breakfast is one of those meals where we've either gone out or picked something up in order to skip lunch.  I guess our eating habits have temporarily changed since food isn't as accessible at home.

There’s a place in Chicago and the surrounding burbs called Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe, and it's some of the best brunch food I've had.  It's high quality food, you get huge portions, and if you want a coffee they actually have a coffee bar with options outside of a traditional cup of coffee (honey nut toffee latte, turtle mocha, or vanilla berry latte anyone?)

The prices are high for breakfast food, however it tastes so good and you get such large portions that I can look past the prices.

This weekend I got the Homemade Corned Beef Hash with 2 Eggs Over Easy and Cottage Cheese.  I've been a fan of Corned Beef Hash ever since I tried my husband's that he got at a small restaurant in Door County.  It wasn't greasy and had more meat in it than the ratio to hash browns, which I was happy with!

But as you can see, portions are massive.  On top of that, you can choose from a side and I chose the specialty pancakes for an upcharge (I wanted Banana Cream Pie flavored).  I LOVE when restaurants allow you to get a side or a single portion of a specialty item, mainly because many of them are extremely sweet so an individual portion is perfect for that!

But really this pancake was bomb.  It had a brown sugar topping, cream 'pudding' and a whole banana chopped up.  You can't go wrong with Wildberry, and I recommend it highly to anyone looking for a yummy brunch spot with good food!

  • I don’t think you can go wrong with anything you order from Wildberry.  It’s pricey, but it comes with the territory of great breakfast food.  I’d rather pay for quality when it comes to breakfast!
