Orange Contemporary Brunch in Chicago
Enjoying some fabulous alone time and delicious coffee with my favorite person this cloudy and gray morning at Orange. He’s having the pancake flight that includes cakes from Barcelona, Tokyo, New York, and Paris. Wish I could get the Paris Hotcakes as a regular sized dish – they are Nutella-filled…really? Nutella-filled? Holy yum!! On top of that there are sauteed bananas – I’m jealous. I’m going to try to out do him with chocolate chip pancakes – probably the most unhealthy choice on the menu, whoops. ;)
Ok – post brunch review: The chocolate chip pancakes were unfortunately a bit dry and paired with the entire cup of chocolate pieces plopped on top, it was tough to eat much of…I would have rather seen less chips and put them inside the batter. Outside of that – Bobby gives a big thumbs up to the pancake flight, the service was great, the coffee was great, the atmosphere (as always) delightful. I really enjoyed having some time with my hubby – sans the whole crew for once. Don’t worry guys, there is always next weekend. ;)
If you haven’t tried Orange yet, get over there and do it. It will be worth your while, with many eclectic breakfast and lunch choices that will surprise you.
