One of my favorite things to do in my late twenties is try out new brunch spots. If you’ve got a kickin’ bloody mary, or a perfectly cooked eggs benedict, I’ll be there. Awhile back, Thrillist posted a list of some of the best places to brunch in Chicago. I’ve been making my way through that list and just recently I went to Flo. Although it features a New Mexican style menu, what they are known for are their Fruity Pebbles French Toast. I’m typically a savory vs. sweet brunch eater, but when in Rome, right?
I can’t compare much as I don’t eat a lot of French Toast, but it was definitely a fun experience having Fruity Pebbles on my French Toast. They also had Cocoa Pebbles French Toast which I was torn on.
Flo itself is a cute little restaurant in West Town with outdoor and bar seating. Because of its size, you’ll definitely have to wait. However, I think the best part of Flo is their free coffee while you wait. Not only was it delicious, it made the wait time much more relaxing!
