Casual Chicago Brunch: Orange

I have friends in town every weekend for the rest of the summer and they love brunch as much as I do, so I’m taking advantage of checking out some of the “oldie but goodie” brunch spots I haven’t been to yet.

Sunday we went to Orange in Lincoln Park.  The wait wasn’t terrible, about 15 minutes, and the restaurant is diner style – very casual.  We showed up in workout clothes, prepared to walk off whatever we decided to demolish.

We got the orange coffee, and I think I had about 5 cups of it.  The coffee tastes similar to a chocolate orange I’m sure you’ve tried at some point in your life (but not sweet).  I also liked that all the water was infused with cucumber.

We split the chai tea french toast which was incredible, a ricotta stuffed brioche soaked in chai tea batter.  Delicious!  I also got the eggs benedict with the house mashed potatoes.  No complaints here.  A solid, low-key brunch all around with a very friendly, accommodating wait staff.  A great spot for  small groups and families.
