This is a small, often crowded breakfast spot in Ravenswood. But the friendly staff and free coffee they give you in line make up for the wait. It also helps that the breakfast food here is delicious across the board - from the “sassy eggs” (chorizo and potato hash with scrambled eggs and ancho chile ketchup) to sweeter options like blueberry crunch pancakes (with cinnamon butter and housemade granola). They keep it interesting with weekly specials, too.
