If you’re in the Lakeview section of Chicago, start your day with breakfast at 2 Sparrows Cafe. 2 Sparrows serves delicious traditional comfort food breakfast items, and some with a twist.
|Maple and Bacon Doughnut|
On the menu are savory delights like made-to-order Maple & Bacon Doughnuts and homemade pop tarts available in three flavors: Rhubarb and Ginger Icing, Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese, or Nutella and Raspberry Icing. Or try their Cinnamon Buns with Goat Cheese Icing. All were delicious, but those doughnuts were amazing.
