Kanela Breakfast Club Restaurant Review

: There’s something to be said for starting the morning right, and this cheery, contemporary breakfast nook affords a chance to do just that. Named for the Greek word for cinnamon, the stylish, seasonally minded BYOB offers everyone’s faves --- only here they’re not merely reworked. Take the duck confit hash for example, which is topped with scallions, orange truffle vinaigrette and fried eggs. Then there’s the funky, savory Greek yogurt, berry and jalapeño chutney-stuffed french toast, a creamy, luxurious and not too calorically over-the-top treat. Meanwhile, sweet-seekers find solace in banana split-inspired crêpes, oozing with strawberries, bananas and Nutella. But don’t rule out dining at lunchtime, given there’s a crème de cassis-accented duck breast sandwich with creamy horseradish and onion confit on offer. If you forget to bring a bottle, smoothies and house juice blends are tasty, booze-free alternatives. Also located at 1552 N. Wells St., 312-255-1206.
