Cafe Con Leche

Cheap, tasty brunch. It’s just one of several new restaurant categories (great for date, take the ‘rents, late-night bite are a few more) I’ll be rolling out on elizabites in the coming months, so you’ll soon be able to search for a spot that suits your local dining needs (drop me a line with specific category suggestions you’d like to see). This weekend I checked out the friendly and fast Cafe Con Leche in Bucktown for brunch. From chilaquiles to chorizo, jalapeño and black bean burritos, this is definitely Mexican-style brunch with a Greek omelet, French toast and egg sandwiches thrown in for good measure. There’s four different egg dishes and I loved the Huevos Divorciados: two eggs sunny side up served on flour tortillas that are irreconcilably divided between spicy green salsa and a fresh, red salsa, but share custody of black refried beans, cheese and tortilla chips. It all works out in the end, but don’t bother ordering a side of potatoes, which were too greasy for my tastes. The veggie burrito is a wheat flour tortilla stuffed with scrambled eggs, potatoes, black beans, cheese, sour cream and a creamy avocado salsa. Both dishes are a mere 6 bones and totally filling. The drinks rock too, especially the signature cafe con leche, milkshakes and Aguas Frescas (100% natural fruit water drinks in flavors like hibiscus, cantaloupe and watermelon). Cafe Con Leche serves lunch and dinner as well, with carne asada for $13 and a signature El Cubano sandwich with amazing fries for $5. Other details worth noting: Mexican sweet breads and pastries, Strawberry Crush, and Dum Dum pops with the check. 1732 N. Milwaukee Ave., 773.342.2233
