There isn't a Lumes on every corner, but if you drive around the south 'burbs it can feel like it. Bright, clean and very popular, Lumes offers buttermilk pancakes, crepes, blintzes and waffles with all manner of fruit toppings, including cinnamon-apple and cherries. The confectioners' sugar-dusted pancakes are fine plain, however, and for the sturdy (and patient) there are oven-baked pancakes that take 20 to 40 minutes to make. One of these, the Signature Baby, arrives as a large puffy bowl filled with chopped fresh fruit. We're not sure you can call it a pancake exactly, but traditionalists can't beat the regular flapjacks here.
