Located in West Town, The Breakfast Club remains a favorite spot for a pre-work boost or a lunchtime break. Inside the front door, a sign reads, "Welcome to Home Cooking." A befitting greeting, as the kitchen makes everything--from pancake batter to hash browns to meatloaf--from scratch. The dining room is full of chatter and homey touches; and the background music (mostly classical) adds a touch of unexpected elegance. A seat by the front bay window offers urban views of workers loading semi trucks across the street.
