Chicago Eats || The Robey

The Robey Chicago Hotel BrunchThere are few things I love more in this life than brunch.

And I especially love finding a new brunch spot that serves brunch every. single. day.

NOT just on weekends.

(Seriously why don’t they all do this?)

Sometimes a little mid-week brunch can be the perfect pick-me-up to get you to the weekend… or maybe that’s just me…

My newest favorite? Café Robey in the newly opened Wicker Park hot spot hotel The Robey.The Robey Chicago Hotel BrunchThe restaurant has a very fresh café-esque vibe that’s bright and minimal.The Robey Chicago Hotel BrunchWith wall-long windows on all sides.The Robey Chicago Hotel BrunchAnd plenty of lovely marble tables to dine at.

Which was rich in flavor and perfect when paired with…The Robey Chicago Hotel BrunchRobey’s Pain au Chocolat which has to be one of the most beautifully executed pastries I’ve had in quite a while.The Robey Chicago Hotel Brunch Flaky, crumbly, and with the perfect amount of rich chocolate.The Robey Chicago Hotel BrunchBeware though, yours will disappear faster than you care to admit.

While the service at Café Robey can feel a little aloof, the beautiful space and delicious options make this one of my new go-to breakfast spots for a healthy, Instagram-worthy meal. And you have to bet the next time I’m there I’ll be ordering one, if not two, pain au chocolats for the road.
