Belgian Waffles

by tucsongirl

I have about 6 hours stopover in Chicago and my flight is landing in the morning. I'm planning to visit downtown and get a bite to eat. Is there a good place for breakfast that serves Belgian waffles downtown area?

Re: Belgian Waffles

Which airport are you flying into? If it's O'Hare, that's a good 45 minutes out of the city by train:

"The Chicago Transit Authority runs a 24 hour train service - the "L" Blue Line - between downtown Chicago and O'Hare Airport.

Blue Line stations downtown include La Salle, Jackson, Monroe, Washington and Clark/Lake. The Orange Line to/from Midway Airport connects with the Blue Line at Clark/Lake station.

The O'Hare CTA station is located on the lower level concourse in the main terminal area. Follow the signs for 'CTA Trains' or 'Trains to City'. Passengers for Terminal 5 should use the ATS transfer train to/from Terminal 5.

Journey time between downtown Chicago and O'Hare Airport is around 45 minutes. Trains run every ten minutes during the day, more frequently during rush hours.

The one-way CTA fare is $2.25.

More information is available at the Chicago Transit Authority web site."

So, just figure on killing two of your six hours in transit (getting to the airport station from gate, etc). Just in case my fare info is outdated, reference the CTA website?

Also, what day of the week? Just Belgian waffles or is there some other adventurous breakfast that you would like to try. As Goodfish says you will need about 1 hour each way on the "L" train. I'm from the suburbs of Chicago but have been downtown more often in the past few years since my 2 oldest sons live in the big city. So let me know and we'll see if we can give you a few choices. Also check with Chicago VT members DABS page as she as lots of restaurant tips for Chicago.

If you manage the metro and have the time, you can have a good breakfast at Grand Lux which is immediately off of Michigan Ave. After you eat, you can see the heart of downtown with a quick walk around. I just ate there the other day, I didn't have the waffles, but they did look good.

Are you just looking for Belgian waffles? Or a place to have breakfast? 6 hours is enough time to leave the airport and grab something to eat, if you are not set on just waffles, you might think about going to the Bongo Room. The stop is the Damen stop on the blue line el that runs from O'Hare (assuming you are coming in there and not Midway). They serve more unique breakfast items like a tower of chocolate french toast or S'More pancakes.

I know you asked for waffles, but I can't let you post this question without telling you about my favorite brunch places in the city.

- Yolk (great all-around breakfast)
- Bongo Room (insane pancakes)

I'm sure they both have waffles but please please please just check the menus online and I promise, you'll be a fan!

Travel Tips for Chicago

Chicago's Gay Pride!

by ani10881

Yes, yes, I know the Pride Parade now bends to corporate will, but everyone still has a good time! June is Pride Month, and the parade is always on the last Sunday.

Visit the Michigan Avenue...

by cvsolfari

Visit the Michigan Avenue bridge. This is the intersection of the Loop to the south, Michigan Avenue shopping to the north and the Chicago River. There are sightseeing boat trips that run when the weather is nice.

A year ago, my friends from London finally came to visit the great city of Chicago. They brought with them their Lonely Planet and I did some detailed investigation of the bars, pubs and restaurants that they recommended. Turns out that they were recommending everything that I was taking them to do! Twin Anchors for ribs, Smart Bar for clubbing, and Holiday Club for meeting people! Right on, LP! The cleanliness of the streets. You won't believe that this is a city of 6 million people.

THE PICASSO

by LoriPori

Constructed of Cor-ten steel and rising to a height of fifty feet, THE PICASSO design was donated by the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, himself. Located in the Richard J. Daley Civic Center Plaza at 50 W. Washington Street, it is the first monumental modern sculpture to be placed in the "loop". At the time of its installation in 1967, the abstract design puzzled many. However, this gift from the artist to the people of Chicago has over time become an icon of the city and a source of civic pride.

Fine Arts Building - 410 S. Michigan Ave (1885)

by yooperprof

This was originally (1885) the Studebaker Building, and the first floor served as a showroom for those famous horseless carriages from South Bend. But this place has been associated with Chicago's art community for a long time. Interesting facade: columns, romanesque arches, sober stones. Originally, the building was only 8 stories; the top stories were an afterthought, as you can tell from close observation. 410 S. Michigan Ave.

Go CD Shopping

by cwest03

If you like music you must go to Reckless Records on N. Milwaukee Street. They have a great selection of CDs, Records, Tapes, Videos and more. The thing I like best about this place is their prices. I got 7 CDs for under $50 USD. What a deal. A great electronic music selection among others and a very knowledgeable staff.
