I went to the Bongo Room in the South Loop because my boyfriend took me here for breakfast. I don’t think he’s caught on yet that I’m not a huge fan of breakfast foods, but if you are, this has several options. Pancakes, omlettes, etc.
The decor is very cute. spring colors on the furniture remind me of a children’s playroom and the only thing breaking the children’s playroom vibe is the shitty top 40’s music.
The pancakes sounded elaborate and amazing as they had seasonal ones with a dozen or so ingredients involved, like a red velvet one or a pumpkin spice one. I chickened out and got a croissant sandwich with egg, bacon, & munster cheese. It came with a gazillion potatoes. My bf’s meal came with a gazillion potatoes too. between us i’m pretty sure they used at least 5 potatoes. Neither of us like potatoes in general, but these were bland so I especially didn’t like them. They were left untouched.
In the end, we were two of those Americans that waste 75% of our food. Huge portion and not really that exciting. Doubt I’ll go back.
