Wishbone, a family owned, independent restaurant, has been cooking southern style, made-from-scratch comfort food for more than 30 years. You can get bacon and eggs anywhere but Wishbone's Shrimp & Grits, Blackened Catfish, Jambalaya Omelette, Chicken Andouille Hash and homemade biscuits in pork sausage gravy will wake up your neurons and digestion. There aren't many places in the Midwest offering signature cornmeal pancakes made with sweet corn and scallions with roasted red pepper sauce plus two eggs. The Louisiana Bowl will take you to NOLA via red beans over rice dappled with chicken andouille sausage, two eggs any style and corn muffin, toast or biscuit. Black Bean Cakes and Buckwheat Pancakes are popular with vegetarians and vegans and everyone appreciates the affordable prices and friendly service. There's good coffee and a full bar with unique breakfast/brunch beverages. Look for the early bird special to resume when downtown gets busy again.
- Breakfast: "If you like breakfast, return for lunch, dinner or Happy Hour food and drink specials."
- Best for Breakfast Because: The West Loop's Wishbone serves southern style, made-from-scratch breakfasts from fried catfish and grits to straight up bacon and eggs.
