Meli Cafe

Breakfast in West Loop & Near West Side

Meli is the Greek word for ‘honey,’ and it’s apt for this sweet breakfast spot. Cage-free eggs served over a bed of potatoes, spinach-and-feta omelets, seasonal berry crepes and the decadent French toast (made from challah bread dipped in vanilla-bean custard) start the day off right. Meli has a few outposts around town.

The cafe is also a juice bar, so you can gulp anything from wheat-grass shots to mango-banana smoothies.
