Brunch in the Elgin Area


The number one reason why I think you should go to brunch is that there are so many different choices. You could have waffles, pancakes, bacon, a sandwich, or a breakfast burrito. Plus, you’ll be full for most of the day.

The Elgin area has great spots that offer terrific brunch options! I’ve personally tried Benedict’s Eggs and More for brunch. I tried their California Club Panini with fresh fruit. It hit the spot. Between the three of us that stopped by for brunch we ordered the soup of the day, fruit, a panini, an omelet, and a fruit crepe.  All were a variety of options that left us feeling full.

Look at the list below for the place that is nearest to you or that offers the most appetizing menu for you. For instance, Sweet Berry Cafe offers a gluten free menu and the Measuring Cup is known for its breakfast pizzas.
