LAKEVIEW — A South Loop brunch spot is expected to open a second location in Lakeview on Friday with a full coffeehouse and a dinner menu, the owner said.
Waffles, which opened in August at 1400 S. Michigan Ave., plans to debut its Lakeview location at 3617 N. Broadway. The restaurant at Broadway and Addison serves — you guessed it — waffles, including red velvet waffles and waffle benedict.
The menu also includes other breakfast items such as chipped beef hash and eggs and omelettes.
The Lakeview Waffles will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday to include dinner hours and will offer additional dinner entrees such as a stuffed burger, said owner Alex Hernandez.
On Sundays it will be open 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The South Loop location is only open for brunch.
Hernandez said Lakeview is a busier neighborhood, so "There's opportunity here for dinner hours."
The Lakeview Waffles coffeehouse, called Waffles Cafe, will have pastries, flavored hot chocolates and cappucinos made with Intelligentsia. The restaurant was named "best new breakfast" in Time Out Chicago's 2012 Eat Out Awards.
