Although it may look like a typical old-fashioned diner, Ann Sather is actually a Chicago institution. Named after its founder, who established this original Andersonville location in 1945, the Swedish restaurant has now expanded to include two smaller cafés. At the flagship diner, behind a yellow and royal blue façade, diners settle into simple wooden chairs, surrounded by original folk art from Scandinavian artist Sigmund Arseth. During breakfast hours, the famous cinnamon rolls are a must, but patrons also enjoy the eggs Benedict and authentic Swedish pancakes with lingonberries. The lunch menu offers sandwiches, salads, and a traditional Swedish sampler.
Arrive before 11 a.m. if you’re hoping to nab a table for Ann Sather's popular weekend brunch.
