Southport Grocery & Café

3552 N. Southport
Chicago, IL, 60657, United States
TEL: (773) 665-0100

Leaving her job as a CPA to go to culinary school led Lisa Santos to open this half café, half specialty grocery store in Lakeview back in 2003. The café’s narrow layout means most of the seating is against the wall adjacent to the open kitchen, affording patrons excellent views of the culinary action. Hardwood floors, comfortable banquets, and large white lanterns also enhance the space, although many prefer the shaded patio during summertime. The modern American menu is most admired for breakfast favorites like the subtly sweet cupcake pancakes topped with vanilla sugar butter.

Insider Tip:

Arrive before 10 a.m. to avoid the brunch wait, which can be up to an hour.
