Breakfast and Brunch in Lake County

How to Upgrade Your Brunch-fast Experience in the land of lakes

We’re taking a page out of Beyoncé’s book, so, "partner, let me upgrade you, flip a new page. Introduce you to some new things and upgrade you.”

This is perhaps the most significant decision of your life as you rub those crusty eyes after a heavy week of working hard for the money. The menus are seriously loaded to make you feast like a king or queen. And of course, then there’s also bacon (you can’t not have bacon).

So what do you pick to eat in that awkward time span between breakfast and lunch as your stomach stirs restlessly, awaiting your decision? Do you go the route where your plate is doused in maple syrup and other sweet glorious treats? Do you pack on the protein complemented with salty delights? Our advice is all of the above.

Indulge in the options Primo Italian American Cuisine or The Chocolate Sanctuary in Gurnee on the weekend. Wake up with a morning hungry tummy? Head to southern Lake County for the unique cuisine from Disotto Italian and Miramar Bistro in Highwood on Saturdays and Sundays. Westbound, Beelow's Steakhouse in Lake Zurich and Lindy's Landing in Wauconda have weekend brunch selections fit for a hefty appetite. Or, head to Libertyville for a daily dose of breakfast treats from Townee Square and WildBerry Libertyville.

Breakfast and brunch are at your fingertips at all corners of Lake County. There is no shame in visiting them on consecutive days – we support your decision..Have your most important and first meal of the day in the land of lakes!
