Chicago Trip - Fox & Obel

There is an awesome specialty market near where my grandparents live called Fox & Obel. In addition to prepared foods, fresh meat and seafood, vegetables, and specialty products, they have a cafe. SP and I love going there for breakfast when we're in town so we stopped in on Sunday morning. He always goes for the breakfast panini:

... made with crusty bread stuffed with scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese. Breakfast potatoes come alongside. I love their Cobb omelet:

... stuffed with chicken, tomato, scallion, apple-wood smoked bacon, blue cheese and avocado. It comes with the same breakfast potatoes and choice of toast (I got an English muffin with jam). I also had a fresh-squeeze orange juice. If we lived in the city we'd be here all the time on weekends. Great food and it's fun to sit by the window and people-watch while you read the newspaper.
Pin It!


  1. Now that looks like my kind of restaurant! I have cousins that live in the greater Chicago area, I'll have to check out Fox & Obel the next time we get up there for a visit. Thanks for posting the review and pics.

  2. This is definitely my kind of food. I love the panini and the potatoes. Yuuuuum.

  3. Kylie - Definitely check it out the next time you're in the area.

    Melissa - They are one of the few places I know who can do breakfast potatoes well.

  4. Yeah, you can see it. Awesome color.
