Chicago, IL 60607
Neighborhoods: Greektown, Near West Side, West Loop
I stayed in Greektown while I was in Chicago. Upon checking in at the hotel, I asked the front desk to recommend a good breakfast place. The guy recommended the hotel’s restaurant and this local breakfast joint. So I tried both. The hotel’s breakfast is slightly better than normal hotel breakfasts, but Meli was really great. It’s just 2 blocks away from the UIC/Halsted station. Meli was already packed when I got there around 8am, so be ready for a wait!
The daily menu has lots of interesting options. The regular menu is also very extensive.
Started off with some hot cocoa
Jams and whipped cream for the toast came in a cute little platter
My breakfast: corn & crab omelet. Goat cheese and asparagus went surprisingly well with the corn and crab. The portion was huge! Even the potatoes were nicely seasoned and not dry. Also comes with toast! $12.95
