The Flavor Table

The Eagle and I came across this (BO) business by accident called The Flavor Table. They’re located on Florence.  So we went in and tried their breakfast.  It was cool.  The price didn’t bother me and the decor fit their theme, a Louisiana feel.  They have the typical photos on the wall, beads in the corner, flowers on the table, everything is red and purple and the waiters are pleasant offering great customer service.  They offer catering, take out, no reservations, there’s street parking and you’ll pay a typical $12 for your meal.  Oh and I’ve only been there twice and I just learned they have a little patio eating area in the back.  I’ll try it out next time whenever I’m around.  I think I saw about three tables back there surround by umbrellas and additional covering for added privacy.  Simple area for a small group of maybe 10 who want some fresh air and privacy.  Keep in mind it’s in a residential area.

So the first time I went there I ordered the Peach Cobbler French Toast.  I thought it was going to be smothered in yummy sauce with juicy peaches, but instead they offered the cobbler in a side dish and the french toast on its own plate.  I was a little disappointed.

Pictured above is what I ordered the second time we visited.  It’s their Caramel French Toast.  Maybe I’m asking for too much but I could have used a tad more of a thicker sauce or syrup.  It was simply caramel poured on top.  So they lack creativity, but the food was still good enough for myself to return in time.

The Eagle usually gets items such as rice, eggs and salmon croquettes of which I guess I need to learn how to make.  This is his plate pictured to the left.  He said he really enjoyed his Shrimp and Crab Omelet.  I was pleased for I hate to have him upset with his meal.  It cost about $17.

 

 

All and all the place is fine.  If you’re in the area, try them out for yourself.  I may not drive across town just to eat here, but if in the area I would definitely continue to support.

Best Breakfast in Chicago :)

I love my Eagle so much.  (He’s the boyfriend remember)  Well, he took us to Chicago simply to dine at varied restaurants for my blog…ok fine and to also visit family.  We literally visited a new spot each day for every meal of the day <sigh of gratitude> HE’S AMAZING! (picture me smiling, doing turning paddle turns while tossing confetti)

First up was Batter & Berries.  This (B.O.) spot was and is a “must visit”.  Known for their french toast, I decided to order the ‘Flight of French Toast’ which is their sample platter offering four-five varied flavors such as (in photo order) Taffy Apple, Lemon Curd, Caramel Pecan, Strawberry and Blueberry.
