Chicago is warming up and we are looking forward to basking in the sunshine during our favorite time of year, patio season. Patios are popping up all over town, and we have compiled our favorite brunch spots that also boast patios so we can all cheers to the weekend in style, and in sunshine.
New Brunch On The Block
The Bitches brunched hard at Rhyme or Reason’s bottomless brunch last month, and all of us raved about the unique entrees and delicious cocktails. Rhyme or Reason has set up the patio and opened the glass retractable doors to allow for maximum sunshine and groovy summertime vibes. Check out our brunch review, here, and give them a call to reserve your spot on the patio this weekend with mimosas and delicious brunch. Rhyme or Reason – 1938 W Division St, Chicago, IL 60622.
Games & Brunch
When we tried the brunch at Parson’s Chicken and Fish, it was too hot to enjoy the patio. But, since temperatures haven’t hit scorching temperatures, we are ready for brunch and giant jenga on the patio of Parson’s Chicken and Fish. Parson’s is the perfect place to take a group to brunch, as it has a variety of food, beverages, brews, and games for everyone to enjoy. Read our full review, here. Parson’s Chicken and Fish – 2952 W. Armitage Ave. Chicago, IL 60647.
