Orange Ya Glad We Ate Here?

For someone who is trying to live a frugal lifestyle, spending $3.59 on coffee at breakfast goes against everything I now stand for.  I justified it by telling myself that we were on vacation and that dozens of people on Yelp who recommended this coffee couldn't be wrong.

Thank the Lord I splurged.  We ate breakfast at Orange on N Clark St (just down the street from our hotel) and it was absolutely awesome.  The orange-infused coffee I had was the best I have ever tasted.  Usually I have to add a little sweeter and a dash of creamer to my coffee, but I drank that entire pot black.  Yup, the whole pot.  If I was going to spend dang near $4 on coffee, I was going to get my money's worth.

On to the food.

Evan got the Cinamon Roll Pancakes.  As you may gather from the name, these bad boys were like a Cinabonn make into pancakes and then glued together with a pecan paste and slathers with a donut glaze.

You can't make this stuff up.  There's no way I could have eaten more than a few bites of them, but they were crazy good.

As for me, I decided to compliment my coffee with the Orange Rosemary French Toast.  It was a toss-up between these and the Spiced Chai French Toast.  Seriously, there were some great choices on this menu!

No syrup needed on these!

Orange was a little on the pricey side when you consider the coffee, the fresh-squeezed juice ($3.50), and the entrees themselves were about $9.  Still, we really enjoyed it!  Stop in for breakfast if you're in the River North district on your next trip to Chicago!
