Victory's Banner...Go. You will eat healthy foods, organic foods, and whole foods full of flavor. I was in the area for 5 days and ate here 3 times and got food to go. Yes, I am a fan. I wish it was here in DC area.
The staff is kind and attentive. The restaurant is smallish but they accommodated my party of 10 no problem. Victory Banner always has plenty of patrons seated inside and outside, each of the 3 times I visited I was seated quickly.
Lemon lentil soup - divine, aromatic, delicious. So good I go it to go on another visit.
Pancakes with yogurt and fresh raspberry and tasty homemade granola - perfect pancakes--light, tasty...good, hearty breakfast.
Omelet: I made my own with spinach and mushrooms. Good omelet. Fabulous breakfast potatoes! Hearty bread served as side was good, it also came with the lentil soup.
What I tasted and looooved:
Breakfast Burrito: A tortilla stuffed with 2 scrambled eggs, mushroom, red onion, red peppers, gouda, black beans and sour cream. Organic salsa & brown rice on the side.
I needed more days in Chicago because on my next visit I was going to order my very own Breakfast Burrito. I had tasted it on one occasion, then shared about 1/3 of one on another visit. They are big and delicious...not salty, you can taste the individual ingredients.
Victory's Banner was recently voted in top 18 of Chicago's best brunch spots, but it often makes #1 on Chicago's best breakfast/brunch lists. The praise and acknowledgements are well deserved, plus Victory's Banner is a great lunch spot, too.
