Kanela Breakfast Club Opens Second Location in Old Town

Banana split crêpes at Kanela

The Breakfast Club - no, not that one, the restaurant in Lakeview - opened its second location today. Kanela's new Old Town location seats 90 with an addition 14 on the patio that will launch in the spring. They will serve a similar menu with a few additions for the new neighbors, such as salmon benedict, fried egg sandwich, a housemade black bean burger and a wheat grass smoothie.

Owners Alexi Giannoulias and Chris Lardakis kept a few favorites on the menu though, like the bougasta (phyllo dough, lemon custard, berries) and loukoumades (fried dough, lemon-honey syrup, toasted walnuts). These may have something to do with those very Greek last names. Less ethnic options include Kanela’s signature breakfast burger, Kanela chip pancakes and the bacon waffle. If you bring a few friends, also consider feasting on flights of French toast.

Bonus! It is BYOB, with a $10 corkage fee, so bring some booze for mimosas with any of the juice blends. Or don’t bring friends, and bring a computer, because it offers free wi-fi and coffee from Julius Meinl.
