If you’re heading south, stop by Lumes Pancake House for brunch! The service is fast, the coffee plentiful, and the orchard peach crepes make you wish you could eat breakfast three meals a day. We’ve been twice and can’t wait to go back for more!

  1. As a long time lurker, I just want to say that I really love your podcast. Even though I don’t live in Chicago or anywhere near it, I still love hearing about the different places you dine and dream about going there too.
    Thanks for the great podcasts and I am enjoying the new audio quality.

  2. Thanks Rose! And thanks for noticing the change in production values. Once a year Bridget and I hunker down and try to improve the sound quality, and I think we may have actually achieved something good.

  3. I can’t remember if I mentioned that C and I went to Lumes prior to our most recent trip down to Bev-Art for bottling “A Noir Hope”.
    It was very good, although the waitress admitted the corned beef hash was not home made so I didn’t order it.
    Hawaiian omelette was very good, and C got the peach crepes which were tasty and bountiful.
    But I guess I will have to go to the OPH a couple of blocks away for corned beef hash.
