What happens when you get a group of amazing blogger babes together and you all go out? Brunch at one of Chicago’s most beautiful spots, that’s what.
The wonderful Dasha of Windy City Wardrobe got this great group together to share a meal, meet each other, and just commiserate over being a blogger in this city of ours over some amazing food. We met up at The Allis inside Soho House.
Left to right in the photo above we’ve got Sabrina of Styles by Sab, Lindsey of Butter & Type, Dasha of Windy City Wardrobe, me, and Jalpa of Samosa Pop. We also had Michaela of The Deep End Review, Dasha’s wonderful wife and our photographer for the day. It was so great to get together with other bloggers where we could really chat with each other about all things blogger and there was zero judgement over taking tons of photos (and standing on chairs to do so) and just being our blogger selves.
But let’s talk about The Allis for a second. Because oh my goodness.
This little photography haven is actually the lobby of Soho House and serves a very limited menu. Their brunch menu is less than 20 items and that includes pastries. But every single thing is so so good and $15 or less. So it’s perfect for those of us who have to brunch on a budget but still want to have a wonderful and delicious time. Between all of us, we sampled a hearty portion of the menu and I think it’s safe to say we all really enjoyed what we had to eat.
My favorite item was definitely The Allis Breakfast. It’s avocado, hard eggs, smoked salmon, tomatoes, and toast all for you to mix and match and mash and devour. I also highly recommend the grilled cheese (there’s goats cheese on this, people!) and their lattes which are as delicious as they are beautiful. I definitely plan on going back very soon as it was so good.
I mean… I DO have a birthday coming up next month… (THIS IS A GIANT HINT!)
Beyond their brunch, The Allis is known for their afternoon tea which is served every single day and ridiculously popular. Definitely book in advance for that. Their lunch menu, equally small, is rumored to be wonderful as well. I’m convinced this place can do no wrong.
Now on to the photos!
