On the lighter side-Travel-Chicago, Illinois-7
As it happens with out plans when we are on vacation or have to go somewhere, this one was no exception. We were so tired from the wedding when we went to sleep at about 2.00 A.M in the morning that we were not going to be awake by six even if we had put up our alarm and that is exactly what happened. We woke up around 10 in the morning still tired but had to go and packed out stuff and were out by around 11. Now before going on the journey back home, we had to eat breakfast and we decided to a big fast food chain and were completely surprised to find that they stop serving breakfast at 10.30 since the lunch time starts at that time. We thought it was 11.00 but this was ridiculous, who wants to eat lunch at 10.30 in the morning even if you have taken your breakfast at 5.00 in the morning. But to each his/her own. Well after a little search we decided on a small diner and ordered our breakfast of coffee, pan cakes, hash browns and to our surprise found them to be great food. I Don’t know the town but it is near Bloomingdale near Chicago and it is called Bentley's Pan cakes ( Disclosure: I am not promoting the diner and I am not getting paid to promote them, just voicing my opinion). These small diners should be checked out from time to time since they may have some hidden gem that you could miss and sometimes they are better than the fast food chains that so many people frequent.
