The season of day-drinking is upon us and Chicagoans couldn’t be more ready to enjoy our Sundays in style. The quaint neighborhood of Roscoe Village offers a perfect lineup of places to visit on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Be sure to get your fill at brunch before you kick off your crawl!

Orange on Roscoe

The first stop on your Roscoe Village tour has to be Orange on Roscoe. This brunch venue is home to one of the most creative menus in the city. You have to try Orange’s “Frushi” – a delicious fusion of fruit presented as sushi in a variety of ways. They’re also famous for their silver dollar “pancake flights,” with a special theme that changes weekly. Orange achieves a gourmet edge while still maintaining an unpretentious, low-key atmosphere.
