If you have a brunch bucket list for restaurants around Chicago, make sure to add Haymarket Pub and Brewery to that list. Whether you are nursing a hangover or just getting the weekend started, the West Loop haunt is a one-stop-shop for all your weekend brunch needs! Below are a few of our go-to orders:
The Chorizo Benedict ($13) is not your typical bennie. The savory dish starts with two of the best house made biscuits in the neighborhood supporting house chorizo, poached eggs, hollandaise and sliced jalapeño. A corned beef and potato hash is piled nicely by its side.
Pizza for breakfast? Yes, indeed! Have a slice (or more) of the Bacon and Potato ($13) brunch pizza and you won’t regret it. Garlic béchamel scatters across roasted golden potatoes, bacon, shaved red onion and a fried egg. Break open the egg yolk and spread it around for a perfect bite on each slice!
Offered as a side or full meal, the French Toast ($6/$11) cannot be missed. Thick slices of challah bread are egg battered and fried, drizzled with caramel sauce and paired with seasonal jelly and maple syrup.
Cure your hangover with other brunch specials like the Buttermilk-Cheddar Biscuit ($6) with spicy sausage country gravy on another yummy Haymarket biscuit; Chimichurri Fries ($8) topped with spicy mayo, a sunny side duck egg and cotija cheese; or keep it simple with the Omelet ($12) with a choice of 2 ingredients, toast and a pastrami potato hash.
If you want to start or keep drinking, the pub has plenty of beers to pair with your favorite weekend meal thanks to award-winning brew master, Pete Crowley. Or have some creative fun with the Bloody Bar ($10), sip on a Mimosa ($9) or energize with a can of Cutwater Horchata Cold Brew ($10 for a 12oz can) featuring Fugu Vodka, cold brew coffee, cream liqueur, cinnamon and vanilla at 12.5% ABV.
Haymarket Pub and Brewery is on the corner of Randolph and Halsted in the West Loop. The pub is open Sunday through Friday 11am-2am and Saturday 11am-3am. Brunch is served from 11am-3pm on the weekends.
