Breakfast Chicago-Style
Donna Fenton           
Breakfast Chicago-Style
  One of the great joys we discovered on our recent United Cargo HQ trip (poet Carl Sandburg immortalized Chicago the 'City of Broad Shoulders') must be included into your routine.
  We figure what is the sense of visiting a great city; like passing through a garden, not smelling the flowers along the way?
  There is this fabulous breakfast joint a block away from Union Station, two blocks from The Willis Tower, downtown in the Chicago Loop, that is not to be missed, having been situate at an address anchoring the fabled Highway Route 66 since 1923.
  Once upon a time Route 66 was the only roadway that spanned the continental USA before the interstate highways were created.
  The place is Lou Mitchell's located at 565 West Jackson Boulevard.
  Today some 96 years later, Lou Mitchell's still serves the best breakfast you have ever had in your life.
  The place opens early but closes at 3 pm, and is always packed but fear not.
  On the case of getting eager diners seated and into the magic of pancakes and fresh squeezed orange juice, is Donna Fenton.
  Donna has been handling the house and the crush of people that spill out onto the sidewalk, filling up outside tables at Lou Mitchell's for the past 31 years.
  Donna greets guests with a wonderfully warm smile and the immediate promise of good things to come as she invites you to help yourself to small homemade doughnuts while you wait.
  The dining experience is a bit cheek-to-jowl but the poached eggs Florentine float by like butterflies on a summer's day.
  Through it all is Donna, backed up by an all-star, give-and-take serving staff that makes for fun and food, and an indelible taste of Chicago that can last in memory forever.
  Don't miss Lou Mitchell's!
