Brunch at Lula Cafe, Chicago IL

We got a recommendation for Lula Cafe as a great spot for a Saturday Brunch. Located in the Logan Square area of Chicago, this spot was a bit hipstery but had al fresco seating (of which we could not partake because it was full when we got there). We were seated indoors right away and were presented with a brunch menu that did include a few items that looked interesting. The people seated around us seemed to be enjoying their surroundings and the food. We enjoyed the environment and the food was ok, but it was nothing to write home about, on the whole.

Vegetable Miso Soup $5
A tasty, if standard, miso, packed with oddly shaped cuts of veggies which made it a tad difficult to eat.

Roast Pork with Scrambled Eggs, Queso Fresco, Cornbread, Beans and Salsa Verde $11.95
This sounded way better on the menu that it was in actuality. The eggs were light and fluffy and the pickled onions were good, but the pork itself was a tad dry, the cornbread was so sweet it was inedible and the beans were sort of hard.

Lox Bagel with the Works $10
A bit expensive for a bagel. There was only enough cream cheese for 1/2 the bagel and the veggies were cut far too thick.

Housemade Pork Sausage Patties $3.75
