Howie's Breakfast: No Frills, No Gimmicks, but Solid

Today we went to Howie's (1310 S. Wabash) for breakfast and had a solid experience. The place is the epitome of a good, but basic local spot. You're not paying for fancy, cute or trendy decor, you're simply paying for good food.

Although we went for breakfast, you can get anything on the menu, anytime of the day. Most of us went with standard breakfast fare of eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and pancakes, but one weirdo in the group decided it would be a good idea to get a caesar salad for breakfast. Regardless, everyone agreed that the food was good, but pretty standard (including the salad).

However, you can't beat the price in the area. Bongo Room and Yolk tend to overshadow Howie's in the eyes of the South Loop breakfast/brunch crowd, but those places are usually very busy and more expensive. If you want a quick and simple but basic breakfast, check out Howie's.
