Part of me doesn’t want to review this restaurant… I want to keep it my secret. Victory’s Banner, simply put, is one of the best breakfast houses in Chicago…period. Omelets are light and fluffy and made with Phil’s Free Range (Hormone Free) eggs. The owner told me that he learned how to make his omelets from the immortal Lou Mitchell himself. (He didn’t know that I was going to review the restaurant.)

Our party had 3 different dishes. Together we had a Pesto/Goat Cheese, another egg dish called “Satisfaction-Promise” and the French Toast which was touted as “Award Winning.” All of the dishes made good on their promises. Satisfaction Promise is a scrambled egg dish with spinach, sun dried tomatoes and feta. The egg dishes come with fresh homefries and a bread which tasted close to homemade but I learned that it comes from Red Hen Bakery, (another one of my favorite spots).
But the killer was the French Toast… a light bread in a batter made with cream (not milk) and orange marmalade, served with peach butter and real, yes I said REAL maple syrup. We also enjoyed fresh-squeezed OJ and the coffee was EXCELLENT.

Other items include an array of pancakes, waffles, uppama (an Indian Hot Cereal) and a special board of items. If a member of your party isn’t in the mood for breakfast, lunch is also available from 11:00am until closing. Real homemade soups, salads, wraps… there is definitely something to eat.

Oh… did I mention Victory’s Banner was vegetarian? Don’t worry, you won’t miss the meat. I didn’t at all. The entire experience is bathed in a spiritual atmosphere. The restaurant is owned by a student of Meditation Master Sri Chinmoy and he had definitely made the place uplifting. It is immaculately clean, light and the servers are quite good. The menu says that the restaurant exists for one reason… to give joy. They have certainly succeeded with this reviewer. It will become one of my regular stops. Victory’s Banner is open 8am-3pm everyday but is closed TUESDAY which is a bit unusual. It is non-smoking.
