we capped off our convention visit to chicago by stopping at karyn's cooked for brunch (we had karyn's the first night for dinner, too… bookends!). we'd never been there for brunch before, but there were tons of great options. i had another smoothie (peach-banana this time), an order of banana french toast, and my husband and i split an order of potato pancakes (in addition to his scramble/skillet breakfast). everything was really tasty! we left feeling full, but not uncomfortable. i also snagged a gigantic cookie for the train ride home. thank you, chicago, for feeding us so well!
