Serving Chicago since 2012…

Let me introduce you to Jaime Jara, the amazing owner, and chef of Breakfast House Chicago! Jaime's love for cooking began when he arrived in Chicago from Ecuador and started working in the restaurant industry. After a decade of perfecting his skills in the kitchen, Jaime decided to create a restaurant that would feel like home for everyone - a place where you could come with your loved ones or just by yourself to enjoy delicious, homemade food and chat with friendly staff.


Jaime's dream finally came true in 2012 when he opened his first location in the charming West Town neighborhood. With the unwavering support of his family and friends, Jaime opened his second location in Lake View six years later.


Jaime poured his heart and soul into creating a place where customers could savor a diverse menu, inspired by his years of experience and passion for cooking. From classic breakfast favorites to dishes with a Latin twist, Breakfast House Chicago offers something for everyone. Plus, their friendly and welcoming staff will make you feel right at home.


The pandemic was a tough time for everyone, and Breakfast House Chicago wasn't immune to its challenges. But the team persevered and even managed to open their third location in the Irving Park neighborhood in December 2020! With take-out and delivery as their only options, the team worked hard to continue serving up their delicious food to their loyal customers. And thanks to the support of those customers, they made it through one of the toughest times the service industry has ever faced. And that's not all! Just six months later, Breakfast House Chicago & Coffee Bar opened its doors in Wrigleyville as their fourth location, continuing their mission to provide great food and an amazing customer experience in a cozy, neighborhood setting. In 2022, they expanded even further by opening their fifth location in Belmont Heights, taking Breakfast House beyond the city limits of Chicago. They didn't stop there! In April of 2023, they proudly opened their sixth location in Belmont Cragin, bringing their amazing food and friendly service to even more people in the area.


At Breakfast House Chicago, family is at the heart of everything they do. Jaime's son Diego even came up with the restaurant's name when he was just 8 years old - talk about a creative family! The team at Breakfast House Chicago is dedicated to creating a community atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. And of course, they also take their food seriously! The team is always experimenting with new dishes, and they feature special plates every week to find the perfect additions to their menu. They've even successfully added some delicious vegan options!

If you're a fan of chicken sandwiches, you have to try Diego's Chicken Sandwich - it's one of their latest signature dishes! Diego had been dreaming up this recipe for a long time, and with the help of his dad Jaime, they created the perfect sandwich. Plus, with a mix of classic American breakfast options and Latin-inspired dishes, there's something for everyone to enjoy.


At Breakfast House Chicago, they believe that food brings people together, and they're dedicated to creating an atmosphere that feels like home. So, whether you're a regular or a first-time visitor, they'll always welcome you with a smile and a delicious meal.
