Our Favorite Comfort Foods for Fall in Chicago

 In Our Blog

It’s fall in Chicago! As the weather continues to cool, and everyone is getting into the seasonal spirit, we thought we would too by sharing some of our favorite fall-themed and hearty comfort foods from our menu.  While we and our loyal customers know that you can’t go wrong with any of the items on our carefully curated menu, there are a few standouts that will definitely hit the spot and warm the soul as we step into this candy-filled Halloween holiday.  So, instead of reaching for those extra bags of candy that you’re saving “for the trick-or-treaters” (we know who they’re really for!), come have a sweet or savory delight with us at Chicago Waffles!
