From the moment that Jim Murphy purchased Murphy's Bleachers, formerly known as Ray's Bleachers, in 1980, it became the center point for so much activity in the neighborhood - including serving as the relaxation point of choice for dozens of Chicago Cubs down through the years (Mark Grace, Rick Sutcliffe, Keith Moreland, Jody Davis, and Randy Myers to name just a few). Jim slowly expanded and re-invested in Murphy's, creating what is now widely recognized as the best sports bar in America that has been a Wrigleyville landmark since the 1930s.

Everything about Eggsperience Pancakes and Café is bright, warm, and sunny. Natural light floods the restaurant's eight locations, which sprinkle across Chicago and its suburbs like powdered sugar over a slice of French toast. Orange and yellow walls surround each dining room, and some locations have fireplaces, which make ideal places to sip Ghiradelli hot chocolate or espresso beverages. Even the food is colorful. Fresh fruits-either in solid or juice form-complement dishes such as Mediterranean omelette, baked in the French style and filled with a vibrant medley of spinach, tomatoes, olives, and imported feta cheese.

Located right across from the Iconic Wrigley Field.
