A Breakfast Sandwich at Under the Umbrella


In our eternal quest for the city’s best breakfast sandwich, I ordered the “Shannon” on whole wheat at Under the Umbrella Cafe and Bakery in Congress Park. What arrived was a buttery scramble of eggs and cheese, stirred with diced onion, spinach, and tomato. The coffeeshop’s satisfying sandwich is made all the better with the addition of a foamy cappuccino.

Bonus: Grab one of the muffins (baked daily) to go. Favorites include the blueberry or pumpkin, both of which make a tasty afternoon snack.
