Alek's Jazz Brunch in Lake Bluff provides good food and live jazz music for a great price.

Deerpath Inn brunch is the best

Thanks for your votes, Jill and Margaret. How about the rest of you? Where do you go for brunch on the weekend? Is it Deerpath? Alek's?

Deerpath Inn was really good!

The Grille on Laurel in Lake Forest is our favorite local place for brunch. Great tasting, just $14.95 for adults. Homemade ice cream, bread pudding, and chocolate dipped stawberries complete the event.

It's the Grill both in great food and price! The Deepath brunch has become very overpriced so we were glad to try the Grill on Laurelas an alternate. Try the Grill!

Well worth the price though. Jumbo shrimp, love the sushi, prime rib and leg of lamb!

Thanks for recommending the Grille!

The Anderson Family sent in an email with this recommendation: "Alex's is a great casual place in Lake Bluff. However, the best brunch in town for classic ambiance, great food, and very reasonable, yummy food, is The Grille, in Lake Forest!"

Deer Path Inn, Lake Forest best brunch in my opinion. Price is $38 but you get the best selections.
