This time of year, the promise of a semi-sweet, fluffy grilled breakfast treat is about the only thing worth getting out from under the covers for. Though our fair city has an embarrassment of breakfast and brunch riches, these five take the (hot) cake when it comes to that quintessential morning staple.

Michael and Tara Gallina may be known for their plant-forward fine-dining prowess, but their pancake game at their University City eatery Winslow’s Table (7213 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-7559) shows that they are equally adept at daytime comfort fare. Malty, fluffy and topped with fresh berry compote, butter and syrup, they are perfection of the form.
