Pochos describes itself as “your friendly neighborhood brunch restaurant” and that’s exactly what it is. The menu at this Mexican cafe in Pilsen is mostly made up of sweet and savory brunch dishes, like caramel french toast or chorizo eggs benedict, plus sandwiches—including a tasty Cuban sandwich with pickled mustard seed aioli that we’d be happy to eat at 10am or 4pm (when Pochos closes). During the week, it’s the kind of cozy yet fun place you want to stay and hang, with colorful decor and upbeat music played at a volume that’s still a vibe but doesn’t force you to yell across the table. But Pochos is extremely busy on the weekends, so expect a long wait if you visit at prime brunch time.
