Sun Rey Cafe is a breakfast and lunch spot in Wicker Park that has pretty good food and an immense amount of chicken decor. Despite what all the poultry might lead you to believe, the menu isn't chicken-focused, with dishes like shrimp and grits and pancakes. But the best things here are the few Filipino ones influenced by the owner’s time spent in the Philippines. Their Manila breakfast comes with fatty longanisa and two eggs paired with fragrant garlic rice, while their pancit with chicken and vegetables has a nice balance of saltiness and citrus. Since there aren’t many weekday breakfast spots in the area, Sun Rey Cafe is a great addition to the neighborhood for anyone looking for a standard plate of eggs, or if you want a quiet brunch spot where you won’t encounter people guzzling bottomless mimosas.
