If you’re looking for a breakfast sandwich good enough to inspire a new poetry section in your diary, head to Ciao Gloria in Prospect Heights. Their PEC (prosciutto, egg, and cheese) comes on a brioche bread roll with pesto and arugula and it’s one of the reasons we get out of bed on Saturday mornings They also have toast options with things like ricotta and avocado on top, plus a large selection of baked goods. You can order at the counter to-go, but you might as well take a seat and look out of the big windows onto Vanderbilt ave.
