Welcome to Kanela Breakfast Club! Lakeview's newest Breakfast spot that you don't want to miss out on! "Kanela" is the Greek word for cinnamon, which you'll find plentiful on the menu at this Lakeview breakfast and lunch spot. Deep earth tones, wrap-around seating and eye-pleasing geometric wallpaper are found throughout the space, creating a mellow vibe for a mellow breakfast or brunch. On the menu, you'll find local, organic and seasonal items such as portobello mushroom Benedict or bacon waffles with bourbon caramel. They also have lunchier sandwich options, from tuna salad w/ Sriracha aioli and giardiniera, to duck breast slathered with creamy horseradish/onion confit/creme de cassis, to a lamb burger with tzaziki, kalamatas, and whipped feta, which was kind of predictable given how easily it crumbles.Julius Meinl coffee and tea is served alongside fresh-baked pastries and homemade soups. It's BYOB for now, but once a liquor license is granted, you can plan on sipping some refreshing breakfast bevvies. Hope to see you soon at Kanela Breakfast Club!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Restaurant seemed short handed. Had to wait a while to be seated and order taken because very few staff on the floor. Jul 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Service was very good. May 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by We had the light delicious oversized donut holes as a breakfast app. They were awesome and the waiter made that recommendation. Mar 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The atmosphere and service were nice. The crab cake was overly breaded, greasy and I there were no actual pieces of crab. Mar 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food and service were excellent. We will definitely go back again. The only reason I am giving a good rather than excellent was because of the hostess. They don't take reservations and we waited an hour to be seated. She told us 30-40minutes and kept seating parties of two where two tables could have been combined. It was cold outside and no place to wait. She offered the bar when it opened and before we could get our group together she seated another group. Thank goodness the food was excellent and Zac the waiter was great. Nov 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very fresh ingredients and all natural delivered great favors. Nov 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by we were told there was a 20 minute wait upon arrival so we stayed. 40 minutes later we are NOT seated and we are in the way, place is small, and have waiters continuosly asking us to make room. To make matters worse the hostess kept seating people that arrived after us (5 in total). Finally, one of the waiters pointed to us and told her to give us the next table. Had we not had our 4 year old son who was starving we would have left to McDonalds. Will NOT recommend this location. Oct 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good food and service. Nice atmosphere Oct 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food was great and the portions were large. Not completely toddler-friendly since there were only two high chairs and both were in use when we arrived so it was a little difficult. Oct 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by We were sat right next to the server station and could see into the kitchen, so definitely not the best seats in the house. The food was good overall. Except my smoothie was room temperature and the roasted potatoes were definitely over-seasoned. My friend loved his blueberry pancakes and the people next to us got French toast, which looked very good. Sep 29, 2014
