Bacon-Chocolate Pancakes at Flo in Noble Square

bacon chocolate pancakes at flo chicago

With our office being so close to Flo, it’s no wonder we end up eating there at least 3 times a week. And even though we eat there so often, there’s enough good food on the menu that you never have to eat the same thing twice in one week, if you choose; of course I always eat the same things. You can get anything from burgers and fries to eggs and toast, tacos and salsa to vegan rosemary soup… they pretty much have it all, and it’s all good.

The first time I visited Flo was right before I started my new job. The first thing on the menu that I noticed was bacon-chocolate pancakes. That combination of food sounds like one of the greatest things on earth, however at that point in time I wasn’t really feeling like pancakes, so I passed. Every time since that first time, those pancakes have eyeballed me from the back of the menu, just begging me to order them. I resisted temptation, until this week. I couldn’t take the pressure anymore, I had to try them.

Is it weird to eat pancakes while on lunch from your job? Probably. Did I care? Absolutely not, I was going to eat the shit out of those pancakes and enjoy every minute of it. After taking my first bite I questioned why it had taken me so long to order them. They were both sweet and salty, while being fluffy yet slightly crispy on the tops. These pancakes were incredible. If Jesus eats pancakes, this is what he eats, no doubt about it. I don’t even know what else to say about them, they were just plain delicious. So if you’re ever in Noble Square and are looking for some awesome food, breakfast or otherwise, make sure to hit up Flo. And if you really want to tame your sweet tooth, go during weekend brunch and order the Fruity Pebble French Toast… I might make a trip down here on the weekend just to give that a try.
