Today, I had one of the best breakfasts ever at Lakeside Inn at 110 Main Street in downtown Wauconda. This structure has been there since the turn of the 20th century. I heard that it was at one time a stage stop and for many years a hotel for visitors to Wauconda when it was a resort town for Chicagoans.
It is very rustic and has a great two story bar araa that looks straight out of the 1890s. You can also dine upstairs and even overlook the bar area.
Not your typical Applebees and worth a visit. The two egg skillet actually comes with four eggs, your choice. Then there is the homemade jam. Hard to beat.
