I lived in Minneapolis until about four years ago and my favorite place for breakfast was the Uptowner. At least I think that's what the name was. Maybe the Uptown Diner? It was on Hennepin, across the street from Calhoun Square and not too far from the Uptown Bar. I loved their hashbrowns and omlettes. I remember the HUGE portions that I managed to almost finish but probably could feed a family of four. I plan a trip back to Minneapolis in June but can't wait that long to eat some great food like the Uptowner. I was wondering if in all of your travels if anyone has come across a place that serves very similar food in the Chicago area. Please let me know. Thanks!
