I love supporting local small businesses, and I’m always searching for that perfect Black-owned business where I can show my support. As a minority mompreneur myself, I know it’s important to pay it forward.
One of my favorite things to do is eat, and I am proud to say I am a foodie for life. That is why I am always in the gym! But I really enjoy trying different cuisines. I was told about this hidden gem on the South Side of Chicago, Love on the Blu. I guess technically, it is the suburb of Blue Island, and it just so happens I was born in this small suburb, so it is near and dear to my heart and my stomping grounds from when I was a kid. I recommend visiting this new establishment, if not for the food, DEFINITELY for the mimosas.
They specialize in serving specialty brunch. It’s a small quaint location perfect for small meetings and private parties. Their mouth-watering menu includes everything from jerk chicken alfredo omelet (like wow) to a traditional breakfast platter, but I chose to be adventurous. I had the lamb chops with eggs, spinach and cheesy hash brown. It was everything! I also tried the shrimp and grits. And don’t forget to order the Island Punch Mimosa. Enjoy!
If you are ever in the area or want to venture out, you won’t be disappointed.
Health and happiness. . .
