The Skiff is a new restaurant in Ravenswood, which opened in January on 205 Washington street, in the former Greasy Spoon Barbecue location. The little shop has a few kinks to work out since it’s just starting out. They are opened Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Their menu is full of yummy breakfast food; waffles, crepes, fresh fruit smoothies, muffins, eggs, and more. The most expensive item on the menu is a $6.67 steak and cheese crepe. The average price for their food is $3.79, you could easily bring $30 to get something from each section of the menu if you wanted too. I ordered a strawberry cream filled crepe overall it was pretty good but it was smallish. I suggest ordering more than one crepe so you don’t go home hungry. The Mango Delight smoothie is definitely a favorite of mine. Overall this is a great place to eat if you love cheap food.
