Known around town as the “Breakfast Queen,” Ina Pinkney fed Chicagoans for thirty-three years, first out of a small bakery, then from her beloved breakfast nook in the West Loop. When Ina, who survived polio as an infant, began suffering the effects of post-polio syndrome, she decided to close the doors of her celebrated establishment in 2013. The documentary Breakfast at Ina’s offers a glimpse into Ina’s extraordinary life while chronicling the last days of the restaurant.
