This place is inside the Pittsfield Building, and I'm glad I found it via Yelp! The house corned beef was to die for, and getting it in the hash skillet was a great choice. The portion was satiating and the service was lovely and friendly....More

We had breakfast here based upon our hotel staff recommendation. Breakfast for two, including a soda, came to $20. I had croissant with grilled onion, bacon, cheese and eggs...super yummy. Skip the easy to find tourist spots and stop here.

Nothing fancy here, just a straightforward diner where you can get a nicely prepared breakfast with large portions and fast, friendly service. Very convenient if you're downtown in the Loop. It's in the lobby of a tall building, with counter or table service inside or...More

We live in the loop and visit here frequently before going to language class. The waitress are quick and efficient. I particularly like the 2x2x2. The pancakes are cooked just right as are the eggs

Was looking for a traditional American diner breakfast and we certainly got it. Super quick service and food hit the spot. It's pretty difficult to find as it in the middle of a buildings lobby but worth the hunt!

We arrived very early in the morning to the Pittsfield hotel and could not check in, so we had breakfast at this indoors cafe. Well attended and good basic type breakfast for a reasonable price.

Good food, good service, decent prices. Definitely worth checking out, but it is a little hard to find. Basic breakfast fare, but done well. I haven't been back because it is a little out of my way, but if I find myself near there again,...More

Not easy to find, but well worth trying. It's a very quaint old fashioned American diner, and also has outside seating in the courtyard, which is in the centre of the Pittsfield building. Whilst here we noticed a great many locals using this cafe, which...More

Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
