I stopped in for breakfast. I had a small wait for a table. I had a custom scrambler with grilled chicken and veggies. It was delicious. The service was very friendly and fast. I will be back.

Just what we needed on a post theater night breakfast!! Hanging with Cleveland our waiter who is from Florida living here working on his comedy.. for real.. he has an improv group and is trying to break into the business! So much fun meeting people when traveling. Also, the eggs Benedict were great. I added fresh spinach with hollandaise on... More

Went here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Need to get there by 10 or else the wait gets a bit long. Had the chance to sit immediately if we sat by the kitchen at the bar overlooking the "action". Glad we did. Brilliant experience watching the apparent chaos as all the food was prepped and served. Well worth the... More

There is always a waiting line, but it moves very quickly. The food is very good and priced right for what you get. You never leave hungry. Will return again.

Came here for breakfast after reading all the great reviews. The restaurant has a nice bar seating area for those who don't want to have a sit down table. Service was quick and friendly. I had their coffee, which was surprisingly good, and some fresh squeezed grapefruit. I tried the CA Omelette, no cheese, plus bacon with side of fruit... More

We enjoyed a copious breakfast here late in the morning. It almost wasn't so however, since what greeted us at the restaurant's 355 E. Ohio St address was a US Post Office. The restaurant's entrance is some distance away on the corner of N McClurg and E Grand. When we arrived, however, it was clear that the locals had had... More

One of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time and not all eggs. Mixture of healthy choices and the traditional pancakes and waffles. Plenty of food and all the fruit was very fresh (and we were there in January). The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely eat here again. Easy to walk to from Loews... More

Long wait for breakfast that was average at best. The service is just OK - long waits for coffee. The food was cold and there was no point in sending it back as the servers were too busy. There is another place a couple of blocks away that is much better. Don't waste your time at this place.

We were not sure what to expect at this place as we walked up and the line was literally out the door! Always a good sign that it is busy, but we were not sure if we wanted to wait out the line. However, we were pleasantly surprised and were seated within about 10 minutes of arriving! Since it was... More

The participate in No Wait which is such a plus as there was a huge crowd waiting to be seated. We were 24 in line and when we arrived it was down to 11. The food was excellent but portions are HUGE. I got the chilaquiles with chorizo. Excellent. Really should have asked for a side of their house made... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
