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

Friendly staff at counter to take our name. Our ten minute wait was more like twenty five. Food was okay, but 2 of the 3 orders arrived cold (pancakes and an egg dish) Not sure why the long line ups, wasn't worth the wait.

Was not sure what to expect, but this was by far one of the sweetest breakfast I have had, but just the way I like it!

We stayed at a hotel nearby and this is a great, cheaper option for breakfast! It's always a must for me when I come to Chicago, and the two mornings I went this visit it didn't disappoint once again! Huge breakfast, very affordable, and great kids options!

After a night on the beers I couldn't recommend a better place to fuel up for the day. The food was very affordable, very tasty and the serving sizes were massive! Opting for the spicy skillet with a side of pancakes as an Australian I expected a small serve of both but boy was I surprised. The pancakes - the... More

Yolk is a favorite of mine when visiting Chicago. The breakfast selection is great. This time I settled on a Scrambler with tomato, kale, goat cheese and caramelized onions. I chose the fresh fruit (a lot of tasty fruit!) and an English muffin. It all was delicious. Definitely a place to try if you like something different for breakfast.

We were a group of 8 women. We were able to sit together and we all ordered and enjoyed very tasty food. A fun place to be!

Excellent breakfast. Nice atmosphere. Great menu selections for a reasonable price. My husband ordered the special sweet potato hash and really liked it. Order a cinnamon roll-it's warm, covered in frosting and absolutely delicious. I had the stone cut oatmeal and it was very good.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
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.
