Sometimes you just want good food at reasonable prices with good service. Had a late breakfast/lunch on a Saturday in October. Nice friendly waitress and prompt service. Had skirt steak sandwich and my son had a Greek Omelette, both were very good. Place was very clean, old school, comfortable interior decor. Definitely a go to place for a decent breakfast... More

Just great breakfast! Patty was our waitress and she rocks. We had the skillets. Other options include omelette, huge multigrain pancakes, French toast. Great bread choices for toast. Wait staff is very friendly. Endless coffee and morning news on the tv. Chicago landmark.

We stopped in for breakfast after an early shopping trip. We weren't expecting much, but it was really good. Service was fast and food was tasty. I had the chopped steak skillet. I highly recommend it! I had enough food to bring home and eat later in the day.

Cheeky service and cheap breakfast. Great hangover food. Chicken and waffles were basic but filling. The skillets look amazing.

My husband thought the Greek omelet could use more Feta, no other complaints. Generous portions and great prices. 3 kids and 2 adults for under $50!

I discovered this place when I was walking and needed a cup of coffee...Seven years later, I am STILL eating here. They have THE BEST PANCAKE IN ALL OF CHICAGO. Delectable, thick and each bite makes you want another, and another, and another. Francisco has got to be one of the best short order cooks around and really has this... More

This place is great for breakfast. Old fashioned diner restaurant with waitresses that get it right and get it quick. Had my coffee within a minute of sitting down. Really nice filling breakfast at a very reasonable price. Probably a dozen Chicago police in there enjoying breakfast too so I felt very safe! :)

Very big and tasty omelette with a bit of variety. I had ordered 3 breakfast sets as takeaway for my wife, daughter and my self. We could finish only about 2 sets as the potions are very big. Very friendly service.
