We originally went across the street to Giordano's, as one of the "places you have to eat at" in Chicago. The wait there was over an hour, so we decided to forgo pizza. Walking back across the street, we noticed this quaint little European-style place, and decided to take a chance. We were seated immediately by a very courteous hostess.... More

One of my favorite places! Breakfast, lunch, a cozy quaint dinner. The ginger peach iced tea is so addicting. Too many favorites to list. If dining for lunch the Pen Chicken salad made with spinach is incredibly balanced to the last bite. The patisserie is 5 star.

I finally got around to having dessert here (after looking in the display case as I was passing by on previous visits). The desserts look wonderful, but the flavor is mediocre. We split the banana brownie and chocolate cake and a hot chocolate. Sadly, nothing was better than average, especially at these prices. I am a dessert foodie, and had... More

We happened upon this wonderful place while walking back to our hotel and oh my. What a sweet place. We had coffee, and shared a few macarons, and a Raspberry Rose Macaron and some kind of tart--everything was delectable. The atmosphere is lovely. Nice place for a date.

Came for a weekend breakfast quite early well before 8am, yet by 8:30am the cafe restaurant was almost fully seated. The puff pastries were phenomenal - being spectacularly light and deliciously buttery. The breakfast items were all deliciously imagined; I had the vegetable hash which was really good - purple cabbage,maitake mushroom,roasted peppers, onions all lightly stir fried and served... More

Premises are small so it gets busy fast if you're not early and if you have a big party . The croissants are about the best in Chicago. Airy light and huge. The vegan hash is very good and the chicken popover is a huge serving of poached eggs and chicken and vegetables in an incredibly light brioche bun. Coffee... More

We were visiting Chicago for a family get away and our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant for Saturday brunch. It is a small casual bistro style French cafe where you can sit at separate or community tables. The breakfast choices were numerous and included fresh wholesome options. The coffee was rich and creamy. We ordered omelets, fresh fruit and assorted... More

If I hadn't just walked off the street in Chicago i would have said i was in a charming french cafe in Marseille. Stepping in, there is a bright atmosphere with people eating together on pinewood tables. The food is complex and uses uncommon ingredients/ recipes. The deserts were second to none. Two downsides: It's very busy it took us... More

Located next to Peninsula hotel, had breakfast there twice. Excellent food, nice people, good service. FYI, for singles they offer seating at a small table or at communal tables of ~ 6 seats & have newspapers available, which is a nice touch. I sat at a communal table with another middle aged couple.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
