Love it! the ambiance and also service. Very attentive and great menu, except that the portion size is slightly too big (pancakes and also the potatoes in every dish). Too much wastage... but fantastic taste and we went there twice!

THE breakfast spot in Chicago (sorry Lou Mitchell). Huge portions of imaginative egg and other breakfast dishes, good coffee, attentive service. If you love breakfast (I do), this is your spot. If you go mid-morning, the meal will easily serve as your breakfast and lunch...More

Right around the corner from The Ivy, they had a lot of tables and while the food was fresh and delicious, we were in and out in 30 mins. Really big menu with lots of unique options and very efficient service.

Good location in between Navy Pier and Mag. Mile, always busy. Good selection, good food. Good size portions. Corned beef hash, country fried steak, and omelets were all winners!

Actually, all of their omelets and skillets looked great, and the pancakes going by me looked amazing too! Great coffee and very timely service. You may have to wait a few minutes to get seated at peak times...

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
