We were here for brunch when we flew into Chicago for a week. Great cafe. We had their smoothies and the crepes both sweet and savory. I suggest the Ginger Zing smoothie. Friendly staff and delicious food promptly served even during a rush.

Very good for a breakfast meeting. Close to downtown, but quiet. Food and service are good and it has easy access in the morning.
