    You don't have to get full stack. You can just order one or two pancake stacks. Three pancakes a little overwhelming.

    We love that they serve breakfast all day long! Our recommendation: add a side of house potatoes with cheese to complete your meal.

    8-12 minute taxi ride from the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel heading into the South loop. Expect such tasty treats as the chocolate tower French toast, and spinach roasted red pepper and feta Benedict.

    Try the chocolate french toast and Lobster Eggs Benedict together. Both are amazing. They'll be happy to split a dish if you're not capable of a colossal caloric challenge.

    The different pancakes all sound amazing, but if you also want something savory, it can be tough to choose. So here's a little trick: Order just one of any pancake. Nice of them to let you do that!

    Like all the best restaurants, the menu changes frequently. Order anything from the specials menu, or whatever sounds the most like it should be a dessert. Read more
