    Shorter waits before 9 am, but worth the wait if you come after. Have Intelligentsia coffee bar for the wait. Delicious Benedict, good pancakes, hash browns have nice crisp. Wish fruit was fresher

    Signature Berry Bliss pancakes, side of bacon with a Vanilla Berry Latte and you can't go wrong! Ask for a side order if you have a smaller appetite, like me. A MUST EAT in downtown Chicago!

    Wildberry Cafe excels at skillets, pancakes, omelettes (the baked, browned, fritatta-ish kind, not the delicately balanced, just set and folded French kind), and the like.

    Awesome brioche French toast! Suggestion to get takeaway over weekends and picnic at the park from just a few minutes walk away.

    I could eat everything on the menu... If you are here for a splurge hit up the yummy crepes. However, leaning towards the healthy option, try the Wild Summer Berry Salad - Fresh ingrediants & delish!

    So... Everything we had, and I mean EVERYTHING was superb. Mexicana skillet, cinnamon roll pancakes, biscuits and gravy, then topped off the meal with red velvet French toast. It's worth the wait!

    Thank you Wildberry Pancakes & Cafe, for being an outstanding place to soothe my hunger. The Intelligentsia Caramel Machiatto, Sizzling Skillet with all the meat and Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes was A+

    Super delish. I ordered the Venetian skillet w the special wild berry pancakes on the side. They were two medium sized pancakes and absolutely delicious. Don't come here without having pancakes.

    I'm usually not a fan a skillets but for some reason I got it today. It was fantastic and their home made jam was to die for. Loved it, my daughters loved the chocolate chip pancakes.

    Delicious skillets, recommend the Mexicana skiller. Great french toast. Their specialty pancakes are super tasty. The best place for breakfast and brunch. Definitely worth the half hour wait.

    I went here twice the first time I went to Chicago. At least an hour wait, but absolutely worth it. The food is so good and comes out pretty fast. The amount of food you get is way more than enough.

    Can't go wrong with a skillet. Always upgrade your side to bliss berry pancakes! For only $1, it's a bargain. Oh and did I mention bottomless lemonades? Kiwi and passion fruit flavors are yum!

    Substituting strawberry pancakes (99 cents) for the toast was smart; the fluffy hot cakes are made from scratch and cooked through, a feat many restaurants find challenging. Read more

    Get the Oreo Smores Pancakes. But only as an accompaniment to your omelette. So good. But other food is too good to only limit to one item.

    Wildberry special pancakes. Fair warning that portion sizes are massive - 5 full size pancakes on one plate, can easily share between two people.
