    The best Egg Benedict in the town!! There are two poached eggs with bacon and english muffin halves. On the other side served the fried potato and some juicy fruits. The food portion is really big. Read more

    Come early or past noon. Wait times can be annoying. Salmon scrambler is good with biscuits. Corn beef hash with pancakes also an amazing choice. Friendly staff and fast service.

    Get the potato pancakes!!! The California omelette is great too if you're an avocado lover. DELICIOUS FOOD. Wash it all down with a strawberry orange juice.

    Excellent food.Good and fast service.You have to wait, specially on weekends, to be seated.It's not place to seat and be engaged in conversation. It's loud and check is there & you have to go.

    Great place to eat. They will even make you a brunch that isn't listed on the menu. I ordered grilled chicken with eggs and potatoes. It was my favorite meal in Chicago.

    Big portions! Strawberry OJ is a must. Worth the wait. They told us 30 mins and it was only 15. And those red potatoes...

    Tip #2..this is for those who've had gastric surgeries...be weary that they penalize sharing...this is the 1st place I've been post-op that financially penalizes me for not being able to eat an entree

    Excellent breakfast. Highly recommend the Tour de France French toast. Delightful mix of fruit breads, perfectly carmelized and topped with goodies.

    10¢ pancake special was a hit, and the breakfast burrito was great. Not a hug fan of the aesthetic, but great service! Quick, even with a large group
  • Nena A.
    The chilaquiles Verdes were delicious! The hot sauce is very mild and not to spicy which i really liked.

    If you are leaning towards the healthy end, get the south beach menu item... 1/2 pineapple w/loads of fresh fruit and yummy granola :-) Mouth Watering deliciousness.

    The biscuit and gravy are delicious, but be warned! The eggs come on top of it all. It was much better with the eggs on the side.

    The BEST breakfast in Chicago. A little out of the way (S. Michigan) and a HUGE line on weekends, but oh so worth it! Make sure to get OJ and if you have a sweet tooth, crepes!

    You're going to wait for 30-45 minutes anywhere you go out on a Saturday morning. Yolk has decent food (leans heavy on sweet vs. savory), but what this location has is a nice shaded plaza area in fron Read more

    The Red Velvet French Toast is ridiculous. Even if you aren't diabetic, have insulin handy!

    Eggs Benedict are great but ask for the fruit on the side. They also give you coffee to go 👍😁

    The El Torero Scrambler with fresh fruit, rye toast, and a glass of pineapple juice is a perfect start to the day.
