Busy, loud, and aims to please

Our first visit to this popular neighborhood eatery. When we arrived about 9 on a Thursday it was packed and noisy. It’s one large dining room with egg-themed graphics and photos, pleasant and casual. The wait staff was friendly and efficient ... and on top of things as we saw them turn over tables... read more

Small place great food. Split spiked banana French toast and a retro omelet. So delicious. Great service. Never ending coffee cup.

I went to this restaurant with a friend and his wife. Every time we've gone out, someone's dish is off somehow. But here, everyone enjoyed their food. There wasn't any leftover. And it was on the snowiest day this year. And still, the restaurant was full and people were waiting. I had the soy options for the meat and it... More

This place was recommended to us and we went there on a Friday morning without knowing about the perfect reputation this place has. We almost turned around because there was a line. Luckily we didn't and had the most amazing breakfast as a consequence! Although we were four people they managed to get us a table within 10-15min and once... More

After so many times trying to go I finally decided to visit over easy. It was around 11 so me and my boy thought that it was perfect time since by the reviews it says that it's always busy. We wait for only 5 min and right away we got the table. Server I forgot her name was very nice... More

Some great food here. Some really interesting variations. But would really like to try some of those options in a smaller amount. How about a senior or lighter portion of the menu?

Located in Irving Park, Over Easy is off the beaten path and quite a hike from the El (Take the Brown Line to Demen and it's about six blocks from the stop), but worth the travel. The breakfast scrambles are delicious, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is pleasant.

We recently visited our daughter and husband in the Lincoln Square area of Chicago. Though they had read the reviews on this place, they had never been here, so we decided to check it out for a mid-morning, weekday breakfast. What a delightful surprise! The menu selections are unique and original with some bordering on funky, if you so choose.... More

Finally made it into Over Easy on our second attempt. We live in Virginia and tried to get in this past April on a Sunday. No luck. This time, we went on a weekday and success! Your takeaway is to be ready for a wait on weekends; if you can go on a weekday, your chances for a table right... More

This is, hands down, one of the best breakfast experiences I've ever had. From the moment you walk in the staff greets you cheerfully, the decor is minimalist and clean, and the water hits the table almost the moment you sit down. The food is prepared to order and is fresh and delicious. The food is an eclectic combination of... More
