Wonderful Gem!

Stumbled upon this breakfast spot during a stay in Chicago. Wonderful place to enjoy company with friends and great food! Ambiance is adorable and service was attentive and polite. Definitely coming back next time we are in the city!

Ate there twice in one weekend while visiting my son. Both times, we spit two dishes. The first day was Sassy Eggs and the amazing Banana french toast. The second, we had another even more amazing french toast and a Benedict -- both were on the menu for their last day this season. All the great things are true: fantastic... More

I am hard on breakfast restaurants; generally, because they are pedestrian and their execution is lackluster on dishes any moron can make at home for1/4 of the price. I also hate waiting more than 15-20 minutes to eat eggs, smoke/salted meat, bread, and a starch, while swilling below average coffee or tea and overpriced juice. But, this breakfast restaurant, Over... More

We stumbled upon Over Easy while we were staying in Andersonville and it turned out to be the best little breakfast restaurant we have ever been too (they serve lunch also, but no dinner). It doesn't look like much from the outside, but there is a very friendly hostess who greets everyone and opens the door and so cute on... More

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 quickly, sweep the floor. We had... More

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
