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

I have been wanting to try brunch here for a very long time! And clearly I am not the only one, because on a beautiful fall morning at 1030 am there was a big crowd standing outside. We were told there would be a 45 minute wait, and there was exactly that. They have a tray of coffee outside to... More

If you're like me, and think most breakfast places are dumb (bacon and eggs, I can make this at home) this is a reason to go out. On Sunday's they do a mexican breakfast special that is so delicious. The rest of the menu is great as well, Sassy Eggs! Fluffy and delicious pancakes and Julius Meinl coffee. If you're... More

Warm and inviting with incredibly friendly staff. Smaller place so those attempting a visit on the weekend should prepare to wait but the food is definitely worth it. I visited during the week so there weren't many people there, food was served quick and the coffee never got below half before being refilled. They offer specials that you'll want to... More
