Genuine Swedish Food!

Ann Sather's original place was on Belmont, near the El-tracks...the waitresses were all over the age of 60, and you would not be served dessert unless your plate was clean! LOL! Years later, their prime location is in Andersonville, on Clark Street near Foster Avenue. They have many traditional... read more

Coffee was not a favorite, but service was good and food was delicious! 2 eggs scrambled with a side of fresh fruit and 2 cinnamon rolls. Very reasonably priced. Recommend highly and I'll be back on my next visit.

I had heard about Ann Sather from Food Network/Cooking Channel and wanted to give it a try when my husband and I were in Chicago. When we first walked in, I thought we were going to have to wait an hour for a table. Not at all. We were seated immediately. As crowded and as popular as the place was... More

We had been to the original Ann Sather in Lakeview several times, the last one having been for a children's birthday party many years ago. It so happened that it was another birthday party that brought us back to the North Side of Chicago and Ann Sather, this time further north in Andersonville. The service was friendly and the staff...

Great American style breakfast with some healthy options too. Get the cinnamon rolls as a side and their cottage style potato with cheese on it! The coffee is good. Be patient with the service. There is also seating upstairs!

Stopped here for breakfast. Service was good and the food was excellent. Try the Swedish Pancakes with Lingon Berries and/or Cinnamon Roll. Prices were affordable too.

There are four Ann Sather restaurants in Chicago--and nowhere else. I've only been to the original one in Lakeview, which is conveniently located just next to the Belmont (red) EL, and this one, but they were well worth it. I liked both because they have wonderful frescoes on the walls of Scandinavian fairy tales. Ann Sather bought the business from... More

We've been here once or twice, but I clearly forgot how amazing the cinnamon rolls are. My 3 year old was sick and terribly whiny, and I am still glad we went. As others have said, the service was a little slow. The rest of the food was very good, but I could have just eaten the rolls and been... More
