Nice for a light lunch

The sandwiches and soups are all really yummy. I wish I had one near my house so I could go more often!

We were rushing for a quick lunch on our way to the pier for a city boat tour when we passed this promising looking cafe. We were lucky we decided to try this wonderful cafe. We went up to the order window, picked out what we wanted and paid , and within 5 minutes the food was delivered to our... More

What a great value and selection of breakfast food! Something I had not seen before were the breakfast power flats! I had a chicken Apple sausage with scrambled eggs parmesan and cheddar cheese on grilled multigrain flatbread (350 cal) all items included calorie count. This amazing sandwich with a nice cup of fresh fruit was just $8.00! Service was fast... More

Open floor plan with plenty of windows, coupled with a quality,simple menu results in a good experience. Been there for breakfast and lunch menu. Both included potions sizable enough to fill.

I had oatmeal the few times I went here in the morning and it was plenty. Comes in a big bowl with the topping of your choice. Additionally it comes with a side of sort of toast with sugar and maybe raisins in it. People I was with had omelets and eggs for breakfasts, there were not complaints coming from... More

Large variety and very good coffee. We were a large group but were served very quickly and everything was good. The thin panini sandwiches are very good. I like the sausage and my son loved the bacon.

We stayed at the nearby Courtyard Marriott a block away. My wife had the Anaheim Scramble and I had the French Toast. The scramble was delicious and more than ample serving. The French Toast was like a delicious bread pudding with large chunks of yummy apples inside! We definitely will be going back!

The Corner Bakery is walking distance from the Palmer House Hilton and offers a great selection of breakfast dishes. The food was tasty, if not exceptional and their coffee was decent. Compared to the cost of a hotel breakfast this was a great value, if not exactly inexpensive. We recommend it as a great choice for breakfast or brunch. If... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
