Nice alternative to Starbucks

Good selection of cookies and cakes. Nice change from Starbucks, less trendy but more space and more mixed crowd. People actually come here to eat and not to work on their Macs...

This is a solid breakfast option if you want to get out of the hotel food option. Order at the counter and they bring it out to you. I had a breakfast omelet that was good with some breakfast potatoes. My 2 18s had what they wanted, with no complaints and my wife had coffe cake and we were all... More

Love pure love of my giant cinnamon toast butter for breakfast, they pack it with orange and grape other jelly. Anytime I eat it in my cube all people are jealous my breakfast smells so good. Love this place for lunch as well, love their tomato soup and salads. They have a good selection of muffin and cookies. For a... More

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

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.
