I have eaten at this chain in both Washington DC and Chicago. They have some Gluten Free options and the prices can't be beat. I highly recommend the Anaheim Scramble. GF and really good. You can get it with fruit instead of toast or potatoes.

I've never been disappointed here, if looking for a quick, reasonable and good breakfast or lunch while visiting Chicago for business. My favorite breakfast of steel cut oatmeal is always available, and the baristas know how to make a real macchiato! Lunch salads are good, and they have a magic touch to keep a line moving along quickly when it... More

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

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...

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 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

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.
