Open late. Food probably better drunk

Definitely a favorite it seems with locals after a night on the town. The food was very good and the service better. I was sober probably the only one in the place but it hit the spot and then some

This was our second visit. Food was not as good as I remember. I had a breakfast wrap which included scrambled eggs (egg beaters were used). There was way too much guacamole on it as well. Atmosphere is good, but the location is becoming a little run down: maintenance needed.

I really enjoy Breakfast at Nookies Tree on N Halstead when ai am in Chicago. The service is friendly, the food is great - especially the corned beef hash and the omelettes. The coffee is also excellent, they have their own unique roast. If you are staying downtown, near the Magnificent mile, it is a bit of a trek to... More

We couldn't decide on where or what to eat so we finally settled on Nookie's. The inside is pretty generic for a diner, it doesn't feel like they want you to stay very long. But, while we were there, the wait staff was very pleasant, and attentive. What I did like about Nookie's, the menu. It was not overwhelming like... More

Nookies is the best breakfast place in Chicago and this location is no exception. Nookies Tree is at a great location with a cute little patio that opens up some mornings (it's not open too early in the morning and some days not at all) but when it's open its a beautiful spot on a side road with not too...

My partner and I stopped in here for a very light dinner. I had the vegetable soup. He had the potato with a house salad. His salad was a lot bigger than he expected. The vegetables in my soup appeared to be fresh. The wait service was pretty good. We asked for suggestions on what area bars to visit, and... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice relaxing breakfast. The menu includes traditional favorites and many fancier plates. It's Zagat rating for food is well earned.

When I stay in W Montrose, I often make my way to Nookie's on Halstead. The breakfasts vary between regular and exotic, but always tasty. Try the specials, where exoticism has free rein. Service efficient and friendly too. My favourite eatery here. Thanks guys!
