Our party of 5 arrived early and checked in for our 930 am Sunday brunch. The store opened at 9am so we shopped for a little bit. At 930 the doors opened. We were shown to our tables and each of the dolls was seated in a chair they attached to the side of the table. They had a box... More

Family had a late lunch here and loved it. It's AGP cafe so I expected to pay more for the "experience" than typical cafe meals. My daughter enjoyed dining with her doll and the cuteness of the meal presentation. The food was tasty, particularly the pasta. We would return if visiting Chicago again simply because my daughter so loved the... More

I would give 5 stars for hype and how they cater to the little girls enjoying their day. But with that being said, they are not the ones paying $22 for grilled ham and cheese sticks. Yes it's 4 courses, but what 6 year old can eat that much? The only adult thing I saw on the menu was a... More

We had the 4PM tea with our 5 year old daughters. The girls aren't quite into the dolls yet, but the service is great and the selection of finger foods and dessert was very nice. I thought it was a reasonable price for the atmosphere and food provided.

We had brunch here. I had Eggs Benedict and it was delicious. My daughter had pancakes and they were a bit thick. Noticed the little girl at the next table did not care for her either. Staff was engaging. Gave us a beautiful table next to the window. Great family experience.

We (aunt, mom, grandma) took my niece there for her Bday celebration and it was wonderful. Seating was organized and prompt with a prearranged reserved seating time. The room was decorated adorable, pink and black and gervie daisies, everything matching and coordinated. Our server greeted us with delicious mini cinnamon buns. Our server Terrance was so sweet, he added to... More

We visited the American Girl Cafe for lunch yesterday (9/16/14). We were just in Chicago for the day, specifically to visit the American Girl Place. I brought my 8 year old daughter and 55+ mother from Kansas City. When we arrived for our 12:30 seating, we were taken directly to our table. The decor was so cute--hot pink, black and... More

..not so good for Grandparents and Mom! The girls, 7 & 8, and their dolls truly enjoyed the whole experience. Food was good, but not very generous portions and over priced. Also felt that the wait staff was just going thru the motions; never spoke to the girls.

Jasmine was our server and she rocked. As expected she catered to the girls who of course had their dolls sitting at the table with them. A little appetizer of cheese and bread and veggies. Then we ordered miniature burgers and hot dogs. Gotta say the burgers tasted like those rubbery burgers you get at Sam's Club in the frozen... More
