Decent breakfast, good service and reasonable prices. The corned beef hash was lovely, coffee not brilliant.

I got the Denver scramble! Delicious! Food came out fast! The inside could use a little updating but I didn't mind because the food was so good. Prices are very reasonable as well! My friend got the biscuits with gravy which also tasted good! I would for sure visit again

Stopped in for a late breakfast with my wife and a friend. Waited to seat about 5 mins. Any type egg you can imagine. $6-$12 entrees. You get a lot of food, many unique pairings, fast service.

I had the broccoli, spinach and cheese omelet which was quite good, cooked perfectly. My husband had an omelet with polish sausage (I can't remember the name) that he raved about. Fast service.

We stopped here to refuel after a half marathon and were not disappointed. Great menu and knowledgeable staff. Could do with a little sprucing up atmosphere wise but I think they know that and are working on it. Waiter made a great recommendation and was fantastic with keeping up with requests and he was very personable. Food excellent and a... More

Stayed at the Hilton Doubletree and found the restaurant via trip advisor. West Egg is directly across the street from the hotel. Busy place but the food turnaround is quick. Everyone in the party enjoyed their breakfast. Wait staff was really good.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
