Worth the wait! Food is amazing and you won't need to eat for quite awhile after eating breakfast here.

While it is only open for breakfast and lunch, the West Egg Café will never disappoint. The staff is all very experienced and have been there for years. The host and owner Victor will greet you with a smile. The counter seats are always first come and first served so you can hover. There is plenty of room for waiting... More

We spend quite a bit of time in Chicago and we tend to gravitate back to the same familiar restaurants. We decided that we were going to spend the entire day eating at places we had never visited before. Chicago has so many great restaurants that we felt we needed to branch out. We used Trip Advisor, Urban Spoon and... More

I spent a long weekend in Chicago and was recommended this restaurant as a good place for breakfast by the hotel I was staying at. At first I nearly left as the wait line was long but decided to give it a try. The line cleared surprisingly quickly and I'm glad it did as the West Egg is really great.... More

Almost walked by it, it's not flashy from the sidewalk. We got seated, quickly ordered, and the food was there in a flash. As we ate the place filled up and a line formed, yet our waitress came by and checked on us and our coffee was refilled. No complaints.

Was looking for a breakfast place around noon time and discovered this great place. I had their bacon, egg, gravy skillet. Very good. Also shared some pancakes. Prompt service and she checked with us often. Would definitely go here again?

The West Egg Cafe provided a large, interesting menu. I chose crepes with eggs. Yummy. It's busy like most good places to eat. The Mexican breakfast had plenty of spice, my friend said. I think you'll like it!
