On a Saturday morning we were seated immediately. The main room was full, so they sat us in a back room. It was a very plain room, but was filled with people eating breakfast. The servers are fast and your food is ready quickly. I had the BLTE and it was good. The potatoes were excellent. My kids go the... More

Four days in Chicago and we came here twice for breakfast. Each day was the same, coffee was good and a best western omelette to follow. We like our omelettes on the well done side and these were perfect. Potatoes that came with the omelette were well seasoned and tasty. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Also very convenient to... More

This place was close to hotel . We were seated right away and the coffee was poured for us immediately. Love having a full pitcher of water on the table. The menu is large and so are the portions. Food was out quick.

This was our first breakfast in Chicago. The menu has a lot of choices. Everything was fresh, the food was good, the place is clean, the service was efficient, and the prices were great! I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a good breakfast place and don't mind simple, no frills décor.

When visiting Chicago, a visit to West Egg cafe is a must. Great service, really big portions and great selection of dishes. The coffee is also better and more suropean in style (stronger) than the average U.S. breakfast place. Omelettes and similar dishes - around 10 USD. A great place worth visiting.

I do not think there was something special in this breakfast. Just basic, not bad, but not more than average. In the case you have a luck to find a seat, of course.

When you want to eat good but fast, this is the best place. Near Hilton and Magnificient way, you can eat and drink good coffee without paying too much
