This is the second time my family and I visited this restaurant. The first visit ranked near a 5, but the second visit just barely ranked a 4. Service was good both visits. Flavor of the food was the most significant change. We really looked forward to a return visit after the first visit, but the second visit was a... More

Our family enjoyed breakfast here while visiting Chicago. It was crowded (Sunday) but the service was still good and the food came out fast. Lots of typical breakfast choices and some unique ones. I had BACON WAFFLES. Bacon pieces mixed in the batter! I highly recommend them! Prices were average and food was good, so its worth a stop if... More

We've tried omelets in a number of places, including out of the country, and these continue to be among the best. There is no skimping on the ingredients, service is surprisingly fast, and many of the omelets include pancakes. The Streeterville location is always jammed. The Yolk website gives Ohio St. address, but the location is at Grand and McClurg.... More

I love breakfast, so my husband and I started my birthday at Yolk, and I couldn’t have been happier. Perhaps because of the frigid temperatures, and that it was mid-week, the restaurant was nice and quiet. The menu offers just about every breakfast item you can think of. I had an omelet, and the ingredient options were extensive. My husband... More

This was close to the Godfrey Hotel when we stayed there. The wait list can be a bit long during peak times, however it moves quickly. I recommend sitting at the bar area. Service here is friendly. Food is great and very filling. It's become our go to breakfast/brunch spot when we're in the area.

Check it out good food great service. Liked the fact we walked right in and were sat in a lovely corner booth. The waitress went out of her way to map out where the Water Tower place was for us on a map. The food was yummy!

I should start my review by saying I'm huge fan of breakfast food and Yolk didn't disappoint! I ordered eggs, waffles and fruit salad and they were all so yummy. I personally loved how the staff kept refiling my coffee cup whenever it got bit colder, and I enjoyed the full tray of flavored coffee cream. I went there on... More

Ate here while staying at a hotel nearby and was very satisfied. My wife had some Spanish eggs that had a lot of flavour and spice. I had the banana and peanut butter pancakes. They were amazing. I enjoy sweets, but if you don't then they might be a bit too much sweet. The service was very fast and super... More
