Really pleased that Yolk opened in the Lakeview neighbourhood. They have an extensive menu that is reasonably priced. It's less crowded during the week and much quieter.

We went to this restaurant as a large group and they seated us easily. The food was in all ways delicious and the service efficient. I am a connoisseur of club sandwiches. And this is one of the best ones I've eaten. It's very large though so bring your appetite. Everything we ordered was huge, however it was very good.

For four years now, I've walked by this crazy/busy place, and wondered what all the fuss is about: it's just breakfast. Holy Moly, was I wrong. It's super clean; super busy; super good. We put our names in and were told 45-minute wait. It was 20 minutes. The tables turn fast. Sahra smiled throughout our meal as she served us,... More

When having breakfast away from home, we like to taste things we wouldn't normally do for ourselves at home. Yolk is it. Juevos Rancheros hit all the right notes. The eggs were cooked just right, the sausage at the base was very generous (in fact, the dish overall was huge) and a little fresh fruit side is a good call... More

Went here on a Sunday morning for a casual business meeting. The place was hopping. It looked like a smaller place from the street and at first I assumed that we would be waiting for a few minutes but we were seated instantly and I realized the seating area was twice as deep as I had believed. The menu is... More

I find it irritating to be in such a loud place, especially early in the morning. Although we were seated in a reasonable time frame, the service after that was extremely slow. That being said the food was good, husband had the cinammon roll french toast and loved it. I had the corned beef hash with scrambled eggs, pretty standard.... More

Excellent brunch place- located in the heart of Chicago, we were invited over to meet up with friends (booking well in advance is recommended). Their potato pancakes, milk shakes (sugar overload) are fantastic, as is their Eggs Florentine...I remember ordering the latter and fresh squeezed orange juice... The ambience is very nice, although on a weekend it can get crowded... More

I had the Hey Rickey omelett. Maybe the best breakfast I have ever eaten. Seriously, that omelet was amazing! And more food than I could eat. Reasonable priced as well. Highly recommended

There's no shortage of breakfast places in Chicago, and it can often be tough to choose amongst the many that are within walking distance of wherever you are in the city, but Yolk is a standout and definitely worth trying out at least once! My boyfriend and I were hungry and wanting breakfast on a Sunday morning while visiting Chicago.... More
