We returned to Yolk every day of our trip because it was so good there was no point in trying any place else. Stephen is a fantastic server, very attentive, friendly and accommodating. The coffee is phenomenal. I kept letting him refill because I didn't want to stop drinking it. The chorizo scramble and croquet madame are unique dishes that... More

Great service, even when its packed...and its packed for a reason! 5 egg omelettes are delicious! There are so many options from spicy to cheesy to veggie. If you're more of a French toast lover, they have tons of options there as well. No matter how long the wait, its worth it.

I walked here for breakfast. I went here because I saw they had broccoli as a omelet item. Very rare in restaurants. I also tried the strawberry orange juice. This place was very good and great service. A very good place if you want breakfast.

Nice breakfast. Extensive menu. Expect a crowd but surprisingly spacious dining area. Sharp staff. Across the street from park on S. Michigan, you can walk off those pancakes.

I was staying 2 blocks away at the Hotel Felix and the receptionist recommend Yolk for breakfast. Ended up there three times for breakfast/brunch. Very clean yet very busy. Huge choice on the menu. Eggs Benedict on day one was excellent - eggs poached perfectly and a refreshing accompaniment of fresh fruits were welcome. The strawberry and orange fresh juice... More

Wonderful food, large menu selections. A little noisy but the food is worth it. We had breakfast but the lunch and dinner menus looked good too.

Stopped there for breakfast as it was next to my hotel. The service was great and the food excellent. The portions are quite large so bring an appetite.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
