Yolk is one of our local breakfast places. Food is always good and plentiful. Table servers are very good. BUT the seaters/cashiers could typically care less if you are there and barely acknowledge your presence. That's the only reason I did not give a 5 star rating.

Nothing negative here. It was very busy when we were there yet service was great. Even better was the food. Great place for breakfast/lunch. Price was very fair, for 10$ your not leaving hungry. If there was one of these in my state I would visit often.

Work really early with jetlag, so looked up where was open for breakfast, and this place was handy and really we'll rated. Lived up to expectations and then some. Had the spicy 5 egg omelette with avocado and it was to die for..

What a great breakfast spot...we were stuffed! Pot roast eggs Benedict, chicken and waffles with gravy and a berry bowl that was overflowing... Really tasty food, good service and some cute waiters too!

I love to eat at this unique restaurant when I visit my daughter. This time I tried the bacon waffles and they were delicious! The omelets are large and all ingredients are fresh. The side of fruit was also fresh and so good! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

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
