We ate at Yolk twice during our week visit to Chicago. The price was great and the food plentiful. I loved how fruit was an option instead of the standby potatoes. We were so full, that we were able to by pass lunch and were full until dinner.

Very good breakfast and friendly staff. Arrived here at 12 am, very few people were there at that time. The meal was prepared in 10 minutes: one portion included fried eggs, 2 creeps, bacon and sausages.

We had a 30 min wait but was happy to do so after reading other glowing reviews. I'd say they had a better than average breakfast, but not the best I've had in Chicago. Everyone at my table enjoyed their meals - frittata, benedicts, omelets. I'm not sure I'd wait a long time for the "opportunity" again though.

Great breakfast and great service. The restaurant is very clean, however, It is a little pricey and parking was an issue. I would recommend this restaurant

We ate this morning. We were sat very quickly. Services was attentive and professional. I had 2 eggs, fruit (nice choice over potatoes), sausage and toast. My son had the chicken and waffles. And wife had the stuffed French toast. All were excellent. The menu had anything a person could want.

This was by far one of the best places we ate at on our trip! The food was delicious! We got there around 9:30am and only waited about a minute before being seated. The place was packed! When we left there was a line waiting for seats. The wait is worth it! The food is absolutely amazing! I had Red... More

Every time we come to Chicago we make a point to eat here. The food is good and the serve is great. It does get busy, so plan ahead.

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.
