In Chicago for three days, every morning started with a YOLK breakfast! I loved the breakfast wrap with great salsa!

Went here for a late breakfast during a trip to Chicago. The portions are fairly generous, which was great, and everything tasted good. But it certainly wasn't anything truly special. I had an omelette and my friend had eggs benedict. They both came with potatoes, and mine came with pancakes. Neither of us were impressed with the potatoes - they... More

Greeted and seated within seconds, instantly got ice cool water and a cup of coffee (including timely refills), ordered Eggs Benedict and a large orange juice - just a perfect start in Downtown Chicago.

This was my first time at Yolk and I figured that as with most other breakfast cafes / restaurants I had been to, regular portions would be served and, so, I ordered the five-egg omelette, a side of French toast and a side of sausages. (You read that right . . . five-egg omelette). The waitress was very courteous and... More

Yolk is an expanding Chicago chain that I wish would come to NY. The food is always consistingly good and portions are large. Great breakfast or lunch stop.

We actually ate at the newest Yolk location on Diversity St. in Chicago, but it's not listed in the reviews. I'm presuming the other locations are just as good as the one we ate at. We had breakfast for lunch and loved every bite, although there was so much food we couldn't eat it all. The fruit was sweet &... More

Went here for Sunday morning brunch. The place was PACKED with people showing up every second, but they moved them in and out with expertise and no one was rushed. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Food was decent, but there was a lot of it! Home fries were really good.
