We stopped here for lunch and had some great sandwiches that were very filling. The service was quality and the breakfast options look fantastic. Hope to go back soon to try.

All of their food was excellent! but every one must try the red velvet french toast. It was divine. Friendly staff. There is a little wait to pay for the bill but all in all a great experience.

Loved our experience at Yolk! A diverse group of people both patrons and staff helped to make this a great breakfast. I had the eggs Benedict florentine. $11. It was very good. Served hot and fast with fresh fruit and potatoes. There are several locations downtown so I know we have a place to go wherever we stay.

This is my second visit and it was better than the first! I will say that if you go on the weekends, expect to wait a little bit. But, it's worth the wait! I had a frittata and iced coffee and it was amazing! There's extensive options on the menu and it's hard to choose just one!

We ordered two variations of eggs with vegetable options. Both were overwhelmed with potatoes and only a sparse offering of vegetables. No gluten free toast options, so my wheat sensitive wife had to forego the toast that comes with the order and had to pay extra for fruit. The restaurant is very loud and seemed to have multiple electronic soundtracks... More

There are so many options of food items, I wish I could've gone back to try more items. We were able to get priority seating, otherwise expect to wait a while to eat. Our waitress was really sweet and helpful as I wasn't sure what to order. I could've had her stop by a few more times to fill my... More

We went to yolk for breakfast after checking out the reviews on Trip Advisor and in the main they are right. Our server was helpful & replaced my eggs straight away when the kitchen had cooked scrambled instead of over easy - no problem. Good breakfast menu, with a reasonable atmosphere, all round better than the average breakfast joint.

The menu was full of interesting breakfast items. My wife got the croque madame and I got the chicken and waffles. Both were very good and since we went on a Monday morning around 9am there was no wait. Service was friendly and fast.

Fast, easy brunch. Daughter loved the crepes. No wait on Sunday in the city, loved that! Huevos Rancheros were interesting.

Eggs! That's what you go there for. Clearly people love the eggs. The wait was 30 minutes. The doorman horribly rude. Patrons in line threatening to "toss over the table" of a couple who lingered too long after the last bite. Never again!
