Try the All Day breakfast - or the Mexican delights

This is another must for us in Chicago - close to Powell's Book Store and to the lake shore. The all day breakfast is nicely done and never disappoints - love those hash browns. We also tried the burritos with dipping sauce. Mmmmm! The service is super friendly and efficient, as much coffee as... read more

Cozy, with great comfort food and excellent service. Locals and college students frequent this family-owned business. Try any of the omelets, and the coffee is good too. Try momma's baklava...ahhhhh!

We like to re-visit this place whenever we visit Chicago. The location is great - close to the best bookstore in the City - and the Greek food really is Greek. Try the Mousaka and the spinach pies, or just go for breakfast. The staff are super-friendly and helpful. Your coffee cup will always be re-filled. The place is clean... More

This is not a very fancy restaurant. It is a round the corner basic place where is the decent food but patchy service. The first time we went there, the food and service were great. Second time, service dropped a bit. The first time was for lunch and the second dinner. They don't have too many vegetarian choices but do... More

Nothing fancy, just good eats in a family Greek atmosphere. The reuben is good. The lemon chicken soup maybe too thickened. Locals with us love the service and the cozy feeling of the place. A fair value and an asset to the area.

While our daughter was studying at UChicago we ate at Salonica many times. It's a wonderful place for breakfast; there were so many choices. It was easy to see that both locals and visitors frequented this restaurant - always a good sign. Service was friendly. The place was always packed. We always left feeling full and satisfied.

We wanted to this Greek Diner to be awesome, but it was only ok. The food was not so good and the service was slow. Try something else when you are in Hyde Park.

WE wandered in after brousing Powells Books. The service was quick and so friendly. They accommodated a family with kids who came in just after us. The food is tasty, filling and there's a good selection of Greek specialties - and best of all - All Day Breakfast that would be acceptable in the home of Breakfast, the U.K. Our... More

Very busy local place and the cheerful service and delicious breakfast were a treat. Close to the University of Chicago. Paid street parking is available and the cops are vigilant about tickets.
