A throwback restaurant

If this restaurant was on the east coast, it would be inside a diner, and i say that as a compliment. The menu had something for everybody and the food was pretty darn good. The staff was friendly and engaging.

Pretty typical Chicago Jewish deli. All the menu items you would expect, chicken soup, corned beef etc. Not great, but very good and there are very few delis around,

Had here an excellent omelette. There is a very large variety of bagels, hard to choose which to order. Good service.

Stopped in late morning on a Sunday for some breakfast. Service was prompt and courteous. Food was quick to arrive after ordering. The portions are generous. The quality of the food is very good, especially their famed french toast. Server was very pleasant and attentive! They have a full deli that we did not take advantage of, but will plan... More

Breakfast anytime, what's wrong with that? Typical New York style deli has great eggs and potatoes and big, delicious sandwiches. Always a great go to spot at Old Orchard, or a place to meet a friend for early breakfast. Know what you want when you sit down, the servers are pretty pushy to get you to order.

My favorite is the Matzah Ball Soup. One Ball fills the bowl. Everything else is exceptional. Make sure you do not eat before you go there. Food is in abundance. Service is knowledgeable. Take some of the bakery goods home for later. There is room for groups or large families. Try the Mish Mash. It is in the Old Orchard... More

The Kishka was a little dry, as was my wife's corned beef sandwich which might have been better if it was warm, but my tongue sandwich was juicy and delicious. When visiting from out of town it's nice to find a traditional deli that doesn't charge for the bread or the pickles. Complimenting the food was the attentive service from... More

I have a long history with the Bagel -- from visits as a kid with my dad to the Kedzie and Lawrence location in Albany Park....to dates at the Devon Avenue location....to lunch with the other Sadie-Sadie-married-ladies at the Old Orchard location in Skokie. No matter when or where, there were always huge portions of delicious food.
