“Great for children's parties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We had been to the original Ann Sather in Lakeview several times, the last one having been for a children's birthday party many years ago. It so happened that it was another birthday party that brought us back to the North Side of Chicago and Ann Sather, this time further north in Andersonville.

The service was friendly and the staff seemed accustomed to dealing with children. The famed cinnamon rolls were as we remembered them: plentiful, sticky, sweet, chewy goodness. Our party had selected a variety of breakfast items. I had the Crab Cake Benedict which was a good foil for the sweet cinnamon rolls. We ate on the second floor by the window for some natural light. The colorful murals made for a cheery atmosphere.

The parents enjoyed their brunch and adult conversation while the kids had fun filling up on cinnamon rolls and being together with their friends. All in all a fun time was had by all.

“Great American style B-Fast w/huge portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great American style breakfast with some healthy options too. Get the cinnamon rolls as a side and their cottage style potato with cheese on it! The coffee is good. Be patient with the service. There is also seating upstairs!

“Lots of food -taste of Sweden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We stoppedby here for breakfast in this Swedish area of Chicago (Andersonville). We both had the Swedish sampler which is huge, starting with 2 big cinnamon rolls. The platter has Swedish pancakes with lingonberrry, a large Swedish meat ball, potato sausage eaten with spic brown mustard, and an egg of your choice. Food was very good and reasonbly priced for such a large serving - the cinnamon rolls alone could make a meal!

Stopped here for breakfast. Service was good and the food was excellent. Try the Swedish Pancakes with Lingon Berries and/or Cinnamon Roll. Prices were affordable too.

“A Chicago Institution not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

There are four Ann Sather restaurants in Chicago--and nowhere else. I've only been to the original one in Lakeview, which is conveniently located just next to the Belmont (red) EL, and this one, but they were well worth it. I liked both because they have wonderful frescoes on the walls of Scandinavian fairy tales.

Ann Sather bought the business from a Swedish couple and expanded from there; that's why the restaurant and menus have delicious Swedish pancakes and other Scandinavian touches. The food portions are extremely generous and the restaurant is famous for it's cinnamon buns, which are enormous, are always served in two--and that's just one of the sides of two you choose from when ordering!

So come hungry, come with friends for good company, and enjoy the food and friendly service. I came here alone and with friends and was very happy with the experience every time. All major credit cards are accepted. Oh, and feel free to try all four locations: I noticed there were some variations in the menus between the Andersonville and Lakeview locations, confirmed by one of the friendly staff.
