“Good for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This was perfect for a good, quick breakfast. We had grilled panini breakfast sandwiches and coffee and they were both excellent. They also have egg dishes and a good selection of really fantastic looking pastries. You order, get your own coffee and then find a table and they bring the food to you, so it is pretty quick even though each dish is cooked to order. There is also outside seating. Great location; very "buzzy" with locals and tourists coming in to grab a bite and go.

“Good breakfast place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

The breakfast was quite yummy, filling and economical. The latte was expensive and slow!! The oatmeal was cold which I didn't expect.
A very busy place .

“Great food - Confusing to first timers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

A reallly good atmosphere with equally great tasting food. Bustling, noisy and lots going on.

However as a first timer to the bakery, the flow of the ordering procedures is almighty confusing. You soon get the message that it is kind self service and lave the table you have "secured" and try ad figureout where and how to order. You get a table number on a stand and return to your now occupied table.

After a while of scouting around the bakery table area as some diners show signs of leaving, you scuttle nearby to secure their table once they leave. I guess they get the message that you NEED their table after you have stared at them continuously for 3 or so minutes.

Just as well as here comes the food. Not sure what we have done if the food arrived and we were still standing with table number in hand?

Anyway all was forgotten as food and morning coffee was great.

“Great BBLT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This isn't the exact location I went to, I went to the location on 360 N. Michigan Avenue,Chicago,IL,60601 and this place was great. I went on Sunday Morning of labor day and it was packed. The line was at least 30 people deep and the place served us fast. The service was fast and friendly and accurate. I ordered the BBLT on grilled sour dour and this was one of the best sandwiches I have had. This bacon was thick and crispy not like Subway where the bacon is see through. I am going back tomorrow to get two more BBLT's for my fiance and I.
