“Delicious breakfast with no wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We ate at Nookies this morning and arrived to find no wait (super refreshing) and a lovely staff. Everyone's food was delicious ... Wild recommend the Smokehouse Fritatta. Good coffee, fresh squeezed oj and the most reasonable prices on our trip. Highly recommend.

“Perfect start to a foodie city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We got in late to Chicago, and just wanted a quick bite to eat. The staff at the Hotel Lincoln (highly recommended, by the way) suggested this diner around the corner. What a perfect way to start our food adventures in Chicago. They were welcoming, even though it was late, and served delicious, huge sandwiches. Could have been two meals! We will come again on our next trip.

“Best Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Everything is delicious and very generous proportions. Loved the 1970s coffee pots. Still keeping it hot! We need to go back and try everything on the great menu.

“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Recommended by our hotel concierge, this is a great family owned restaurant. The breakfast menu is extensive and the food was wonderful. The prices are very reasonable. It's clean, nicely decorated, has outdoor seating, and the owners are very nice, friendly people. We were looking for something off the beaten path, it was only 2 blocks from the Hotel Lincoln, and we are so happy it was recommended to us!

Blueberry pancakes. Blueberry pancakes. They were so good I had to say it twice. This place is a winner. Go there.
