April 24/17 breakfast at a great diner. A little bit of the beaten path, shall we say, but well worth the effort to make it there. Typical diner, great food, lots of coffee, and good, casual service, all at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Avoid the high prices at your hotel and have breakfast here. Great menu, good coffee and really fast service can be found here. The food was good with very reasonable prices. We ate here twice during our recent visit to Chicago.

This is located inside the Pittsfield Building. Took us a minute to find the entrance. Great food without paying the tourist price. Located 1/2 block off Michigan Ave. It was a great place to enjoy breakfast before our long day of shopping.

We went here for breakfast on our last day in Chicago on a short holiday with my husband and their skillet breakfasts are worth it! They were fast, friendly, and most importantly, the food is enough to provide the energy you need for the day...More

Want a good cheap breakfast? You will find it here. I love the classic, cramped diner feel personally. It has that character of an old town place. Also, the cook whistles and sings while he cooks. All of the people working here are interesting characters....More
