One of the best breakfasts we have ever had! We did go on a Saturday (Valentine’s weekend) and told the wait was approximately an hour. However, due to the weather (starting to snow) it ended up only being a 35 minute wait. Rex, the manager...was the one outside in the cold and was excellent in getting everyone inside and warm as fast as he could in a fair fashion. Let us tell you, it was 100% totally worth the wait! They are heavily practicing social distancing which is nice. It’s reasonably priced. For two of us we paid $55 before tip. Which is expensive for a breakfast, but a steal for the food we received. My husband had the triple turtle coffee (hot) and it was delicious (we ended up getting 2 to go). I had the hot apple cider which was AMAZING! It is seasonal though. We both created our own omelettes and hash browns. Now, all of that was delicious, BUT the specialty pancakes were to die for! We had the Oreo s’mores and cinnamon roll. Definitely recommend you go if you are in Chicago!More

Awesome breakfast food. The pancakes were so so good. Only outside dining is currently available as of 22 Dec 2021. Staff was courteous and professional. Would highly recommend.

Chicago is one of the best cities for breakfast spots, hands down. Whenever I am in town, I try new breakfast place and this one was amazing. Their food portions are huge and the food tastes great. The atmosphere was so laid back and it...felt as if you were in your own home. We sat upstairs and being able to look outside or look down was a nice touch. It didn't hurt that this location was connected to the Water Tower Mall.More

This was an excellent breakfast. Huge portions that we could have shared and will the next time. The staff was friendly and it is in a great location for enjoying a meal before touring around.

I went to Wildberry for my lunch today because I remember how delicious the food was since the pandemic their scores went way down I went and paid for my food the lady said it will take 10 to 15 minutes so I went to...the bathroom which did not smell good and came out and it was ready I should’ve checked my food because it could not be ready that fast but they steamed up the container of food so I couldn’t see inside the container I trusted them because all I’ve had was great experiences in the past. Wake mistake I took the pool across the street where I worked sat down and looked at it and couldn’t believe it the tomatoes nasty the chicken dry the cheese rubbery the bread was not fresh I tried to eat it but I couldn’t so I have half of it left the rest of it went into the garbage I couldn’t believe how the manager spoke to me Asking me to bring the food back I’m at work they close at 2 PM so I have to make a special trip back tomorrow just to let him see it and there’s no guarantee he’s going to give me replacement food he told me he needs to see the food can you believe that’s what I call if there wasn’t a problem I am like a food critic The food it cost $16.20 do yourself a favor go somewhere else PS black customers also matter They should treat everyone like an executiveMore

My daughter and I ate here on a weekend trip to Chicago. We had huge portions, the food arrived quickly and the coffee was great. I do suggest going to the location near Water Tower as it is faster to get in.

Awesome restaurant, food was great and staff. We asked for crispy bacon had to send it back to get it right, hot chocolate was good, it was room temperature when I received it.
