Nice fresh OJ, pastries and coffee available without much of a wait. Were Drake guests and used the daily breakfast coupons here every morning instead of hotel buffet breakfast. Good option. Some variability in friendliness of staff, but it is a hotel restaurant.

This coffee shop was so modern and airy. The food selection was a bit limited but what was there was good. I had brakfast and a muffin which both are made on sight

If is not for the view... Years ago this was a preferable destination, not now. Place is gloomy, with a cheap furniture, they have no espresso! Waitresses have shifts and will remind you to pay before she goes off, unacceptable!

It depends on your personal taste: if you like a modern, sleek, colorful place for a smart brake enjoying good coffee, this place is suitable. I missed the point of it, since it wasn't clear if I could get food or just coffee and pastry. It's was clean and fresh, with nice design. I asked for a double espresso and... More

I love coffee and the store is beautiful and they have so many menu items and so many bakery items. I couldn't make a decision on what to eat. But the lack of organization in their coffee order taking system was ridiculous. People were waiting 10 minutes. Insane!

The coffee served here is European and is very different from a Starbucks experience. This coffee is best enjoyed by experienced travelers and foodies. .

Six of us visited this place and were really dissapointed. Staff was RUDE. They had no decaf and insisted the only way to get it was to order an Americano.....at full price. Then to top things off, shortly after we got our drinks they tossed us out since they decided to close at 4PM. We said they should let us... More

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile.

It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
