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!

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...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. 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.
