I just had scrambled eggs and a muffin, but it was really well done. My companion had Eggs Benedict and loved it. Coffee wasn't exceptional, but everything else was.

We love to enjoy Sunday breakfast at Oak Tree when visiting Chicago. The menu is varied, offering everything from delicious sweets to omelets and sandwiches. Have never been disappointed here. This visit I ordered Huevos Rancheros and it was perfect! The portions are always very generous and service is excellent.

What a fabulous breakfast---and lunch. This restaurant has been in the same place for many years with a totally devoted clientele. The best bakery in town for eat-in or take out. The staff is unique. There are employees with unbelievable longevity and loyalty--some more than 25 years. They operate like a family and make you feel at home. All fresh... More

The Oak Tree restaurant, food is always spot on, bakery is delicious, wait staff is very helpful and professional. They serve breakfast all day so if you are a late riser this works splendidly! The raisin bread toast is the bomb! Corned beef hash is very tasty, so were the eggs benny! The seats near the window are great for... More

I have enjoyed this spot for years. Best gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches!!! I always bring out of town guests here- but it's also a favorite family spot for us. The views are great. The location too. Great for breakfast also.

We went her for coffee one day and for lunch another day. Both times the food was delicious! The homemade chicken soup with rice was phenomenal! Salad and sandwiches are fantastic and made to order with fresh, crisp ingredients. Waitress was pleasant and efficient. She was extremely kind to a complaining lady who was lunching alone. Obviously! Try it, you... More

The food, service, and baked good selections made this place so awesome. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have a nice, fresh meal. The people behind the counter run it so efficiently that your order is taken, prepared and handed to you with a smile within minutes of walking to the counter.

I was told they had the best Ruben sandwiches, so I tried it. It was the worse Ruben I have ever had. For $15, don't waste your money. The corned beef was so fatty is was disgusting. Eat a Ruben elsewhere!!!!!
