We were walking back to our hotel downtown and wanted a bite to eat. This place was a total surprise. Lots of local people here at lunch, but they still seated us quickly. The food and service were excellent. Will definitely come back.

Just can't say enough about how much I enjoy dining at 3rd Coast on my not often enough returns to sweet home Chiago. . So taken with their Cobb Salad that it prevents me from venturing any further into the menu. When it comes to a Taste of Chicago, you'll enjoy the taste of 3rd Coast.

Third Coast is a neighborhood institution (since 1985!). There are a number of hotels nearby, and if you want to explore Chicago and feel like a local, then stay away from River North where all the big hotel chains are. Stay in the Gold Coast neighborhood. Have brunch at Third Coast. You are Gold Coast. The food is of course... More

This restaurant- nearly hidden in a high rise in an upscale residential neighborhood- brings an eclectic taste with a European feel. The menu is diverse, and prices are reasonable. Tamp into a latte or cappuccino to hear the whine of the espresso maker that fills the air with an hypnotic coffee aroma. The restaurant is not large, yet there are... More

Charming vintage restaurant in Chicago's Gold Coast. Four of us ate there last evening and enjoyed a wide variety of food. I love that everything is made from fresh ingredients and tasted so good. Service was wonderful and the Key Lime Pie amazing. We will go back and will tell others. Always fun to find a local treasure!

As a former Chicagoan 3rd Coast is a favorite whenever I go home. Burgers with the fixings are huge and so good that with one bite one of our party decided it didn't need any condiments because he didn't want to spoil the taste of the beef. I'm a BIG fan of the Cobb Salad and 3rd Coast does it... More

This cafe was our go-to for breakfast and it was located very close to our hotel. We had a great experience each morning as we were greeted by a sweet waitress named Marlene. The coffee was rich yet smooth and their homemade scones were absolutely delicious! My friends and I actually remember visiting this cafe several years ago and we... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
