This is one of four Nookies in the Chicagoland area. This one is consistently good with an extensive affordable menu and servers who are personable and always aim to please. It's also in the middle of Boys Town, which makes for a fun atmosphere and great people watching.

I just can't complain about any of the Nookie's restaurants. There are always some interesting specials, they understand the importance of coffee and hot food, and they do a good job on the basics. This location is one of the least crowded, and I am never disappointed. They do great seasonal frittatas, and some pretty killer French toast as well.... More

I used to love eat there after going to the bars in Boyztown. Was in Chicago last weekend and they were closed already and it was only midnight. I found out they close at 11 now. What a shame. Even if they couldn't get a lot of business 24/7 they should at least be open until after the bars close.... More

Was looking for a local spot for breakfast after running the Race to Wrigley, and found this cool place. Service is spot on, and the food is delicious! There are the usual breakfast choices, as well as fresh fruits and veggie options. The coffee is amazing. So good! Go there!

This is our favorite breakfast spot in Chicago. There are two other locations, but this is the biggest and least crowded. When you walk in it looks like an unassuming breakfast place or diner, but the food is all outstanding and the coffee (Metropolis) is excellent and bottomless. It has the quality of a higher-end brunch spot but with a... More

This was our second visit. Food was not as good as I remember. I had a breakfast wrap which included scrambled eggs (egg beaters were used). There was way too much guacamole on it as well. Atmosphere is good, but the location is becoming a little run down: maintenance needed.

Definitely a favorite it seems with locals after a night on the town. The food was very good and the service better. I was sober probably the only one in the place but it hit the spot and then some

I really enjoy Breakfast at Nookies Tree on N Halstead when ai am in Chicago. The service is friendly, the food is great - especially the corned beef hash and the omelettes. The coffee is also excellent, they have their own unique roast. If you are staying downtown, near the Magnificent mile, it is a bit of a trek to... More

We couldn't decide on where or what to eat so we finally settled on Nookie's. The inside is pretty generic for a diner, it doesn't feel like they want you to stay very long. But, while we were there, the wait staff was very pleasant, and attentive. What I did like about Nookie's, the menu. It was not overwhelming like... More
