The café is beautiful. Every little (and big) girl’s dream. The experience is catered to young girls, and they are able to bring their doll. The food is good - breakfast is our favorite! It’s a treat for the whole family.

You come here because your daughter wants to eat with her doll. My six year old LOVED it. My chicken sandwich was good. The whole area is expensive so the prices are reasonable for the area. I was not impressed with the service.

Lovely afternoon tea at the cafe. Servers were so sweet, including my daughter and her doll in the festivities. Super stylist paid attention to detail when styling the doll hair.

Loved this outing with my 7 year old daughter for her birthday. We had brunch there. The food was pricy but good and they served you a lot of food. The waitress did her best to make the meal special and I lived the conversation...More

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

It depends. Our birthday bag included a plastic balloon, a birthday shirt for the doll, and some stickers. Once was enough for us.

Yes, you may be very disappointed if you don’t have a reservation. The café stays very busy.
