Oh my gosh this place was so good. It was right by our hotel which was nice. The service was amazing, even on a super busy Sunday morning. We enjoyed the grits, the eggs, the bacon etc...everything we had was delicious! Give this place a try.

This was the first place we tried in Chicago and the breakfast portions were excellent, the service was quick, the seating arrangement was open seating but the guys at the bar would advise if there was space as soon as you walked in. The eggs benedict are the best!

Stopped in for breakfast, the restaurant was very crowded. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. Well worth the wait. Service was quick, thermos pot of coffee left on the table for refills. The food was great and well priced compared to some other breakfast spots.

This is classic diner with good quality food. It has something for everyone. We ate here the morning before we left town to head back to INDIANA. This was next to our hotel . My son got chocolate chip pancakes. I got corned beef hash skillet. My daughter got a waffle and my wife got oatmeal. We all left happy.

Whenever I am in Chicago, especially when staying in the Magnificent Mile, I always go to the West Egg for breakfast. It isn't really fancy decor or food. It is just good, hearty comfort food - eggs, potatoes, and breakfast meat; waffles with fruit; omelets, etc - all at reasonable prices. On Saturdays there is sometimes a line to get... More

I love breakfast food and was excited to try this place after reading the amazing reviews online. The food was just ok, similar to what you might find at a chain restaurant. It wasn't terrible, but not a place that I would go out of my way to visit. Wildberry's in Chicago is much, much better.

Thank John S

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
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 the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
