First called here on a Saturday and it was rammed! Seated quite quickly by very friendly staff. So much choice on the menu and each choice I've had has been delicious. Very reasonably priced. Favourite spot for breakfast so far! Coffee isn't bad either.

I love The West Egg! Huge all-day breakfast and lunch menu, which hasn't changed in 20 years. I get the California Crepe, which is delicious. The staff is friendly and effective. All of your breakfast favorites are there, including many dishes you've never heard of but will love. Fresh, delicious orange juice and they leave carafes of coffee and water... More

Nice open space. Friendøy staff. I ordered the Western Omelet, and it was realy good. Fast service. Pay when you leave, in stead of waiting for the bill at your table. Recommended.

Have eaten here for 16 years. Great location across from doubletree e. Ohio. Staff are all friendly and the breakfast burrito is great. I do recommend this for breakfast. They also do lunch but no dinner service.

Came here on a Monday morning, we were seated fast. Our server was really friendly and helpful. I had the belgian waffle with strawberries, a little too soft for my liking. My sister had the feta fritata. It was also ok, nothing spectacular.

Went to Chicago with a couple of friends and this was one of the places that they suggested at our hotel. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, since it was quite busy during the early ours at which we arrived. Nevertheless, we were immediately seated. There are lots of options ranging from pancakes, omelettes and all sorts of ways to serve... More

Amazing breakfast, everything was cooked exactly as I specified. My scrambled eggs were fluffy and my bacon crispy. This was such a great place for breakfast, I went here two days in a row. The fresh squeezed orange juice was refreshing.

Large variety of breakfast dishes, from the lightest to the bacon+everything madness. Everything very tasty.

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.
