Breakfast is definitely worth the wait at Yolk. We waited over 45 minutes on Marathon Sunday but I was so glad we did! The food was relatively inexpensive and extremely plentiful. The service as quick and the waitress was very nice. They turn people over quickly without rushing you! It was so good, we went back the next day for... More

Fantastic breakfast location with so many tasty options- the biggest problem is choosing what to have! Corned beef hash & eggs was awesome and the juice was super fresh. Our server was brilliant and struck the perfect balance between chatty and giving us space to relax.

I really like this breakfast spot even though they don't really know what you mean when you say "cheese eggs." Lol. The french toast is perfect and the sausage is outstanding. The price is fair for Chicago and the setting is contemporary and clean looking. Always a must for a restaurant. My wife loved the beef hash, potatoes, and pancakes... More

Fine, everything is fine. The best part of this place is the slogan on the tshirts. Needs an upgrade; was better three years ago.

Nice atmosphere, but they aren't able to repeat the quality of food. Ordered 2 steaks well done, but only one was well done. Service was fast.

Went looking for a Yolk after friends recommended it and the food was worth the trip. Alexandra looked after us and it was the best service we got in Chicago. A lot of fun and good food.

Yolk was packed on a Sunday morning around 9:30 and there was about a 30 minute wait. They took our number to text us when our table was ready and we took a walk around the block. Despite the crowds they texted us in 15 minutes and our server was with us shortly. The Eggs Benedict with grilled tomatoes, pesto... More

I had been disappointed with some of my dining experiences in Chicage, but Yolk redeemed my breakfast experience. The menu is comprehensive and the waiting staff were friendly. The place was packed, always a good sign, and I would recommend a visit.

Thank John F
