The food is OK. The place is too small. It's hard to get a table and I really don't see the big attraction! The palce was super crowded. It took over an hour to get a table.

Hospitable and attentive service, and a great breakfast at an affordable price for anyone who wants a yummy breakfast while downtown or at the station. Will definitely be going back next time we are in town!

Great place, lot's of energy. The Salmon Egg Benedict is awesome. Service was somewhat slow. I was sitting at the bar and it took about 10 minutes to get the attention of a waitress. I will defintetly be back though.

This place is always busy, because it is always good. There are booths, tables and a counter - I prefer the counter, because the chefs are busy! Fun to watch. Everything on the menu is great. I am glad they have grapefruit juice. When visiting Chicago, treat yourself to daily breakfasts at Yolk.

We LOVED our food at Yolk. Quick and attentive service, good portions, and food was delicious. We also really like the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant. This is an excellent breakfast spot in the city.

Breakfast was fast and delicious even though it was packed. Definitely come back here again when we visit Chicago. It's no Yolk for real.

We had visited a different Yolk in Chicago the last time we were there so we decided to go again and it did not disappoint. This place is great because the menu has so much variety that everyone will be happy. There are healthy options and unhealthy options, light or heavy options, pretty much anything you could want for breakfast.... More

Yolk serves good food but know going in it will take a while. The staff is friendly, the ambience is goof, but it's not the spot for a quick breakfast. Plan on spending every bit of 45 minutes. Of you have the time it is great.

Unfortunately I had to sit and watch my family devour pancakes and waffles whilst I had an omelette. Disappointing for such a large establishment
