The service was great the food was super fast and the wait was short for a table. The food was amazing the omelette were so good and large where you could share with a friend. They gave good gluten free options too.

I met friends for breakfast, and we enjoyed a nice table by the window. I had the Tomatillo Salsa Scramble (always nice to find a gluten-free option), and loved it.

We had breakfast before visiting Shedd Aquarium. The pancakes were georgous. For any Brits visiting 1 pancake will suffice as they are massive! So tasty though. I had the gingerbread pancakes with poached pear and orange zest mascarpone. Spook good! The service was great too....More

Very tasty and delicious breakfast, especially the white chocolate pretzel pancake and their French toast. Their coffee was a bit too bland.. The location, however, doesn't seem to be cleaned often... Or is not maintained well.

I was looking for a low carb breakfast. I had an egg whites Reuben omelette. It was good a probably to many onions. It had nice pieces of corn beef. The omelette came with a seasonal side salad. Overall it was good.

The Bongo Room was recommended by a friend - and must say it was a good, solid choice for breakfast. My partner had eggs benny and it was good. My issue is a straight forward pancake order was a special request - didn't want all...More
