We had already eaten lunch or we would have tried eating more. The offerings looked great. We tried the soft serve ice cream that is vegan. My husband was excited since being lactose free, he hasn't had ice cream in years.

Worth trying if you are open to new tastes and preparations. Some is very good, some not so much. Relatively pricey. In nice Lincoln Park neighborhood.

I like the variety of foods and the food is good. You order at the counter then they bring it to you. They have yummy desserts and smoothies! Will definitely be back! (Free parking for guests is a huge plus)

Second trip to Chicago and first visit to Karyn's...such a wonderful brunch! Fresh, tasty food...I had the Mediterranean scramble--so delicious! Her whole wheat pancakes were awesome, especially slathered with the maple syrup. We left quite full, but not with that "stuffed" feeling. I would definitely...More
