“Great breakfast spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This was a simple, cute breakfast spit. Service was great and the food was delicious. I wouldn't recommend the creeps though- texture of creeps were rubbery. However, their egg sandwich was delicious! And the cannon roll French toast was EXCEPTIONAL.

“Yolk--good food-many choices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

The prices for breakfast are not inexpensive but there are many unique and tasty items. Wait staff is very efficient and we lovethe red velvet french toast and carrot cake pancakes at this location. Easy walk from Streeterville hotels but there is no view...just good breakfast food. Portions are large...so you can think about sharing your selections. Have never had a "bad meal or service" and we eat here frequntly! Cholesterol is optional :-)

“THE breakfast place in Chicago!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

We walked a few blocks from our Magnificent Mile hotel at about 8:30 am on a beautiful Saturday morning in May and were seated immediately, although the restaurant was nearly filled. We had great service and delicious food. I ordered a California omelet with fruit and a short stack of pancakes. My husband created his own omelet and we were both very satisfied with the outcome. They refill your coffee frequently and get you in and out in a short amount of time to get on with your day in Chicago. We always make it a point to eat breakfast here once while staying in downtown Chicago. Don't come late, or you'll be stuck in a line out the door. It's also fun to people watch out the enormous windows.

“Casual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Had breakfast at Yolk based on hotel concerige recommendation. Very casual cafe atmosphere with high quality food. The egg white, spinich, and mushroom omelete was good but a bit pricey. Recommend fresh fruit and cappucino.
