We ate breakfast at Yolk on a weekday morning so it was not busy at all. Service was poor. We had to flag down our server each and every time we needed a coffee or water refill, a container to go and finally our check. The food was served warm, not hot. Even the coffee was not hot. The create your own scrambler had more fillings than egg. The Nutella Crepes were delicious, but the walnuts were missing. At least the food was not greasy. The prices are ok for downtown. If all the seats were filled, it would be tight seating. The tables are placed close together. I would not go out of my way to come here.

We came by about 10AM on a weekday. Counter was busy, but we were seated and served promptly. Our food was near perfect and service was efficient.

In our view trips to downtown Chicago we have attempted to eat at this restaurant for breakfast. On most days, the line is out the door (and this is a good sized place). This time we went mid week, late morning, and were able to get seated right away. I will say that throughout our meal, etc., there was a constant flow of customers. They are prepared for the volume of folks with enough wait staff, table cleaners, cooks, etc. They assisted each other and the register folks kept a good eye when tables were opening. If you wanted eat outside that was an option today as well.

The food was good and a generous amount. I had a skillet which was tasty and my wife had french toast which was more than satisfying. The menu is such that lunch items were also available. I felt the price for what we ate was fair..especially after eating in a few local restaurants where it can get pricey. Our server, Sotiri, was excellent and conversant (which is important to me). I asked that hot sauce be delivered with the food and it did. More times than not I have to ask again..not today. All in all a good experience.

No way my family was waiting over an hour for breakfast. We walked north to Local Root and we ate and were out the door in the time it would have taken to eat here.

We had an 8:30 bike tour at Bobby's Bike Hike this morning and had breakfast at Yolk beforehand. It's just a block or two away. The food was good, as was the service, and the location was very convenient.
