Four of us stopped here for breakfast - orders included egg burritos, cinnamon pancakes, omelettes - the food was excellent and service was as well. I would most definitely return.

The title of this review is no exaggeration. I went into my trip to Wildberry with high expectations given its ranking on TripAdvisor and this restaurant did certainly not disappoint.

Our party ordered an Espanola omelet (peppers, avocado, chorizo, etc.) and the Wildberry signature pancakes and both were absolutely made to perfection.

There are a ton of excellent breakfast places in the Windy City----but Wildberry is the best I've had so far. If you are in Chicago, you should definitely make this a must on your list.

Two words of advice, however. Because Wildberry is so popular, the wait times here can be extremely long. I'd advise going really early or late in the morning if you are planning to go on a Saturday or Sunday.

Also, if you are a party of two and it is a busy time of day you will literally be sitting on top of two other tables right next to you as they try to pack as many people as possible into the restaurant. Sort of kills the atmosphere a little when you feel like you are sitting on top of others. However, the food more than makes up for this.

We ordered take-out from here, so we can't rate the sit-down service, but the food was delicious and ready within the amount of time it took to walk over from our hotel. They also serve Intelligentsia coffee, which was great. Highly recommend them for breakfast.

On a tripadvisor recommendation, I went for breakfast. We were seated within 10 minutes, the staff was very friendly. Eggs and cinnamon bun pancakes were delicious. Came to refill coffee multiple times without asking. We were not rushed even though the place was packed. Will definitely be back. A Chicago gem.

Just come back from a week in Chicago, Wildberry is everything people are saying. The service was great throughout, the pancakes were great, if you are not that hungry go for the half stack, 5 buttermilk pancakes can be too much....They are definitely worth it though.
