“Great Brekkie and Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Went to Yolk on our last day in Chicago. I was worried there would be a line, but we were mid week so we were seated right away. What can I say - a great breakfast place. A good menu and lots of coffee. Go and check it out.

“Big Hearty Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

We ate there for Breakfast before to take the train back to the airport. Go early as the place tend to fill up fast and by the time we left there was a big line. Everything we had was very good. There was a lot of fod on the plates (they make their omlettes with 5 eggs for example). The service was great. We will go back there on our next trip to Chicago. this is a great address for breakfast.

“Breakfast so nice we ate there twice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

When we arrived there was a big line up but I have to say they motor through the list and get you in well within the timeframe they give you when you put your name in. Though they serve countless people and could serve more I give them credit for keeping the restaurant feeling airy and roomy by not jamming in more tables when they clearly could.

Overall the food was great as breakfasts go, all fresh and hot. I will say a 5 egg omelet seems a little excessive but the reality on the plate was generous but so delicious it didn't seem like too much. Service was efficient and attentive but not overly cloying.

If this restaurant were in my city I might wake up in time to eat breakfast more often!
