Had to wait in line after church at Old St. PAT 's. Great service. Great eggs Benedict. Coffee was delicious too. Milk duds & donut holes for waiting

Breakfast was flavourful! Ample portions. Diner decor. Teenage daughter loved it! Heard there would be lineup to get in but we managed without that experience.

I had worked on a play featuring this well-known breakfast spot, so when I arrived in Chicago, it was a prime target. By reputation, Lou's omelets are to die for, and I was not disappointed. So are the freshly made donuts. I have no reason to doubt that the rest of the menu is equally superb. Open only to 3:00 p.m., It sits proudly at the beginning of Rte 66 before it winds its way to California. The place is very clean, very friendly, and very busy. It's a high point of a Chicago visit, so try to get there before the crowds.
