We usually go to the same place for breakfast/brunch when we're in Chicago on the weekend. But I noticed that West Egg, only a block from our hotel, wasn't crowded when I was out for a morning walk. So we decided to give the place a try. By the time we got back there it was filling up, but the counter had plenty of room so we sat there. Instead of getting my usual skillet or corned beef hash I decided to try the blueberry pancakes. There were very good - lots of large blueberries, and quite filling. The service was good, and the prices weren't bad for Chicago. We'll remember this place next time we're there.

The breakfast food here is delicious and the service is great. The restaurant is in a convenient location in downtown Chicago. Would go again!

Went here for breakfast to avoid a $40 breakfast at the intercontinental. Turned out to be a good choice, it was a very busy place on a Saturday morning, but three of us were seated quickly and everything was fairly swift. Good choices for the cooked breakfast lover- opted for Huavos rancheros which was good, but everyone’s food looked the part.
