“Breakfast came fast...really fast”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

A diner type restaurant can be risky. This was clean, friendly and FAST and most important, good.

They customized my veggie omelet with no oil and offered me fruit instead of hashbrowns. Veggies in omelet were perfectly cooked, not overcooked and the fruit was fresh and ample. I'm coming back tomorrow.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Always come here for breakfast when stay downtown. Always clean, great service & one of the best cups of coffee found in any restaurant. It's a typical Greek Family restaurant, but they do a GREAT job on breakfast, & for the price, haven't found a better place for breakfast in the loop in 30 years.

“Great beer & bartender”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I was staying at the Palmer House next door and didn't feel like paying $20 for a beer so I came here on the advice of housekeeping. Great advice. I went downstairs to the new sports bar and ordered 2 beers and an appetizer.. less than $20. But besides that, the bar staff was great. The bartender's name escapes me but she was very friendly and kept great company while my boyfriend was off in his conference meeting. We came back for breakfast the next morning and I'd say the food is nothing to write home about, but all I really wanted was a beer in a "normal" atmosphere and that's what I got. Will definitely be here again if I'm ever back in Chi-town.

“Awesome Buffelo Chicken Wrap”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

I came here for lunch and then came back that night with the boy for beers and pool.

Lunch, around 2 pm, it was me and just a few other patrons. I decided to be adventurous with my beer choices so I did a Clown Shoes: Tramp Stamp, a Blueberry Sea Dog, a Southern Tier, the beer selection is pretty awesome. The buffelo chicken wrap was amazing though. Best one I've had in a while. My bartender, long blond hair girl from Argentina, was awesome. Very friendly, we were exchanging stories on Casino trips.

That night we went back for pool and beer. It was fun. My bartender seems to get a little overwhelmed with more patrons, but that's to be expected. I didn't win pool, :( made some awesome shots though.

Great lunch spot. I like it.
