Reviewed March 7, 2013

Excellent meals prepared your way. Very fresh. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Plenty of choices. Love the crepe suzette w/grand marnier, pot roast benedict (!!!) Try the fresh squeezed orange-strawberry juice. Great place.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

I have eaten here many times but only for breakfast. There can be a long line especially on the weekends so keep that in mind. Staff friendly and food quite good. Love the make your own skillet option.

“favorite chicago brunch”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

The cinnamon roll french toast is to die for! My husband's favors savory dishes like the portabello scrambler. But it does not matter!! Close your eyes and point to something on the menu and you will leave full and happy! We aren't coffee drinkers but the orange and grapefruit juices taste fresh squeezed. Then there's the service! A great, friendly, helpful staff! The place is always packed and there's usually a bit of a wait, but there is a good reason for this. It's worth it! Read the menu while you wait. You'll probably change your mind 5-6 times. :)

Reviewed March 1, 2013

Great breakfast spot. The food was great with lots of Benedict options and the prices were very reasonable. The service was prompt and we enjoyed ourselves. I will definately return when visiting Chicago again.

“WOW! What a great breakfast place”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Creative and fresh diner type atmosphere. The food was WONDERFUL. Service was great as well. I had the sante fe fritatta and pancakes and it could have fed 3 people. It was all fresh ingredients prepared to order with a great presentation. Prices really weren't too bad either considering it's a VERY popular place.
