“Good eats!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Have eaten here several times while in Chicago. Service is good, food is good. Prices are in line with other restaurants. The only drawback being that lines are long on the weekends. Will definitely eat here again.

“Great value”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This 24/7 cafe was suggested to us whilst we stayed at a nearby hotel by staff. A great menu choice, friendly welcoming service and great tasting food that is modestly priced make this a steal. Had we not have been told about it, we would have gone straight past it; and that would have been our loss.
Highly recommended.

“YUK”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The only reason this isn't a lower review is because the server was very nice, but the cleanliness and care of the of the restaurant was seriously lacking.
