If your looking for something light for breakfast and not to heavy, I would recommend this place. We ate here twice while we were in Chicago. We both had different items both days and neither one of us was disappointed with what we got. Prices weren't bad. We left full, but not stuffed, which is the way we like it.

This place is modern and inviting. There's large windows which makes it very bright. The staff were very friendly and upbeat. However the food was nothing special. The portions are small and they don't even butter the toast. ( butter provided was rock hard) Far better choices in downtown Chicago.

This is a local chain--but don't let that deter you. There are many options for breakfast and lunch and very fair prices. Soup and salad/ Soup and half sandwich? etc.

We stop here for breakfast every time in Chicago. It is good starting point for shopping the Miracle Mile. The food is always good and made to order. The pastries and muffins are also good to go. A nice treat for the next day. The egg scrambler was very good and the pancakes were nice and fluffy.

One of the cashier worker cheated me on the change. I paid 100$ note and she changed me with 20$ less. I suddenly walked back to her to ask for the remaining 20$. Without a word, she returned me the 20$ note. I hope it was just an error but she knew that she wrongly gave the money to me.... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
