We enjoyed a great breakfast with good coffee, although the premises were slightly gloomy. My husband had a croissant and I had a joyously stodgy cinnamon roll.

I got the spinach and avocado flat with a side of oatmeal.. the sandwich was good but the oatmeal hit the spot on this cold rainy morning. My husband got the bacon and eggs pannini and he said it was delicious.

We stopped in for coffee and breakfast. Nice selection of foods and everything we had--from the bacon egg panini to the bakery items (cookies and cake) to the coffee--was delicious. Would recommend!

Quaint cafe on Michigan St. and Riverwalk. Great coffee shop, bakery and sit-down cafe among the high-rises. Great location at the South end of Magnificent Mile. Great place to start your day.

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

There are a variety of entree scramblers, and paninis. We enjoyed the "flats"--lots of creative stuff in a flatbread. Also they have oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt.
