This little place has a lot to offer. Stopped in for breakfast two days in a row so we could sample more fare. Chicken fried steak and crepes were great. Very friendly staff. Fast service even during the busiest times.

Went here on TripAdvisor recommendations and the place really lived up to them. In Chicago for a couple of days and went both mornings for breakfast. The service and food were fantastic and would highly recommend.

When we asked for a good place to get breakfast, several people mentioned West Egg. It was a great package: food, service, convenience. My friend and I both chose one of the skillet servings. It was substantial and tasty.

We were a group of 7 and it was late morning. Looked a long line but we were seated in a matter of minutes. Service and food was great with a good selection. Would definitely recommend trying and will go back when returning to Chicago.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
