A little pricey but good atmosphere. Although we went for lunch, they also offered a brunch menu. Dinner has a more expansive menu.

Fun and very high energy spot. We had a large group of nine without reservations (they don't take them) for Sunday brunch and it was busy. Despite being packed they worked hard to accommodate us and get us situated outside. Service was great -we had an experienced server who efficiently serviced our table. She was assisted by other staff with... More

Cafe Touche is located in the Edison Park neighborhood of Chicago, not a place where you would expect to find a French bistro. When you walk in the door, you see the warm and intimate space with tin ceilings and that sets a nice tone for the meal. The four of us sampled three appetizers and four entrees. The onion... More

Went here for Sunday brunch. Had the ham and cheese omelette. It was delicious, had potatoes on the side and fruit. Mimosas are $10 all you can drink! Bloody Mary's $12 all you can drink. It was crowded but we had a reservation.

We found this by accident. I was in the area and was looking for a place to have brunch. Just googled and looked at the list. This place looked appealing, menu looked delicious, so it was the winner. Actually, we were the winners. They start by serving banana bread, while you look over the menu. It was scratch made, and... More

Interior of the bistro is well executed in the appearance and gives good feeling of French bistro. Good attention to details, white table service and open bar makes for a visit very pleasant. Very good, knowledgeable, attentive, well trained and honest service. The food selections are well represented and range from French, French accented, Cajun [New Orleans] and touch of... More

Cafe Touche has always been more edgy and unique than most restaurants around this neighborhood . Upon entering, I always feel that every turn I am entering an old manor home with century old decor, entirely new experience. We were welcomed by JOSH, a generous and welcoming server who, from the moment we sat down until the very last moment we... More

Located in an area that is heavy with restaurants, Cafe Touche surpasses them for brunch. I have to admit we haven't yet tried it at any other time, but the brunches have been perfect. If the weather is good, and you are lucky enough to get an outside seat, that is a definite plus. I loved the Brennan's New Orleans... More

We visited our son and his husband in Chicago after Christmas. They took us and one of their friends to dinner at Touché. I had trouble deciding what to have. I mostly eat a vegetarian diet, and they had 3 great looking vegetarian entrees, but in the end I chose the Coq A Vin. Oh was it delicious. My wife... More
