Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was a very cute restaurant in a small house with service on two floors. Breakfast items are unique. We had the hash, which the server said was very "peppery", (green and red peppers) and it was. Didn't really care for it but server was spot on. Other items looked very good.

We found this restaurant through a search online and it was one of my all time favorite breakfasts. They are situated in an old apartment building that was converted to a 3 story restaurant with stairs or an elevator. It is a quaint little breakfast place that was jam packed!! We got there just before the rush and were seated... More

This restaurant is in a fabulous old house with 3 floors of tables serving breakfast and lunch. We were there for breakfast on our hotel's recommendation and it was great. The food and service were excellent as wa the ambiance. If you're looking for a great place for breakfast, this is it.

Had a great brunch in here in March. Food is excellent and great portions too - you won't need to eat much later !! Spread over 3 floors in a lovely building and outside space too. Service was great.

Visited as part of a weekend in Chicago. We arrived at just the right time as a queue formed for tables after we took the last one! Friendly and efficient staff. Extensive breakfast/brunch menu. I had sausage waffles which were delicious! Good coffee and proper freshly squeezed orange juice.

We went here for breakfast before leaving the city. Everything was fine, the hostess that greeted us was super friendly. But our issues were that we didn't get our toasts or extra turkey bacons that we had ordered. Then the waitress said that she couldn't separate our bills and that was hard because two of us were paying cash and... More
