We always make it a point to stop here for breakfast during a Chicago stay. We both had omelets, which were big and filled with ingredients. The bread for toast is thick-cut and perfect for their homemade marmalade. Don't forget to start with a free...More

The food is not fancy or over the top, it is the excellent service that is over the top. We have visited several times over the years and thoroughly enjoyed the bacon pecan waffles and the eggs Benedict today. Our waitress kept our coffees filled...More
