We went for breakfast. I had the Anaheim Panini. You order, get a number and they bring it to you. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. It was flavorful, the sourdough bread was tasty. I would definitely go again.

Lunch on a weekday afternoon. You walk up to the counter and order; they give you a number, you find a table and a runner brings the food a few minutes later. I ordered a Caesar salad with chicken, a beverage and a chocolate chip...More

We had an event and they provided our lunch. We had sandwiches that were halves which is great for meetings, plus a pear, cranberry, lettuce salad. The cookies were a fun addition

Good diverse food, nice location, reasonable prices. Quick service. Even the coffee better than Starbucks - why does everyone run to Srarbucks to get an expensive medium-quality average-tasting coffee when one can get one better here?

Staying at the nearby congress plaza we used this as our chosen breakfast option. Staff on the whole were pretty friendly and the food ticked all of our boxes to set us up for the day. Good value, good quality and quick service. Would recommend.

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
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one 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.
