I must have very different taste to the many positive reviewers. For me it was a busy food factory. Echoing eating areas inside with no windows. Dirty glasses. Weak coffee and burnt espresso drinks. Surprisingly busy. More of a truck stop diner but without the...More

Great breakfast menu, very accommodating staff and great service! Special menu requests are not a problem. Food was very good. I would highly recommend this place for breakfast; They also have a lunch menu.

When we visit Chicago, a stop at West Egg Cafe is a must! Their egg creations, fluffy pancakes, and delicious waffles make deciding on a breakfast item a challenge. My personal favorite is the Crunchberry pancake. It arrives loaded with granola and blueberries with a...More

West Egg is a great spot to go for breakfast and much better than the chain competitor which is frankly over-rated. Although the restaurant is usually busy, the line up is handled efficiently and wait times are minimal. The food is excellent and the service...More

Always a go too for breakfast when we are in town. This place is consistent. The eggs are always good. The menu has plenty of choices but is not overwhelming. There are plenty of healthy choices too.

My wife and I stayed in a nearby hotel. We eat breakfast here twice and were not disappointed. The portions were large and as a consequence we abandoned lunch! On our first visit I had the Best Western omelette with a side of corned beef...More

Disclosure: I love breakfast food, but this place is excellent aside from my bias. The food tastes amazing, the menu is expansive, and there were vegetarian options that made my day. We were able to sit down and relax, even with how busy the place...More

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
