Eggs Benedict was yummy. Chicken and waffles were filling. Good place for breakfast. Mimosas were never ending! Will come back to try other dishes.

I visited this restaurant 2 years ago and haven't stopped thinking about it since. There were so many good options on the menu that I just asked our awesome server to pick something for me. She asked 2 questions and came back with one of the most amazing meals I've had in my life. Seriously, notice that there's no 1... More

Cafe Touche is a cute little bistro in Edison Park. I had attempted to have brunch there in late Spring and found it noisy and overcrowded. However, on my recent visit, we were seated near the window and given a nice warm baguette and butter once seated. Our starter of brie was good, but not remarkable. However, my Atlantic Char...

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
