This little eatery located on State Street near Adams across from the Red Line train is a great place for breakfast. The regular pancakes were delicious along with the potato pancakes (5). Opens early. Offers all day breakfast. Fast eats as well.

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
