We could not pick only two dishes we decided to try three dishes: chicken quesadilla, crepes with custard and vegetarian omelet. We rinsed it down with two smoothies mango and berry. We had to wait little bit for food but it was worthy.

We were here for brunch when we flew into Chicago for a week. Great cafe. We had their smoothies and the crepes both sweet and savory. I suggest the Ginger Zing smoothie. Friendly staff and delicious food promptly served even during a rush.
