We went here to have breakfast for lunch (they serve breakfast all day). The service and the food were excellent and the coffee was delicious. All our food was fresh and made with quality ingredients. Inside was cozy and had character, it was just a...nice space to spend an hour enjoying some food and coffee. Looking forward to eating here again.More

Great breakfast after a walk nearby. We did not have reservations but walked in and the staff could not have been nicer. Wonderful servers, great food, great price and a local gem of a place. Will be back for sure!

What a find! I searched restaurants for breakfast near my hotel and 3rd Coast popped up. The reviews were great and I like helping local restaurant owners. I was not disappointed! I had the Veggie Hash and thick sourdough taost - I'm happily full and...very content. The wait staff is super nice and attentive - plus, they do a great job spacing their patrons out and sanitizing between visits. I highly recommnet 3rd Coast if you are in the area. I wish I lived closer.More

Wow. We just moved into the area and went on a scouting mission to find a breakfast, local spot that has a neighborhood feel to it. This is the winner. Breakfast was great, had the Mexican omelette, that should be split between two. Most sides...are individually priced..$1 for a side of sour cream? $1.5 per slice of bacon? Aside from these minor irritants, worth it and definitely going back. Would like to check out the sandwiches and dinner.More

Hello and thank you for the review! I appreciate the feedback on the minor irritants that kept us from a 5 star review. We priced things that way due to customer feedback. Some people wanted 5 or 6 sticks of bacon and others 1...So we...More

Enjoyed a very wide menu selection. Some are unique but some are classic recipies, which I prefer. Prices good. Cute decor. Right down from Claridge House hotel, another great hidden gem. Walked to the new restoration hardware too.

When visiting family in Chicago, we always stop for brunch at 3rd Coast. The food and service is great, and the prices are very reasonable for Chicago fare. Omelets, soups and salads were delicious. Danny, our server, was very friendly and attentive, even when it...became busier. Highly recommended.More

Arrived late night on a Sunday, this place was right next to the hotel. Went in and had the Cajun Chicken Penne and it was great. Service was good this night and food was still fresh even though they were closing in approximately 1 hr....Food was so good, I went back the next morning to have breakfast. For breakfast I had the breakfast taco's and they were amazing. The spicy avocado salsa that was served with it was great. Good way to start off your morning.More

We stayed nearby and this spot saved as from a terrible breakfast at our hotel. Service is good, more or less friendly (depending on the waiter) and the prices are reasonable. I found my blueberry pancakes a bit on a dry side, egg Benedict was...wonderful...More
