Our family of 4 had a delicious breakfast. Our daughter loved her yogurt parfait. The pancakes were fluffy and light. The bacon thick and crispy. Service was friendly and quick. Lots of options, try them you'll be a repeat customer!

Staying at the intercontinental hotel which was a short walk from the cafe. After looking over the room service menu and the hotel restaurant menu we decided to try this cafe due to reviews.

If your looking for something light for breakfast and not to heavy, I would recommend this place. We ate here twice while we were in Chicago. We both had different items both days and neither one of us was disappointed with what we got. Prices weren't bad. We left full, but not stuffed, which is the way we like it.

This place is modern and inviting. There's large windows which makes it very bright. The staff were very friendly and upbeat. However the food was nothing special. The portions are small and they don't even butter the toast. ( butter provided was rock hard) Far better choices in downtown Chicago.

This is a local chain--but don't let that deter you. There are many options for breakfast and lunch and very fair prices. Soup and salad/ Soup and half sandwich? etc.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
