The café is beautiful. Every little (and big) girl’s dream. The experience is catered to young girls, and they are able to bring their doll. The food is good - breakfast is our favorite! It’s a treat for the whole family.

You come here because your daughter wants to eat with her doll. My six year old LOVED it. My chicken sandwich was good. The whole area is expensive so the prices are reasonable for the area. I was not impressed with the service.

Lovely afternoon tea at the cafe. Servers were so sweet, including my daughter and her doll in the festivities. Super stylist paid attention to detail when styling the doll hair.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

I believe you are able to order a cake even if you are not having a party there. Call the customer serve number that is available online and they will confirm it and you can then make your reservation and order the cake.
