Nearby, quick eats, fast service. This place is near major hotels in downtown Chicago, staff is friendly and there are many great options including eggs and crepes.

Actually, all of their omelets and skillets looked great, and the pancakes going by me looked amazing too! Great coffee and very timely service. You may have to wait a few minutes to get seated at peak times...

Great place downtown for breakfast. Plenty of seating, fast service, and delicious food. The breakfast potatoes are great. The coffee is not (but the fresh-squeezed orange juice makes up for it!).

I hesitate to share this great breakfast spot, because it is so wonderful. Excellent service always perfectly prepared and a real value in the heart of Gold Coast. You will not be disappointed and I highly recommend

Loved this place! I've been here a couple times and never had to wait to be seated. And the food came out in record time! The food was delicious and the portions were big. They have lots of options - something for everyone. Definitely recommend!

We walked all over town for a sit down breakfast place. We really enjoyed this place. We both had frittata and the potatoes were good too. Fast service even though they were busy

Food wad good. We both ordered the eggs Benny with Canadian bacon. We're Canadian, it wasn't bacon it was ham. Mine was under cooked. Romi took it back and made another one. Service was excellent. Food was just good. Washrooms were scary.

I used to live in Atlanta, where there is also a West Egg Cafe. When I saw this was place was close to my hotel, I was happy to check it out. I immediately knew this was not the same place, but it was fine....More

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
