I have fond memories of sitting upstairs with my family on snowy winter days, drinking hot chocolate and playing scrabble... It's a wonderful setting, and the food is very nice, if not cheap. Definitely one of my favorite places in Chicago (if only for sentimental...More

I used to really like this place, and when I needed to head into Chicago I would come in for coffee and breakfast while I do work. The last two times have not been good, and I won't be going back, which is too bad...More

Nice breakfast. Very healthy and tasty. Kind waitress. Recommended by People Magazine. For sure the best breakfast after the Chicago marathon

When there isn't a line, when the coffee machine is working, and with pleasant staff this place is a wonderful local gem! It's very dive-y and old inside, but the outdoor seating is spacious. The food - pastries and sandwiches are nice too.

Set back on a fairly busy road in a lovely old building we visited a few times during our stay. Very relaxed atmosphere inside and out and good coffee near Fullerton L station. Garden set under trees to avoid the hot sun.

Stumbled across this place walking to my hostel from Fullerton station. I decided to give it a try that afternoon. Inside appears like an antique/historic home turned restaurant, which offers a cozy, coffeehouse type vibe. The staff was friendly and there are multiple sections to...More

There was a great selection of food and the service was great. However, I can't give it a higher score because there is a true lack of value here. The food tasted fine but the cost was way too high for we were actually eating....More
