Came here due to reviews and location near our hotel. As we walked it was rammed but we only waited 10 mins for a table of 4. As we sat down the que was out of the door. The menu was excellent and prices really good. The waiter was excellent and friendly. Definitely worth a breakfast visit.

I had gone by Yolk many times so I went in to have a late lunch. I tried to find their smallest serving of an egg type plate and I got an egg scramble. It came out and was a ton of food, lots of cheese and some egg. I realized there was a reason I had not gone in.... More

The food is great. It's nice and clean and the service is great as well. Everyone is really nice and the service is fast. Red velvet French toast is a must try!!! There's cream cheese on the inside ( just a heads up) but it was the best French toast I ever had

The food here is definitely a cut above your average eggs and bacon place. Fresh squeezed orange and strawberry juice was just amazing. The menu was really creative: a huge waffle had yogurt, two kinds of fruit and granola sprinkled on top with real maple syrup. Omelets had interesting ingredients and eggs, bacon, toast and pancakes were perfectly cooked. The... More

Having just run a 10km race earlier that morning, I was starving. I have been in Yolk on several occasions over the past few years, and it NEVER disappoints. The food is excellent, the coffee cup is constantly overflowing (and it's tasty) and service is forever swift and sincere. The only one criticism is that on weekends, it gets crowded... More

After a night of celebrating a Cubs win, this was a ray of sun. Clean, great options and good food. Add a nice pot of coffee and your day is going to be a good one.

Downtown Chicago! Checked in on line via yelp and walked over as it was an hr on the wait list. The place was packed but my table was ready right in time. Had the skirt steak and eggs. Very well prepared and came out very quickly. Great place but highly recommend you visit a site such as yelp or similar... More

Located in Streeterville at Ohio and McClurg. Lots of big, bright windows and plentiful seating. Quick service on a weekday morning. $10.50 meat-and-eggs combo (choice of bacon, sausage, Cdn bacon, ham steak) includes seasoned red potatoes and a carb was good, and eggs cooked perfectly. $2.75 hot tea was very strong with a large handful of loose tea leaves.

I had the chicken & waffles and it was great. I haven't had c&w many times so not much to compare to, but it hit the spot. The waitress was very nice. It got busy while we were there so I'm sure the wait increased, but we got there early.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
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 the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
