This place can get really busy but my advice is: wait in line because it's worth it. We'd read the great reviews so came here our first day in town ... and then the next two days as well! Clean, bright, inviting environment, great food and good service. What's not to like about that?!

I had a great breakfast at the Yolk! They are nice people and service was exceptional! I sat at the bar so I was treated like royalty. Great menu with a variety of food for everyone. I went around 11:00 on a week day and it was pretty crowded. They are very efficient though, so the food is ready quickly.... More

We came here for brunch and we saw all the reviews, and know we walked by quite a few Yolk locations so we thought it'll be easier. However, the wait was still about 30 minutes. It was really good though! We really enjoyed it!

...you can't do better than Yolk. A great way to start a busy day. All kinds of omelets and egg dishes, pancakes, fruit, coffee--we walked miles every day during our stay, always fueled by a good start at Yolk.

Well, to make a long story short, it's breakfast and it's a typical breakfast joint. We had the All-Star Combo. It was alright for the price of $11. It was fast and tasted fine for breakfast. So that's what you should expect. Just keeping it real!!

We were told there would be a 35 minute wait. After about 45 minutes we still were not seated. Although we received text confirmation, they had no record of us on the waiting list. They did seat us immediately after this, The waiter was very nice and helpful. I had the chicken and waffles. While the bacon waffle was cooked... More

I ordered a vegetarian plate that comes with tortillas with melted cheese and scrambled eggs on top, besides 3 slices of avocado. Staff is friendly and very quick... But maybe too quick because the food look like it got thrown from a distance on my plate. It was a lot of food, which in general is not a problem for... More

We stayed 3 nights in Chicago and ate breakfast at Yolk TWICE. The plate portions are large enough to share and they have a fabulous menu. They do charge for splitting plates, but order another side and the fee is waived. The bonus at this location was minimal wait time and lots of seating options.

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.
