The food was great, in fact, everything was great until I was waiting by the door for my husband to pick me up. It was pouring rain outside, so after our meal I waited inside by the door out of the way. A few minutes...went by & I along with a couple others waiting for rides were asked to move outside to wait (assumed he was management, he didn’t introduce himself or have a name tag on). The others said they were waiting on an Uber and he said to wait outside, they can’t have anyone standing by the door. We were out of the way, not blocking any traffic coming in or out. If we weren’t paying customers, I would understand why we couldn’t wait inside. They also had umbrellas by the door but didn’t offer us any, which I thought was rude. Next time, if we visit again, I’ll just wait at my table if there is any bad weather so I don’t get kicked out again.More

The wait can be long but the service is really fast and the food is quite good. I would consider going back on future travels, their specialty pancake selection was better than other places

The food was so so good! A little pricy for breakfast food but you do get a lot. I unfortunately could not finish it all and sadly had to leave the leftovers since I was flying home that day! Our waitress was so kind and...gave lots of recommendations!More

Excellent but crowded place to eat breakfast. Be prepared to wait but the service is good once you’re seated. I got the Oreo S’mores pancakes. It’s pretty rich and you get 5 of them, but it was so tasty. I doubt you could go wrong...getting anything on their menu.More

We wanted the best pancakes and found reviews on this place. They weren’t wrong! We enjoyed it so much, we went back again. They are known for their pancakes but have plenty of other options. Delicious!

On our second morning in Chicago, we went for a walk in Grant and Millennium Parks, and as we returned to Michigan, my wife looked for a breakfast place. We are so glad we found this place. I got an omelet and my wife got...scrambled eggs but both came with pancakes. They were amazing and this was way more food than we could eat. We sat outside and were very comfortable in the shade. Again can't say enough about how great this was for breakfast. We totally found by accident but if you are looking for a good breakfast in the Loop, this is it.More

I love a good breakfast place. This is the place! Don't mess around with the eggs. Just go for the Pancakes. You will not be sorry. Even if there is a wait - stick around. It will be worth it!

Had to experience Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe after reading the reviews and seeing those yummy photos on Trip Advisor. Staying at the Fairmont Chicago so it was very convenient 5 minute walk over to this location on Randolph St. There is always a lineup outside...every day all day. But they have it all very organized and very efficient. Had a 20 minute wait on a Saturday morning. To see the menu you have to scan the code on your phone. If you ask for a menu they will give you one. I had the veggie omelette which comes with hash browns. My omelette definitely needed salt and pepper for taste. What is great is for $2.00 more you can add an order of 2 specialty pancakes. I ordered the Berry Bliss Pancakes. WOW is that delicious! No syrup needed. And the fresh blueberries and blackberries on the side are so fresh and sweet. Portions are huge and so are the prices. Cost me for 1 person breakfast with tax and tip $30.00.More

Breakfast was good, but not the best. I tried the banana nut pancakes and my husband had eggs benedict. Our waiter was too busy flirting to get cream and sugar for our coffee before it got cold.

Went one day, came back the next! Such good food and very fast service! Day 1 we had savoury meals, brisket hash which was very good and the fried chicken biscuits, this was unbelievable! Day 2 we shared an omelette with the hash brown, again,...so good! Then shared the banana coconut cream pancakes, unreal! Highly recommend coming here for sweet or savoury food. Both as good as each otherMore

We enjoyed the breakfast here immensely. Banana chocolate chip pancakes were delicious. Tons of gluten free options. Service was outstanding and the food came out very quick even though it was incredibly busy. Great job by all staff and management. Super impressive!

I am guessing it’s ok with so many outside tables as some of them are almost on the sidewalk next to the street.
