the french toast is so good and the fresh fruit is very taste. The different type of dish is great because you would never put together some of dish.

Sweet server. Menu explained well. Food beautifully presented and arrived relatively quickly. Coffee refills plentiful. My french toast was cold which rather detracted from the experience- was still tasty tho. My partners steak was good he says. Customers arrive non-stop which is fascinating- many turned away as the place was mostly filled to capacity- time for a franchise guys! Acoustics are terrible here- we could barely hear each over the general noise. Not sure if its worthy of the top Chicago breakfast spot?

We have been here many times. The food is freshly made and it is made with love. It is a daytime only restaurant and it is often crowded because the food is so good. People travel from all parts of the City to dine here. Although dishes may sound like dishes in other restaurants - they are NOT because they have a unique twist. I don't like chicken but I love the chicken and waffles here. The portions are generous and the breakfasts are wonderful. The only downsides are the crowds and, because of them, the sound level is quite high.

I don't know how you like to wake up: if you need a quiet place to have a meditative start to your day, then look elsewhere than Batter & Berries. This place is always jumping, and has been jammed every time I've gone. That said, if you want a place that's noisy, lively, full of people, with food that comes in large portions, this might be the perfect place. I suspect that a fair number of patrons are having wake-up cocktails to help undo their partying of the night before: the drinks look sizable. Lots of different kinds of pancakes, waffles, egg dishes, etc. to explore. If you want to wake up to a party, this might be your perfect choice.

They are known for their french toast flight and for good reason. You get 4 different types of french toast, each one more delicious than the last. The prices are reasonable and the decor and atmosphere are great. Note that it can get loud so if that is not your scene maybe go somewhere else.
