Craving an American breakfast, we were really pleased with this find. A proper American, slightly and idyllically dated, restaurant. We loved it in here. Very reasonably priced, certainly for Chicago, and a beautiful breakfast. Fab pancakes, and it really set us up for the day!

We stopped in for brunch and were not disappointed. The servings were generous and all delicious. Our waitress made it very enjoyable as she obviously loves her job. The Bloody Mary’s were worth it! I definitely would return.
