“Solid No-Frills Coffee-Shop/Grill in the Heart of Chicago”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

The food was at least a solid 3.5, but the price kicked this well into 4 star category. This is a basic no-frills coffee-shop/grill, with more counter seating than booths. You don’t come here for Eggs Benedict or Crepes…you come here for Biscuits & Gravy, Corned Beef Hash, Pancakes or an Omelet…all with a side of perfectly cooked greasy Hash Browns. It’s good to know there are still places like this in the heart of Chicago. Note: it’s a cash only spot, but considering a huge breakfast and a hot drink will run you about $10, that shouldn’t be an issue. Enjoy!!

“Great Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

This tiny little place is a great find for a traditional diner breakfast. My husband found them on the internet, and we were staying across the street at the Best Western, so we walked over. It was a really good idea.

There's a fast food restaurant across the street...but why? Will definitely return!

“Awesome Food, Awesome Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2012

Great food, most breakfast meals are under 6$. We ate there a few times and the food was consistent, fast and tasty. They only accept cash so keep that in mind.

Located across the street from Best Western River North. The food was good with a reasonable price. They offer breakfast specials and other daily specials.
