“Simply Awesome!!!”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

They had a variety of selection. Loved their daily soup offerings. Great taste and great ambiance. Great coffee. Spent the entire morning without being bothered by anyone.

Was told about their $5 drink specials...Yum...I will be sure to come back to try them out!!

“Great little find”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

The shrimp salad was out of this world. Very fresh and delightful. Chicken curry soup is very tasty. Not too much curry. Lots of chicken in it, like homemade. Vegetables were very fresh. Crab cake sandwich was one of the best I ever had. Will be back for sure when I'm in the neighborhood.

“Daily Specialty Cocktails”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

Little Branch has great drink specials wed-sun...I am a huge fan of $5 mojitos on Thursdays and $5 margaritas on Fridays after work. Plus, the $5 bloody marys and mimosas for weekend brunch are a steal! Despite being small and off the main road, the bartenders mix up awesome cocktails with all fresh ingredients. What I love most is that it almost has a speak-easy feel, with the cafe part serving coffee in the front and a small bar, almost hidden, in the back. Definitely would recommend a stop by!

“Perfect city get away.”
Reviewed 10 February 2013 via mobile

I was in Chicago yesterday to visit Field Museum and had little extra time to kill. My search engine showed this cafe hiding in the building forest. Little Branch Cafe - a perfect suiting name for this hidden gem, tucked in the corner of a high rise condo building didn't look too inviting at first. Inside was a whole different story. Interior featured wooden floor, wooden chairs, and even bar stools made of tree chunks, remind you of being in a small forest.
I ordered Denver omelette and Mascarpone french toast. The omelette had the usual ingredients, but this one had pepper jack cheese, creating a new flavor. The french toast had mascarpone cheese in between 2 thin slices of toast, surrounded by sweet, creamy vanilla sauce topped with blueberry compote. A must try!
I washed all down with their mimosa - a weekend specialty for only $5. It was very refreshing.
The staff was really friendly. Even the head chef came out every now and then to check up on the customers.
I would strongly recommend this place to anyone visiting this area. You won't regret!!
