We saw that Yolk was highly rated and within walking distance of our hotel so we had to check it out. Luckily, we found it on Yelp and were able to put our name on the list before we arrived. This saved a LOT of time. The place was completely buzzing when we got there until we left. The secret... More

This place was packed and we waited 20 minutes for a table. Bacon and eggs arrived very undercooked and oatmeal was just barely warm. They brought new bacon and it was so overcooked we left it. Doesn't seem it should be that hard to get breakfast cooked correctly.

Great breakfast. So popular-you'll have to wait. Once you sit down-quick, excellent service. Tried the tour de france-choice of three breakfast pastries-all excellent.

Surprisingly disappointed. A waiter from a restaurant we went to for dinner previously had recommended this place for breakfast so we had high hopes. I liked the bright sunny atmosphere so I thought it was promising. Unfortunately, our food was brought out cold and the waitress didn't come to check in on us until it was too late. I ordered...

Always love a good breakfast/brunch and this was pretty fabulous!! Super fresh omelette with the perfect amount of veggies and turkey sausage and didn't drown it in cheese. Fruit was unbelievably fresh and ripe. Belgian waffle was perfect! They had fresh squeezed strawberry orange juice that was a fantastic surprise!! Loved it. Wait staff was very friendly and on the...

If you like breakfast, this is the place to go. The menu had all the traditional breakfast items along with some creative ones! Kids and parents both loved their meals. Food was very plentiful. Service was quick despite being very crowded at 11am on a Tuesday. Only warning I would give is that this is not an inexpensive breakfast spot.... More

Very good breakfast! The only downfall was having to grab water glasses off another table as ours didn't have any. The water pitcher was on the table and like warm. Be sure to grab a mint when you pay at the counter there are ones covered in chocolate! Yum!

Just a great breakfast, wonderful service and happy people all around. An omelet with cheese grits, Belgian waffles with red potatoes, Nutella Chocolate Crepes, French toast with sausage the size of hot dogs. Too much food for all of us but just a great place. Visit, you will not be sorry.

Just had breakfast here on a busy Sunday morning. Definitely use the No Wait app to check the wait times and put your name on the list. We only had a 5 minute wait. The service was great even though we had a waitress in training. The waiter training her was fantastic and was doing a great job instructing her.... More

Visited about 10 minutes after they open on a Sunday, we were able to sit down immediately. Service was friendly and food came out quickly. Each item on our plates, the Farm House and the Yolk Allstar Combo, were served luke warm and lacking flavor. The women's bathroom was dirty, which was odd considering they had just opened. It was...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
