Great atmosphere and good food. The interior is unique with a lot of graffiti and interesting surroundings. The food is good and service friendly. I didnt eat breakfast, but I hear it is their specialty.

Had my first Smoked Salmon omelet. Wonderful but a little heavy on the onions. Service was great. Loved the homemade wheat bread.

My husband and I were in town visiting one of our daughters who had a newborn, and this is where she and her husband have eaten before. They suggested it and it was not bad. I had a salad, but it came with a pesto herb dressing and I am just not a pesto person. So I tried about three... More

Great food, great prices and great service. Consistent throughout the years. Definitely a go-to place when we are in Hyde Park! Nice when we ask for potatoes and bacon to be crisp they actually ARE crisp!!!!

I remember this restaurant from the '60's when it was behind The Green Door Bookstore further down 57th street. Many many years have passed. It has a funky place of its own with dining upstairs and down. On a Saturday night around 6.30pm there was over 30mins. Wait for a table, but it was worth it. The pizzas are even... More

Had breakfast at Medici after Chicago Half Marathon. Even though place was packed we didn't have to wait very long. Fun bustling atmosphere. Our server was friendly and attentive. Food was great and arrived quickly. Definitely would come back for another visit.

I came here with my friends, the good thing about medici is you can bring your own beer and wine. I ordered a steak and fries, it was good only but nothing special. The place is cozy to chat with your friends.

We visited Medici several times during our trip to Hyde Park recently. This cafe serves delicious pastries, muffins, and sandwiches. We especially enjoyed the arugula, manchego cheese, and fig jam baguette sandwich, although there are many other great sandwiches to choose from. The coffee is excellent, too! The cafe also features several interesting flavors of ice cream, and there is... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This historic area is home to two of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful gardens, parks and green spaces; and ivy-adorned museums and other cultural institutions that speak to the city’s diversity and architectural beauty.
