South Loop breakfast-and-lunch spot specializing in--what else--eggs.
Perhaps self-evidently, the specialty at this sunny South Loop breakfast-and-lunch spot is eggs, offered in several different Benedict styles (for example, theres an Irish Benny topped with corned beef hash) as well as in omelets and frittatas or served just plain old sunny-side up. I opted for a West Coast crepe filled with scrambled eggs, avocado, mushrooms, and cheese, and though it said sweet crepe right there on the menu, I still found it odd with all the other savory flavors. As for the eggs Benedict (we went for the classic version), despite the fact that it was crowded on the plate by huge chunks of fresh fruit (Who wants fruit covered in hollandaise? my companion asked), it was very good. In addition to egg dishes, Yolks menu features a variety of pancakes, waffles, and French toast, as well as sandwiches and salads for the lunch crowd. The custom-roasted coffee was significantly better than typical diner swill and refilled often, and on a weekday service was friendly and prompt.
