My five year old son and I went there early one Monday morning on our first full day in Chicago. The kid loves pancakes and there were several other things on the online menu that looked appealing to me. The whole experience was perfect. My...breakfast burrito was so good, so flavorful. My son's pancakes were also excellent. Our server was kind and fun to interact with. Would go back to this place time and time again.More

We went for Breakfast on a Monday morning, the place was crowded for a Monday! However we didn't have to wait and were seated right away. Though when we left the place there were too many people waiting to get a table. I was not...in a mood for chocolate, so ordered Belgian Waffle with maple syrup. The waffles were the BEST I have had so far! Super light and made to perfection! My husband ordered Maple Latte and Vegan Breakfast Hash. He loved it and so did I ! The BF hash was flavorful. I envy the people who stay in Chicago and get to visit this place often! I would definitely be a regular here.More

We were in Chicago for a few days and ended up having bfast here 2x as we loved it so much. My friend is gluten-free and was thrilled with the waffles she had. I had pancakes one day (enormous serving, no way to eat it...all) with side of bacon and they were fantastic pancakes compared to the usual fare in bfast places. The other day I had an omelet and again a huge portion -- but it was a perfect one -- I customize it with cheddar, mushrooms, and tomatoes, and they had just the right amount of each ingredient mixed throughout. Service was superb. One day they told us the wait would be 30 mins and we were seated in 10. The other day was a weekday and we were earlier than the mob (arriving there at 9 am). They did not rush you either. Also recommend the fresh squeezed orange juice.More

The service and food are outstanding. Unfortunately, they don't take reservations. That said, the food is well worth the wait. I've gone several times and ordered different items from the menu and have been delighted each time.

Food is amazing at Wildberry, Is the best place for brunch/breakfast in town. You need to try the Wildberry Orange juice and the skillets are top of the notch. 100% reccomended. For kids, chocolate chips pancakes are the favorites!. Enjoy!

Great place for breakfast. Had a very wide variety of breakfast meals. Pancakes were the best. Omelets come in very large sizes. Service was also great. Will recommend for family and friends.

I think I would have given this restaurant a 5 star rating if I'd gotten a different dish. I ordered the Signature Berry Bliss French Toast. It was good, but the texture of the toppings was a little off-putting to me. It was cooked well...and tasted fine, but it was not excellent.More

Fabulous breakfast spot any day of the week! The hash brown skillets are a win and the pancakes are delicious! Always love a bottomless cup of coffee. The staff is friendly and the service is quick. Worth the wait!

This place has the best breakfast in Chicago we ever had! When you see a crowd of people outside waiting for a seat, it's your first clue! Our wait on a Monday morning was about 20 minutes but it was well worth it! Generous servings,...great tasting, efficient service, given how full the restaurant was. Good location, across the street from Millenium Park and a half block from Michigan Avenue. We are from out of state, thus we have tried a few breakfast restaurants in Chicago. This place is the best we have tried!More

I am guessing it’s ok with so many outside tables as some of them are almost on the sidewalk next to the street.

Difficult, may have to walk a few blocks. Just let the family out to get in line and go park the car.

Dear Jack. I am not sure but the staff are friendly and very accommodating. I would go old school and just ring them to ask before you arrive -- save yourself some time. But this is a great great breakfast place, either... More
