We just loved this place! Breakfast was so good, we were here two days in a row. The protein bowl is excellent, as are the breakfast tostados. Croissants are buttery and flaky and the chai latte is wonderful. But the best is the chicken and...waffles - wow! The staff is delightful! Thanks for great food and service. We will be back!More

Delicious croissants and coffee. One of my daughters and I ordered chocolate croissants and they warmed them up for us. It was sensational. My other daughter ordered a Nutella croissant that was also warmed up and was extremely disappointed when compared to our chocolate croissants....I’m not gonna to fault the review for this, but the Nutella was extremely puny compared with the amazing chocolate so don’t get fooled into getting a Nutella one. Cappuccino was delicious and just what I wanted.More

A quaint little bakery/restaurant in downtown. The coffee was top notch. Chicken and bacon infused waffles were good but chicken was a little overcooked. Came by daily for coffee during my Chicago stay.

So, to qualify the score, i should point out that the place was very busy when we visited. The coffee itself was pretty good and the croissant was ok. Breakfast sandwich was good. What I most focused on was the service. During our 55 minute...wait for our breakfast (we were told 25 minutes), I encountered some friendly service as well as some quite indifferent service, particularly with the order takers. It seems to be fairly common occurence in Chicago as we encountered it frequently in our visit to the city. Not helpful and speaking very quickly when giving information, and then overpromising on the wait time to top it off, made the customer experience abysmal. After all that, it is difficult to give this restaurant any better than an average score.More

I was on TA and realized that, despite how I went here everyday while in Chicago, I had yet to write a review on it! My mom and I were in Chicago for the first week of October 2020 and I needed a coffee shop...(preferably local/small business) that I could run over to in the morning for coffee/tea and some bites to eat. Did some research before we arrived and this place caught my attention. Mainly the pictures of that rainbow cake, but it was also only about 10 minutes from us! As I mentioned above, I went here every morning and got morning fixings for my mom and I. Latte with 2% for her, and I eventually settled on the matcha latte with almond milk. Definitely some of the best matcha I have ever had, and I am a matcha snob. It can't be too sweet, but I also don't want it tasting like grass. I usually can't trust cafes to make it without putting too much sweetener in it, but here they do it RIGHT. Just a subtle hit of honey is all it needs. For food, THANK GOD FOR THAT AVOCADO TOAST! My mom is difficult when it comes to breakfast: she doesn't like anything sweet and she doesn't like eggs... so what else is left? Their AMAZING avocado toast. Sourdough slathered in smashed avocado, crisp greens, and cotija cheese. Needless to say, she loved it, and she loved it every single morning when I would bring it to her in our Airbnb. For me, I had something different every day. A sandwich one day, protein bowl the next, some salad another time, however my favorite dish I tried had to be the huevos rancheros. As a frequent visitor of Mexico, huevos rancheros are something I eat on the regular while I'm there. Crunchy tostadas with a delicious red sauce and chorizo mixture, topped with a fried egg? Yum! My only regret is I wish I ordered it more. Oh, and how could I forget the pastries? I remember the absolute first day I went here, after I paid I stood off to the side, right where all of those freshly baked pastries are on full-display. Cupcakes, cookies, muffin, cakes, croissants, morning buns, you name it they got it. So what did I do after five minutes of staring at an adorable vanilla cupcake with rainbow sprinkles?.... I got right back in line and bought that cupcake... along with a to-go serving of chia seed pudding that I was eyeballing (also delicious). And yes, I did end up buying a slice of that rainbow cake. I ate it on my flight back to San Francisco, where food was not served, and it hit the SPOT. One pro-tip: Get here early. This place gets busy FAST. I recommend an hour after they open LATEST, earlier if you want to sit inside. But overall, a true gem in downtown Chicago.More

Ate here after walking around and seeing some sights in Chicago on an unseasonably warm day in November. We all LOVED our sandwiches, but I have to say of the baked goods/treats we tried, the consensus was they looked better than they tasted. The goodies...weren’t bad, just okay. It was lovely to sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous day!More

My family and I frequented Goddess and the Baker several times in the days leading up to and following the Chicago Marathon. The breakfast sandwiches here are superb with the right amount of spice on excellent croissants. Additionally, baked goods here are decorative and delicious....We enjoyed this location and look forward to our return.More

We had breakfast here for the first time and enjoyed it. I had the scrambled egg croissant with turkey bacon, my husband had the breakfast sandwich and a latte,, and our daughter had huevos rancheros. My croissant sandwich was very good. The croissant was flaky...and the there was plenty of egg. I'm not a bacon fan but the turkey bacon was flavorful. My husband liked his sandwich but he couldn't really taste the bacon because there wasn't much of it. The sandwich was quite large with eggs, avocado and cheese. Our daughter liked her huevos rancheros although she asked them not to put sour cream on top but they did anyhow.More

No, I didn't see anything about restricting meals to certain times. It may be that the restaurant runs out of stuff, but that seems unlikely. Call them: (312) 877-5176
