It wasn't that amazing, but it was about average of all foods you can find at a typical breakfast restaurant.

After move my to LA, I miss going to Yolk. It blows away every breakfast/brunch place in LA. The food is absolutely delicious and speaks for itself. If Bongo Room (around the corner and equally delicious) is busy or you have a large party, head here because the wait will be shorter.

pretty basic breakfast food, and a huge menu! but not that many green options. someday I'd love for a restaurant to offer salad greens as a side with breakfast, but until then I'm just dreaming.

The South Loop Yolk location isn't as hectic or chaotic as the River North one.

First to Review

We first walked in and I'm positive 3 staffers walked by without saying hello, even the girl at the register.... HELLO. That's the first thing you do when customers walked in. But oh well. We were hungry and this seemed like a good place to eat before heading to the Shedd or Field museum. On the plus side, our waitress was much more friendly.

Yolk has a ton of different options for a very moderate price. Plates were beautifully assembled when they came out. However, nothing too spectacular about the food here. Ordered the French toast combo, which is comparable to many other breakfast places, but where was my powdered sugar?! Tsk tsk Yolk. Fresh squeezed orange juice was awesome. And tried a bit of the Works omelette and that was really good. Will definitely have to try something else the next time I'm here.

Omelette was okay in my book. Portion size was perfect for two people.
