One of my favorite breakfast spots in Chicago. The service is quick, and the staff is friendly. Try the House Skillet or Nutella Banana French Toast!

The food here was absolutely delicious. You can tell it is all freshly made. I had the Stuffed Potato Pancakes and my partner had a frittata. The drinks were great too - Hisbcus Mimosa for me and El Diablo for him. The staff was super friendly and inviting.

Took my mom, siblings, brother-in-law and newborn nephew here to celebrate my mom's birthday and I can not be more pleased with everything! I ordered the Banana Nutella French Toast and the Skillet Club! The potatoes were amazing, the combination of broccoli, tomatoes, onions were refreshing, and the saltiness from the bacon was a perfect compliment! Not too savory, just perfect! The sweetness wasn’t overwhelming from the Nutella and banana on top of the French toast! You don’t need syrup (unless that’s your thing). Overall, the service was great! The waitress was very personable and sweet. Only thing to be aware of, it’s CASH only. ATM inside. That’s all. For sure coming back!!!
