A Taste of Real Orange Marmalade

Early birds can find Lou Mitchell's fresh baked donuts with a golden cup of coffee with their eyes closed. Breakfast starts with a slice of fresh orange and a sweet prune, while you choose your best morning breakfast. Try the corned beef hash with potatoes and three eggs to start your day. Plus fresh toast and two choices of jelly or homemade orange marmalade the way my Grandmother made it. A real treat is to hav... view more

Tropicana instead of Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice

Instead of Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice they brought me Tropicana with pulp for $4.95. When I asked waitresses is it Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice she respond YES and left immediately.

Great coffee!

We ate here twice last week while visiting Chicago . The first visit I was blown away with the service, food and the coffee was great! I love milk duds so that was a big score. The second day, not so much. Our server was horrible (and I mean horrible). Not sure how the coffee was that day because after asking for it 2 times, I never was served a cup of coffee. Not sure I'll go back the next time but definitely worth... view more

Lou Mitchell's Exceeds Expectations

The food was delicious, coffee excellent, service friendly and upbeat. I went off-hours (after typical breakfast ""rush"" hours so I can't speak to service for the average joe on the way to work but my experience was excellent and will go again next time in Chicago.

Famous & Delicious

Lou Mitchell's is one of those landmark Chicago eateries. You have to try it at least once when you come to Chicago due to its great location and history. The food is spectacular and the food generally comes out pretty quick. The service can be good or bad, but I've had generally good experiences. It can be a little tight with space, but that is part of the fun. While you're there, make sure to get their milkduds and... view more

Neighborhood feel in the big city!

My wife and I showed up on a Monday afternoon looking forward to some home cooking. We were presently surprised to be treated to free donut holes and milk duds while we waited for a table. We were seated within minutes and proceeded to order from a friendly host. I had the Denver omelette, and my wife had the breakfast sandwich with sausage and eggs inside. Our food arrived within ten minutes and received such good p... view more

Comfort and Familiar

Even as out-of-towners, we were made to feel at home at Lou's. Very warm, inviting establishment - if you like this style of dining (which we do!). Very filling food - we ordered way too much - I swear they use eight eggs in one of their omeletes. Highly recommend the thin sliced potatoes with cheddar cheese and feta - share with the table!
