Breakfast in The Loop

This cheerful diner is worth the long wait – you'll dig into the best traditional breakfast in the South Loop. The five-egg omelets include healthy options (the Iron Man is made from egg whites and comes loaded with veggies and avocado), while sweets lovers have stacks of cinnamon-roll French toast and Nutella crepes to drench in syrup.

Scores of big salads, sandwiches and burgers are on hand for those feeling a bit more lunch-y. Yolk is a local chain, with a handful of other branches around town.
