Lou Mitchell's

Breakfast | West Loop

Eaters advise "come hungry" to this West Loop "king of breakfast", a "quintessential" "Chicago icon" since 1923 where "oversized" portions of "hearty", "high-quality" diner fare like "lighter than air scrambled eggs" and "amazing French toast" are served morning through afternoon via "friendly" staffers who "have been working there for 20 years or more"; "you'll rub elbows with workers from the stock exchange and other executives" in the "crowded" "old-time" environs, but "get there early to avoid the lines" – though late-risers are "treated to donut holes and Milk Duds" while they wait.
