Just like in Europe! Love the cookie that comes with your hot drink order. It's exactly how the cafe that I was familiar with in Switzerland serve their hot drinks. With a cookie! We had a black forest cake and a hot drink. The cake was tasty, very boozy which was perfect. Drink was too sweet so we asked for some milk to dilute the sweetness. The waitress was really pleasant and responded well during our interactions.I saw someone ordered a brunch plate that was loaded with nicely cut fruits. Will come back to try the brunch!

We often seem to enjoy a coffee/tea break here on the way back from downtown. Their coffee is one of the finest ever and the Lemon Ginger tea is also one of the best. It’s a great stopping place on the Southport/Addison corner; a short walk from Wrigley, and of course on the 152 Bus line.

My favorite breakfast place of all time. Every time someone comes into town, we come two or three times before they leave. The food is to die for, the chai is delightful, and the atmosphere is homey and romantic. A slice of Vienna in Wrigleyville. Excellent wait staff and line staff, too.

Phenomenal coffee!! Great sandwiches. The Viennese have been doing this coffee thing right for over 100 years. If you really like coffee, go and get some from Meinl!!

Still maintaining high quality of service, food, and interior. The Esterhazy torte is excellent, as is the strudel. Too bad the Lincoln Square location closed, but the Southport location is great, too.

One the best places to meet a friend for coffee, of course, and a light meal. Hot chocolate is great. Better is a coffee drink with the hot chocolate. Highly recommend this cafe.

I miss the old Julius Meinl. It used to be a special experience with great coffee and food, beautiful presentation, a cozy environment. But it feels like a poor commercialization has happened. And tonight they told us while we were still eating that they were going to close early- 2 hours early!!! And then they rushed us out. It was a bummer experience.

This is easily one of my favorite breakfast spots in Chicago, and well worth riding the CTA north from downtown. They have a delicious array of baked egg dishes which really hit the spot, and their French press coffee is a big cup of dark, rich, creamy happiness that you can practically eat with a fork. They don't take reservations, but I have never had to wait longer than 20 minutes or so. One word of warning: the baked egg dishes are hotter than the center of the sun when they arrive at your table, so cut into them and let them cool a bit or you will burn the you-know-what out of your tongue.

This a nice, affordable, neighborhood coffee shop. The food is always good, very simple. The drinks are great, served on metal trays and come with a little cookie. It's a nice spot to meet a friend, read a book, grab a bite or just some tea (or coffee).

Absolutely loved the whole experience. This charming Austrian cafe has an amazing array of delicious and healthy, yet tasty breakfast options. I ordered the Imperial Frühstück and was over the moon with everything about it. It was like being in Europe all over again. Will definitely be visiting more often now that I've happened upon this gem. Highly recommend!

What an awesome little cafe! On the outside it looks like a chain coffee shop-bakery, but once you step inside the vibe changes. The atmosphere is very casual and neat and this place is perfect for a relaxed breakfast, lunch, or snack (including a small group). The service is attentive and fast and friendly and the menu is great.They have amazing tea and coffee selections and a good selection for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts (pasteries). Everything seems to be made in-house and fresh. I got a darjeeling tea with the turkey and avacado sandwich, and both were great. They really hit the spot.Overall a fantastic find in the neighborhood. The only downfall, a little pricey for what you get. My sandwich was 9 dollars, a little steep in my opinion. Still a great choice for something casual.Atmosphere: 8/10Service: 9/10Food: 8/10

I've loved this chain since my first acquaintance with Julius Meinl coffee almost 30 years ago in its native Vienna and it still remains a solid good choice for a quick bite and some lesser known in the US delights. Maybe not always stellar, but never disappointing. Love it!
