A group of 6 of us went here for Mother's Day brunch a day early on Saturday and I don't know if I would go back. It was VERY loud...we could not even talk to the people we were with, that is how loud it was...Not to mention that we were sitting right in front with everyone waiting staring at us. The service was slow and even the waiter was straining to hear us when taking our order. The food was ok...much better options in this city. I have to say that I was expecting WAY more after all the rave reviews. I like flavor and I feel like that just wasn't there. I think they may need to rethink their potatoes they serve with the breakfast dishes. My son had a chocolate cupcake that tasted like a box mix and was dry...Otherwise, we mostly had breakfast items, but my son did get a burger and I MAY go back and try some of the lunch options.
I went with a group of girlfriends on a Saturday for the first time. I was glad that we can make reservations because a lot of brunch places don't take reservations. The restaurant is located a bit off the beaten path for a restaurant but its great if you are wanting to do a little shopping afterwards. The food was great but I really liked the ambiance and how open the restaurant is. I didn't feel like we were sitting on top of our neighbors which is kind of a problem at some brunch places. I will definitely be back.
I am made at myself for staring at this place on my way to whole foods and not stopping in for a meal. It is great! The service is fantastic always white intelligent servers that actually seem to care about taking care for you. The white interior is uplifting, energetic and clean. The food is knotches above where it would need to be to make me come back again.
We enjoyed Kingsbury Street Cafe. The food is fantastic - we really enjoyed the brunch offerings. The spot is pretty noisy but the food is fine.
Interesting combination of American brunch food with a hint of Vietnamese cuisine, makes for a delightful brunch experience. Convenient location across the street from a gigantic Whole Foods unfortunately also means street parking is not easy to find. Service was slow and my understanding is that this is due to their having a small kitchen, but when the food arrived it was worth the wait. They accommodated our group of 10 without difficulty. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back.
great brunch for meat lovers and veggies alike. the bakery looks like their forte. the lemon pancakes were superb as was the blubbery muffin and chocolate chip merengue. great drink menu as well.
The food was nice but it was really loud in there, I was with my Aunt and we had to shout to be heard. The service left a lot to be desired.
The food here was creative and very good! We tried many things in our group including the more traditional breakfast, the oatmeal, the croque madame, and a salmon benedict special. I'm not sure about the other members in my group, but my food was tasty but cold. It must have been sitting out for too long before service.
Overall, it was just what I needed: a nice spot to conduct a lunch business meeting. It was an eleven dollar cab ride from (basically) the John Hancock building.
It's also across the street from a Whole Foods, which is nice.
Good but really really loud. Worth going but you will be yelling to be heard!
Really good food and friendly, attentive service.
Nice salad and sandwich selection for lunch.
Great local spot.
Was looking forward to trying this place which was featured on "Check Please" The hype was warranted as the food was really top notch. However the noise level was a real deterrent. There were four of us and we couldn't be heard across the table. For me, this will make me think twice about returning.
Great place for brunch! Lively atmosphere with lots of interesting menu choices. Will definitely return again when we return to Chicago.
The location is not the most convenient, but the food is awesome and the space is very lovely and open. You can make reservations, which is a plus if you're trying to find a good brunch spot for groups.
Brunch at the Kingsbury Street Cafe was delicious. The deviled eggs were prepared with the utmost care and the paprika/chorizo combination delicately elevates the flavor. It was nice that the agave was served on the side of the chia seed breakfast pudding so that we could choose the our desired sweetness. One bite of the cheddar scones, and we had to place a to-go order to have for later in the day. Request to sit outside on the patio if you prefer a more relaxing brunch experience - it is a little difficult to carry on a conversation inside of the restaurant.
Food was good, but even with the reservation, it took them 20 min to seat us, despite the fact that several tables were unoccupied. Service continued to be slow throughout our meal, so that made my first impression less positive. I'd try it again because the food was good to see if service improves at all.
There isn't a thing I don't like about Kingsbury St Cafe. The food is delicious, the cocktails for brunch are fantastic (and there are plenty), and it's especially great if you get to sit outside. All around its a perfect place for brunch.
The food was awesome! I had three deviled eggs with chorizo, a steak sandwich with eggs and salad, and lemon blueberry pancakes. I don't even like pancakes, but fell in love with them! They were so damn moist, fluffy, and.........u gotta try em! It tasted like I was eating lemon pound cake from my granny's kitchen! For real. My mojito was good too. Our server was great, though the kitchen was a little behind, the food was worth the wait!
One of our favorite breakfast/brunch spots in the city.
Great food and service.
3rd visit & though it was a Sat., the noise level was lower (better) than prior visits. I love the food & live close by so I'd go more often but can't deal with the noise (the space is beautiful but cavernous).
The food runs from well prepared, build your own omelettes to interesting spins on old standbys: love the deviled eggs w/crispy chorizo twists & a touch of cheddar. Some creations should not be on the menu at all: bbq chicken Benedict (IMHO) was amongst the most bizarre brunch creations I've tried- though I did love the salmon hash (I dined with a group of sharers so got to sample lots).
Our server was very good - attentive but not obnoxious or pushy - excellent coffee from Coffee& Tea Exchange meant we lingered long.
