Very hip spot for breakfast attached to Virgin Hotel
Absolutely loved the vibe and decor! Funky, colorful and comfy! Excellent service! Food was delicious... I had avo toast w egg and my husband had protein bowl w steak. Only complaint is that the espresso machine was not available.
We sat inside and they have tv monitors w retro movies playing.
Outside tables were available as well including a table w swings for seats! Will definitely return!

I have been to Miss Ricky's several times but my last visit left a lot to be desired. Our server was extremely inattentive and we had to ask multiple times for coffee refills and more water. Additionally, we seemed to have a different person help us on the few occasions someone came by the table. We also had to ask for the check twice.

I will come back to Miss Ricky's because I haven't had a problem before this, but it was disappointing to bring someone who'd never been before and have this be the experience.

It took more than 40 minutes for our breakfast to come out and half of it was cold. It wasn’t crowded and there was no need for such a rush. It was very expensive for poir quality and service.

The wait for the food was unusually long. Our order came out and two of the three meals were missing key ingredients ex; waffles with fresh berries came without the berries and crab cake Benedict without the crab cakes. Our waitress was nowhere to be found so we didn’t even have a chance to ask for the missing items. She finally came to check on us but by that time we were finished. We told her about the mistakes and she comp’d the waffle and didn’t charge for the crab cakes (they were an additional charge) but we still would have liked our meals how we ordered them! Wouldn’t go back.

Surprisingly below average for the cool hotel it's connected to; seriously poor quality espresso, eggs in the Benedict bowl overdone with hard yolks, shredded English muffin pieces hard. Fun, funky vibe, nice staff.

I had no idea what a cute little place this would be. The lounge upstairs was full of old-school games like Rock em sock em robots and don't break the ice. I loved that they take reservations, which is so rare for brunch places in the loop. Delicious donut holes come to your table when you sit down.

Service was very slow and our waiter was less than enthusiastic and not very attentive. I would say the restaurant was moderately busy, but not slammed, and we waited about 45 minutes for our meals. Once it came, the food was good quality and portion sizes were generous. Glad we allowed plenty of time to eat before our Sunday matinee show.

The service was poor. Waiter not engaged. Had to ask for napkin and cutlery after food delivered. Husband's medium rare steak was charred on the outside and cold in the middle. Sent it back. I was asked by 2 staff members if they could take my plate away when I was pretty obviously still eating. Yay for impossible burger and yay for Halal guys for the make-up meal

Great service. We had the cheese curds which were solid. The fried chicken sandwich was small and uneventful. Same with the bloodys - uneventful. A decent restaurant, but way overhyped considering the value.

Great ambiance! Fantastic location. We will be back! ( especially when rooftop opens)

If you get the chance then head upstairs to the bar Common Club? Great atmosphere too!

Nice and upbeat atmosphere with awesome service. I ordered the chicken and waffles with a side of fried egg. The gee and waffle was fantastic! The chick had an odd batter and crustiness that wasn't my style, but when I peeled it off and requested some ranch dressing to dip it in, it all went down fine. :-)

Service was abysmal and food was not worth the money at all. For the same price you could get a delicious brunch + drinks. A side of fruit is $9. The decor is nice, but doesn't fit the price range. We only saw our waiter twice and he was not attentive at all. Tip was automatically included for our party of 6, which was stated nowhere on the menu. If it were up to us, we would not have tipped at all. I decided to ignore the bad reviews I heard from friends and trust the good reviews here on Open Table, and I really regret it! I never write bad reviews, but this was one of the most disappointing restaurants I've been too yet.

The Monte Cristo deep dish breakfast item was a bit too cooked around the edges, but it had excellent presentation and the interior was delicious.

The salsa and tortilla chip breakfast item (can't remember the name) was good, but felt a bit over priced and lacked uniqueness.

Staff was excellent, service was great. Pricey, but expected for the area.
