Lizzy J Cafe and Catering
I went to Lizzy J Cafe for the first time yesterday and the food was really good. I will definitely come back to try other items in the menu. I would definitely recommend making a reservation if possible b/c it’s quite small and there’s not a lot of seating. There were a few people waiting outside when we went. There is free street parking which is a plus for the area. I had no issue finding parking on a Saturday afternoon. All in all I recommend Lizzy J and glad I found this place!
The food was amazing
That food was good. It's a cute little small place.
Food and service was really good, but we felt rushed out at the end. We may have missed a notice for time limit.
Great spot for an intimate meal
The food was amazing. Comfort food at its finest.
Lizzy J is an amazing little hidden gem. The food was amazing. The service was so friendly, and the food came out incredibly quick. Plus, it's BYOB! Can't wait to go back!
Brunch with the family. Food was excellent, place is very small
I’m in love with this place! The food and service were awesome. I will say get an earlier reservation because they may run outta chicken wings 😩
This is my second visit. Love the food. Will definitely be a regular visitor and hopefully they will eventually expand to a much larger space in the west loop hopefully .
Great food and awesome service! Chef Lizzy herself greeted us and made sure we had the best experience! My husband and I can’t wait to go again and try more delicious dishes!
This was my first time and I absolutely love it!! The server recommended the Hash and it was sooooo good!!! I will definitely be back!!
Great customer service, and food! The teas were good too.
Ive given the stars i did strictly on me and my Husband walking through the door. The young man who greeted and seated us was really nice. The place was very cute and cozy. It smelled EXTREMELY delicious when we walked in. I was very underwhelmed at how they give water out. We did not actually eat as the selections we wanted was not available. I would like to give them the benefit of doubt and plan to go again but this time we will go earlier and see of they have more food.
Everything was nice I love the strawberry/lemonade drink OMG
The salmon was not seasoned at all. The coffee was great
The entire experience was A-1! They have Covid precautions in place, contactless ordering and paying. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful in choosing the best option for my taste buds. The ambience was cozy and quaint; very comfortable with great music. The food was the best part! Their sauce...simply amazing (finger-licking good)! I will be back!
Lizzy J Cafe was amazing! It was such an amazing experience and the food was great! Definitely have to go back when I’m in Chicago. The service was outstanding and the waiters and owner were exceptional!
Great service and the food was Delicious!. I was skeptical about the sweet potato waffle but ohhh my goodness, it was wonderful and paired well the chicken. My husband had the lamb chops and they were tender and juicy! However those hashbrowns were cooked made them mouthwatering. Im glad we had a great experience!
They were sold out of everything. They had three items and did not seem worth the price. It was a Wednesday at lunch.
This was my first time dining at Liszt J Cafe; heard of this cafe from a coworker; I had been in search of a location for a Father’s Day brunch; googled the location and seen that reservations could be made; arrived at the cafe and was greeted by Liszt warm and welcoming; the set up was different from and average resturant; there were no waiters/waitresses which was completely fine; everything was ordered thru the scan code and Liszt brought the food out to the table. Was slightly disappointed that a few items on menu were sold out specifically the lamb chops so my date and I ordered shrimp and grits which was very good hot and fresh a lil spicy from the creole seasoning and there were only two shrimp not sure if this is how shrimp and grits are prepared but overall I was really satisfied. My date ordered chicken and waffles which was delicious. The chicken wings were huge reminded me of fried turkey wings. The glazed used for the waffles reminded me of peach cobbler. Overall my experience was great and I will visit again and send more business to this establishment
It was a good experience. I recommend picking out a few things on the menu in advance so if they're out of it when you get there, you won't be as disappointed. We went early in the day, they were still out of things. However, everything we ordered did taste good. Note the menu/ordering is all electronic via QR code and using one person's ph.
Shrimp and grits excellent, chicken and waffle excellent,Blueberry French toast excellent. Delicious and beautifully presented food. Coffee delicious 👍

Loved the service, food was 😋, owner is ao welcoming. Check it out!
Food is excellent! Just gets pretty busy so make sure to reserve before going.
We loved our experience from the beginning to the end. Catfish, grits, crab cakes, sweet potato waffle, chicken, staff omg lovely experience. Definitely will be back. ❣️
I was very impressed by the food. I ordered their special of a meat skillet with eggs, hash browns and siracha sauce which was delicious and my husband loved his catfish over grits. Although the waiter was nice, we couldn’t order the special while using their app bc it wasn’t on there, which was fine, but then he didn’t put my order (especially when there was only one other table).
My husband got his food first and was done before I got mine so we didn’t eat together and I was starving. On top of that, all we got was an apology. I’ve worked in hospitality many years so to me that showed inexperience. Despite this, I would return because the food was excellent and I support local businesses.
One of my favorite breakfast spots! Service is always outstanding! Food is always hot, fresh, and delicious.
Amazing food and service! Will definitely be back!
The food and service were both incredible!! I already cannot wait to go back!
The food and service is always impeccable. It's a great place to take people because you know they won't be disappointed.
The food and service was excellent the hostess he is the best. I know him from Luella's he's the bomb they should make him a manager.
Can’t say enough about this place! Try the shrimp and grits— the roux mixed in with the bed of grits is amazing! Staff is exceptional!
Was overstuffed after that 4 course Mother’s Day brunch, everything was amazing.
Everything was amazing! Staff was professional and personable! I had a half order of The Frenchy with peaches and cream and the catfish and grits. While I recommend these dishes, I’m sure everything else is just as delicious! I enjoyed my experience and would definitely go back!
Went here on a brunch date. Food was good but they were sold out of what I wanted (can’t remember now what it was). Place is small and cozy and they play R&B music which is nice. Also like that they’re BYOB as bottomless mimosas can get expensive. They do charge a cork fee of I think $7?
Overall I would come back for the atmosphere and ability to bring my own alcohol in.
Excellent Food, Excellent Service at a Great Value!!!
Delicious! And awesome friendly staff!
