Is there anything better than sleeping in on vacation and heading out the door for some great brunch and coffee before you start exploring the city? Well, you're in the right place.
Chicago is synonymous with brunch and Yolk is a choice destination for some scrumptious pancakes, deliciously drippy eggs bennie, and delightful omelettes. With several locations in the city and surrounding suburbs, there's sure to be one near your hotel! In case you need a nudge, here are just a few reasons to make Yolk your go-to (plus there's a special offer at the bottom of this article!):
To help customers keep at a safe distance, Yolk has introduced a contactless waitlist option which you can access from that location's Yelp page. This means you can check wait times, add yourself to the list, and be notified when your table is ready all without leaving the comfort of your hotel room.
Need a caffeine boost? Yolk’s locations have a full barista menu that includes everything from lattes to macchiatos and everything in between. You can also place your order from the app or website to get started on your day right without waiting! Try their new #SummerOfFoam drinks: Dalgona Coffee, Cold Foam Cappuccino, & Dalgona Matcha! All three are made with cold foam — yum!
This new world requires new safety measures to keep customers and staff feeling safe. That’s why contactless menus are now the norm at Yolk locations. Pull up the menu on your phone or scan an easily accessible QR to pull up the menu.
Of course, you can still expect all the yummy menu options you’re used to including a Pancake of the Month and a new menu item monthly. Grab some breakfast and coffee to relax before your exciting day out in Chicago!
Just print or show this offer to your server the next time you're at any Chicagoland Yolk location.
Don't get left out.
This year marks 40 years of architecture cruises for Chicago Line Cruises! It's safe to say, they really know their stuff. From the first tour to many, many skyscrapers later, their award-winning Docents continue to share Chicago’s iconic Architecture with guests from around the globe.
If shopping new stores and old favorites sounds like your kind of vacation, then you absolutely need to add these stops to your Chicago Bucket List! Chicago is not only famous for its architecture, but for its shopping too.
There are some things that are a part of every Chicago Bucket List like visiting the lake, taking in the skyscraper views, and walking away with a tin of Garret mix.
