This is a Hyde Park/UChicago staple that will please the college student in everyone. It serves all three meals, and has a menu reminiscent of The Cheesecake Factory’s in terms of length. There’s better food to be had elsewhere, but it’s perfect for large groups, with options ranging from pastries and egg scrambles to pizza, burgers, and quesadillas. In fact, this place serves pretty much everything except alcohol. It’s BYOB, so come prepared.
