Julius Meinl is heaven. Their endless cup of coffee (w/ biscuit & cream) is one of the best things they have to offer. The food here is superb. From their Austrian sandwiches and baked eggs, to their ever changing selection of baked goodies, you must try them all.

Euro charm abounds here. Try the yummy Swedish pancakes at brunch or the unbeatable chicken salad sandwich for lunch.

I already knew Julius Meinl as an under-the-radar brunch spot where baked banana French toast and spinach, mushroom and feta baked eggs beckoned on the menu. But I recently ventured in on a weekend night and loved the chill vibe, live music trio, creamy hot chocolate, and the Key lime mousse "bomb" with a graham cracker base. You pretty much can't go wrong at this quaint Austrian gem.

Great for strong Americanos, warm, fresh pastries and silky coddled eggs. A classic Austrian coffeehouse with a comfortable, friendly vibe

The best coffee in the area is in here. I have to say that you guys are doing a mighty fine job on making the best coffee there is.

Get the Baked Eggs! They take a little longer but totally worth it.

Sweet Treat for a Saturday Morning – My husband woke up craving a Chicago-style hot dog, but our daughter Emily had something entirely different in mind. We were visiting her new hometown, and a pastry from Julius Meinl's authentic Austrian cafe would be the next best thing to breakfast in bed. Who could argue with Viennese coffee delivered to your table on a small silver tray, French toast smothered in baked bananas, luscious pumpkin pancakes, or baked eggs with pancetta, spinach and feta cheese?

It's easy to see why Julius Meinl has become a favorite gathering place for neighbors on Chicago's north side, a place where you can linger over coffee and quiet conversation and forget about all the errands you have to run on a busy Saturday morning.

Good food - lousy service – We frequent this spot at least once a weekend. We love the baked eggs, almond croissants and lattes. However, every time we are there the service is incredibly slow. Once or twice is understandable, but without fail it takes too long to order, get the coffee or food to the table and you can add ten more minutes waiting for the bill.

High Tea is awesome! – Julius Meinl is one of my favorite cafes in Chicago. I lived in Vienna for a while and this place lives up to its European counterparts. I especially love the high tea here which is not as pricey as the Drake Hotel but the food is definitely better. I have never had any trouble with the service at Julius Meinl, they have always been nice and friendly.

"I'm afraid you're not in Starbucks anymore, Toto" =) – One phrase says it all, Mmmmmm!!! I haven't been there recently (being since Winter 06), but I think it's time I stop in and have some dessert and one of their specialty mochas (yum) =p. Actually, I found out about this place from my "ex" who just happened to have some good taste (except for dumping me for an uglier guy of course, but that's another story). Believe me, once you step in and order something, you'll never want to head back to any Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks ever again. What's surprising to me is that they've never been featured on Food Network or any food shows. What's wrong Rachael Ray, can't make it out to Lakeview? Wether it's a cold winter's day (or any type of day for that matter), or coming from the Musicbox Theater after a show, this place will surely warm you up with their tea or espresso drinks and put the "sweet" back in your sweetooth.

Cupcakes - Yum! – I'm not sure if they are made in-house or not, but they have the amazing chocolate cupcakes with frosting. What a treat!

Great customer service. Great first date spot. – very nice place. good coffee. good prices. Great customer service.

Environment is great. It's spacious, a variety of couches, lounge chairs, and working tables.

Parking is not a problem.

very disorganized service – Good coffee and many choices of tea (little bit pricy)....but nothing is very special. Servers really sock. Very slow, rude, and unprofessional. Sweets were not great either. Some of them were dried out.

They try to make the shop fancy, but not good at all. Not recommended.
