Shopping in West Loop, Chicago

Top shops

“Under 1 mile away: "Oh, Stephanie Izard, how we love thee. And while, yes, to get the full Top Chef treatment you might want to give her more famous – and more expensive – Girl & the Goat a try, casual-offshoot Little Goat Diner is a definite go-to, in our eyes. Featuring a combo of classic diner fare and funky, chef-y options, Little Goat is the perfect mix of adventure and the familiar." --UrbanMatter”

Coffee Shop
“Best. Coffee. Ever. If you like lattes - don't miss the draft latte. You can ask for little or no ice to have it extra creamy and you can add agave to your heart's desire. The baked goods are from Floriole - ask for a heated ham and cheese croissant and try your best not to ask for seconds. ”

“Open early, and serving breakfast and lunch menus 7-days, there are certain things patrons of Lou's have come to expect: being greeted at the door with a hot donut hole, being expediently served by a professional and happy staff, complimentary Milk Duds on the table, an orange slice and a single prune as an "amuse," and an offer of free ice cream upon the completion of your meal. Expect quality ingredients, meticulous preparation, and large servings of the menu items. Be sure to include Lou Mitchell's on your "must" list...Especially for those who pine for a time when things were "better" in America, Lou Mitchell's will transport you there.”
