If you develop applications in Python, please consider a donation to this fantastic open-source project. If $200,000 is raised, we can finally see some JavaScript functionality in Eclipse which would be most welcome.

FANTASTIC PIZZA! My girlfriend and I went for pizza and beer on Friday night and this place was amazing. The tables were full, but it was definitely not crowded. The "Tavern Pizza" with sausage was absolutely amazing. The 5 Rabbit beer (native Chicago brewed) and warm bread right out of the oven completed the meal. I would highly recommend that you visit this restaurant.

Very good food. I had the Beef Stroganoff and my girlfriend had the Pad Thai. Both dishes were extremely hardy and very delicious. The prices are moderate to a little high, but the amount and quality of the food is second-to-none so I think in a lot of ways it makes up for it. The food also prepared fairly quickly so we did not have to wait long at all. Overall, I would highly recommend Noodles & Company, especially for lunch.

Great place for late-night take-out and they have fantastic beef and broccoli and pot stickers. Perhaps not the best place for a sit-down meal since it is quite small is my only complaint. The prices are terrific for being in the West Loop, also. I would highly recommend this establishment.

My girlfriend and I went here for lunch on a Saturday since she works around here. It is a very cozy establishment which is populated by a seemingly older crowd - perhaps only on the weekends. Therefore, it is not very loud and bustling. In any case, being a cafe, you can order anything from breakfast items to dinner items. I had the Reuben sandwich, which was excellent, if a bit on the small side. The prices are decent but you do not get a lot of food here (compared to even some places in downtown Chicago with similar prices). Overall, if you are looking for a quick breakfast or lunch I would highly recommend this place.

Overall the thin-crust pizza I tried (sausage and black olives) was fairly good. My only complaint would probably be the sauce which was a little sweet for my tastes, otherwise, it was a very good meal. Price was a little high at around $18.00 + around $2.00 per topping, but that's not terrible these days for a smaller pizza place. I would definitely recommend you give this place a try!

Very cozy and esthetically pleasing. It reminds me of an old train station. Drinks are very good, perhaps a little pricey, but it is Chicago. Staff was very courteous. Will have to try the food next time... Highly recommended!
