Long Description:
Founded in 1923. Lou Mitchell's is known for handing out fresh donut holes to people waiting in line, giving boxes of Milk Duds to children, and offering a free scoop of ice cream with each meal. Their egg dishes are made using double yolk eggs, which they claim makes the eggs larger and fluffier. Best coffee in Chicago too!

In May, 2002, the Nationwide Route 66 restoration program was launched at Lou Mitchell's.
