Café on Oak is the newest and only beachy, breakfast nook overlooking Lake Michigan in the Gold Coast neighborhood, serving the iconic MM +JD benedict. A culinary rendition of Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio’s favorite meals, thoughtfully crafted into a breakfast benedict duet sensation. The special is best enjoyed dining counter-side where their initial carvings have resided for nearly 50 years in this very space at The Drake, a Hilton Hotel.

Of all the parts of a balanced breakfast, none is as versatile and delicious as the egg. Plenty of tasty creamy, soft egg preparations are on the menu -from benedicts, skillets to eggs your way – you’ll be sure to start your day off eggstraordinary with breakfast at Café on Oak.

Delicate options from the griddle include fluffy buttermilk pancakes, buttery Belgian waffles and golden to perfection French toast with sweet and savory accoutrements. Breakfast buffet and the Continental Buffet also serve as options to savor a little taste of everything, or if you prefer a lighter start  fresh berries, yogurt parfaits and steel cut oats are on the menu to delight.
