Start your day with a warm a la carte breakfast menu served in Café on Oak, the only beachy, breakfast nook overlooking Lake Michigan in the Gold Coast neighborhood.  A simplistic selection of high taste breakfast assortments to begin your day while enjoying a frothy cappuccino accompanied by a few of our favorites – the petit waffles, avo-toast or egg skillet - and of course, easing into your day with a crossword puzzle, catching up on the headlines, or taking in a bit of history counter-side, where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio carved their initials, shortly after their marriage over 50 years ago.  

After a hearty breakfast, stretch your legs with a leisurely stroll on Oak Street Beach splashing through the sandy shoreline while taking in the powerful backdrop of the city skyline (a not to miss photo opt).
