Great food, great service, a neighborhood gem!

There was some confusion in the beginning. We were passed up in our seating and the waitress kept passing our table but when the food came it was amazing. I'd highly recommend this place as the food was top notch ... read more

Perfect for breakfast or brunch Excellent service. I always feel comfortable here. The entrance is not wheelchair accessible. There is a small step in order to enter the front door.

AMAZING chilaquilas. No joke I have never had any as good and their oatmeal shakes are fantastic. The customer service is outstanding and food comes out quick. They also have a lot of vegan or non dairy options as well. Would recommend all the time for some good breakfast .

The hype is real. You need to go if you love brunch. My partner and I biked to uptown to have brunch here. We walked up and there is a corridor that leads to an open patio. We sat down and within 3 minutes get menus, coffee, and water. I ordered the chilaquiles that came with roasted red potatoes and scrambled eggs. I had a lemonade ... read more

This is a hidden gem. Outdoor patio, nice small indoor dinning area. Not strictly Mexican cusien. They serve alcohol. Food was very good, large portions. Fun wait person. Oddly open 7 days from 8am till 3 (odd that they don't serve dinner). Has been open for 12 years.

First time we’ve ordered from here. Walked-in for a takeout order and they were amazing. Wife and I got the chilaquiles with eggs and chorizo. Takeout container was STUFFED with some of the best I’ve had here in Chicago... and they gave us each a cup of warm salsa to go on top.

A long overdue review - Tiztal is FANTASTIC and I highly recommend it. Their excellent, kind service and great dishes contribue to the cozy and comfortable atmosphere whether you are seated  indoor or outdoor. Highly recommend leaving room for their oatmeal shakes or take some to go. If you have a newborn/babies they provide wonderfu ... read more

Safety:  The back patio is outdoors and socially distanced.  Individual packages of salt, pepper, and even sour cream minimize contact.  Water comes in pitchers so contact isn't required for refills.  The menu is a QR code.  Probably the most thoughtful safety plan I've encountered!

Service: Servers were warm and welcoming fro

So delicious! A hidden gem of the northside. This restaurant had a outdoor patio that was on the smaller side but private. The menu had great options and the food was fire. The orange juice was freshly squeezed as well! Not to mention it's BYOB with no charge for that.

After we got married nine years ago, we had breakfast at Tiztal.  Every anniversary since, we have gone back to enjoy the wonderful chilaquiles, perfect waffles, and life changing oatmeal shake.  This year, we had to have our anniversary meal delivered, but it did not disappoint.  Delivery was quick, the meal was packed well, and aft ... read more

The was friendly and courteous. Great care was taken for social distancing and use of single portions of salt, pepper, ketchup, cream and sugar.. The food delicious. Portion size was more than plenty. The ambiance of the patio was quaint. Beautiful greenery and flowers decorate the patio.
Maggie B. via yelp.com - Aug 8, 2020
We come here for breakfast at least every other month. It goes without saying that their famous oatmeal shakes are outstanding. They are thick and rich (unlike the thinner version at Irazu, which is also good, but a different animal altogether). We usually get the granola shake. The menu is good and varied, with lots of American, Mex ... read more
Ann via google.com - Aug 6, 2020
Best chilaquiles I ever had. I like to order them with the eggs and chorizo. Also their fruit shakes are good. If driving it is easy to miss the first time you go. They need a better sign that stands out.
Edwin C via google.com - Aug 6, 2020
We first discovered Tiztal when we lived in the area. We’ve since moved to Lincoln park and have missed being so close by. We go out of our way to come here specifically for the steak chiliquilles. Others restaurants just don’t compare! They also have delicious fresh juices and smoothies. I love that they always come out right away w ... read more

The Steak Chillaquiles are the breakfast you will never regret ordering. They understand flavor at this location in a way that many other neighboring restaurants fail to do so. They have a great staff and an amazing patio in back if you want to grab a quick bite in the area. Also, pro tip order an oatmeal shake for the road. You'll b ... read more

The food is delicious the smoothies are definitely worth trying and are very nutrious. The service is very good and the atmosphere is cozy.

Been there many times for lunch. The outside patio is on the small side but quaintly decorated and intimate. Still, accommodations have been made for social distancing. The food isn't gourmet if that's what you're looking for. However, it is consistently good with generous portions. Staff are friendly and attentive but not intrusive.

Been here so many times for their shakes, what can I do, these shakes are healthy and nutritious and oh so good!! They draw me close whenever I'm in the vicinity.

I'm stuck on my favorite which is the blueberry, banana with either oatmeal or granola. The shakes are so thick - I usually skip breakfast before coming here.

A very pleasant brunch today. Good food, good service, Good prices,and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Tiztal Is easy to miss from the street, and in a neighborhood where there's not much else.

One of the most flavorful breakfast places I have ever been to. I've gotten the ranchero omlette and the tiztal chorizo scramble and both are great.

Smoothies here are also super tasty and refreshing and all the jui ... read more

This place has the best chilaquiles in the city, and I have tried them everywhere... Their fruit smoothies are also fantastic. The times I've been here on weekends they're very busy. Hope this place stays a hidden gem, but I don't think that's possible. Highly recommend.

Tiztal Cafe does NOT disappoint. My girlfriend and I frequent this restaurant when we want a delicious breakfast treat. I get the Tiztal chorizo scramble (2 egg version, still so much food) and she gets the chilaquiles every single time.

Good, attentive service. The chilaquiles with chicken were delicious, the chilaquiles are a mix of crunchy and soggy kind. I do wish the salsa used on the chilaquiles was a bit spicy, it's really mild. They give kids a small bowl of fruit before their meal arrives, which my 2 year old and ate immediately. The lemonade is very good, i ... read more
