The Lobby: Chicago High Tea & Afternoon Tea - Served Daily

Peninsula Chicago Shanghai Terrace Exterior

Dining

Select from a memorable Contemporary American menu featuring outstanding dishes in an environment that blends the classic understated elegance of The Lobby's décor. 

Take a table by the soaring 20 ft high floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Terrace. Breakfast is a favorite with both early-rising Chicago residents and hotel guests alike, who swear by starting the day with one of the many breakfast options, while The Lobby's approachable, yet American contemporary inspired à la carte is ideal for power lunches and sophisticated dinners. 

The Lobby is also where the celebrated Peninsula Afternoon Tea is served. Featuring samplings of seasonal flavors, the sweet and savory bites accompanying The Peninsula's selection of teas are not to be missed.

Come Sundays, a spectacular brunch is served from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Hailed among the best in Chicago, The Lobby certainly steps up to plate with all the sweet and savory requisites.

Children's menus are available with a variety of offerings.

Please note The Peninsula Chocolate Bar buffet experience will be closed for the month of January 2019 however we will offer a prix fixe menu of four courses of desserts for guests to enjoy.  This prix fixe menu is US$ 30 per person or US$ 20 per person for guests dining in our restaurants.
