This was always our go to place in Englewood and showed up for dinner twice the last couple of months. Just recently found out that there were new owners, and it explains a bit. It's very difficult to take over and try to offer the same menu from someone else who had perfected it for so many years. We ordered... More

We have eaten breakfast here regularly over the last few years, every time we visit from the UK. We loved Gary's cooking and the portions were huge. The lovely Deedee, Vicki and Melissa always made us welcome and provided superb service. The place was usually packed. New owners arrived during our stay in January this year. Today in March we...

Food is Love was one of my favorite restaurants. Went there this morning and found new owners had taken over. Ordered my favorite breakfast. It had gone from being wonderful to being below average. The portion size had also decreased which wasn't a problem because I left half of my meal uneaten. To be fair my wife said her meal... More

We just decided to try this place for breakfast one day because we were going to the supermarket a few doors down. We were so impressed with the food and the menu, we decided to go there for lunch the following week. Awesome! Great sandwiches, salads, and soups. Nothing fancy but great food. It's definitely worth trying.

Upon recommendation of neighbors, we and our friends went here for breakfast today. Unknowingly, an unmitigated disaster awaited us. After being seated, we waited 20 minutes before anyone came to even offer a cup of coffee. We waited another 10 minutes before the coffee came, and we noticed 3 other tables where people just got up and left without ordering.... More

We waited a long time to get waited on and then when out order was delivered it was not cooked the way we ordered. It took 30 min for it to be brought back and it was still not right. the waitress...

The restaurant has recently changed hands - they won't be there long. We went for breakfast - eggs were watery, hash brown were dripping in grease, bacon was limp. And on top of that, the waitress submitted an order of two women who came in after us, resulting in them getting their order before us. Used to be the best... More

this small family restaurant is friendly, clean, and good value; the burgers are infinitely better than in the big chain restaurants; the quiche is clean-tasting and nicely made; drinks are refilled instantly; the owner is a nice guy, who genuinely cares about his customers; the waiting staff work hard, but still have time to be pleasant and charming this is...

We have eaten here twice and enjoyed both meals very much. The quality, taste, and menu variety were all very good. They even brought us samples of the soup de jour to try. Very nice folks and great service. We intend to return.
