Red Apple has wonderful choices for breakfast. Portions are HUGE! There is plenty of food to share! Be prepared for a long wait on weekends. But while you are waiting, ask if you can put in your order for the Apple Pancake. It takes 30 minutes, so your wait will be just long enough to have your plate of deliciousness... More

Why I haven't mentioned this place before is beyond my comprehension but let me say my husband and I have frequented this restaurant for years and it just gets better and better. Saturday mornings at Red Apple has been one of our favorite dates for quite some time. Plan to come to have your hunger satisfied in a big way,... More

We LOVE this place. They have the best breakfast and lunch selections & service around. If you order two eggs, you receive four (at least all the times we've been there). Service is wonderful and owners are almost always on site.

The food has always been great here. It does get crowded on holiday's or special occasions. Place is not that big but we have eaten here about 9 times and every time the food was great.

Beware - they serve a lot of good quality food at very good prices. Hard to decide which dish to choose. Alpine was excellent. When they say two eggs, that actually means 4 eggs which our server explained. Next time will try the signature dish when we have more time. It takes 30 minutes so come prepared.

We stop here frequently when we are in the Wheaton area and it has always been predictably very good!

We took my mom here for a birthday brunch. The food was delicious and there was a lot of it! Most of us split meals and there was plenty! The food was above average - we enjoyed the omelettes and the scrambles. The pancakes were hot and fluffy and the toppings were tasty. Overall a very good experience. One tip:... More

This has been a favorite restaurant of mine for at least a decade. The portions are generous, the food is delicious and the wait staff is always friendly and consistently caring about making sure your order is delicious and getting anything you need/want. Whether I go with children or without, I enjoy my time here. The interior design is filled... More
