I love to have breakfast here and order the large Grilled Pita. The vegetarian egg white omelet with feta and spinach is delicious.

My wife and I were looking for a place Sunday morning near our hotel on Lake Cook Rd...I googled and we selected the Eggshell Cafe. As we walked in, I knew this must be a good place as the restaurant was packed. The service was quick, polite and attentive. I didn't want the hash browns that came with my order,... More

A group of 7 of us at at Eggshell Cafe for brunch over the weekend. I ordered a cheese omelette, hash browns and toast for about 8 bucks and change. MY meal was HUGE, and for the price, it was PLENTY of food! The omelette was decent enough (extremely fluffy, which i like), but the hash browns were a tad... More

Went to Eggshell for brunch. They sat us next to a table of screaming children who were running around the table. After one of the children sneezed into my food, I finally said something to the manager. His response was, "What do you want me to do?" and proceeded to literally do nothing. We were appalled. Don't know which was... More

This is a solid, reliable diner with basic diner food. I have gone there many times and will be back for sure. It's close to UL. It's very popular. Service is quick. I have never been disappointed. Lots of famous people have eaten there and their picture, usually together with Joe Anginas, the owner who greets and seats you, are... More

We needed to be in and out reasonably quickly, and we had a a variety of tastes to satisfy. None of us are fussy, but nonetheless we had it all our way. I wouldn't hesitate to go there again. The service was excellent and efficient.

We recently visited Eggshell for lunch. All of their menu items, including specials, come with soup. The two soup items of the day were chicken and rice and spicy vegetable, made with a beef broth. My friend is a vegetarian so she asked if we could substitute anything in place of the soup. The waitress apologized and said that she... More

Very good breakfast here recently, but went away feeling that something was missing. Food was good, but not necessarily something you would drive out of your way to get to.

Ate here last week...was good, but nothing really stood out, in our opinion. 4 out of 5 stars, but we ate at Wildberry Pancakes next day and was a better choice.
