I meet my business partner once a month for breakfast at this restaurant. Any of the breakfasts from pancakes to eggs to waffles are extremely well prepared. The omelettes are huge and skillets excellent. For a sweet treat try the Bananas Foster crepes. Outstanding. The service is always great. If come later in the morning, expect a wait.

We had a great breakfast at this restaurant, our waitress was so sweet and we had excellent service. Everyone in our party ordered a different egg dish and they were all very good. But we started with monkey bread and it was just terrific! If you go here be sure to have some, you won't be disappointed.

A fantastic staff, great breakfast and all the coffee you can ever have. To top it off you can always have a "sweet treat for the road." The location is very central in the West Suburbs of Chicago and being a member of the Portillo Beef Restaurants, you know the quality, cleanliness and service is outstanding.

This place is my favorite breakfast spot. Everything on the menu is really good. Sometimes the wait times can be long especially on Saturday but it is not a problem during the weekday.

I go there at least once a month for our retirement breakfast. Try out their Banana Bread French Toast - something different :-) It closes at 3 pm...wish they were open longer for dinner. Lots of choices on the menu :-) Worth going there :-)
