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 :-)

Like a short run to Germany put it on a biscuit for fun extra sause. And anywhere with a romantic fireplace. And it makes a dreamy reason to get up on a cold snowy morning and head out at six am !!!!!

Went there based upon Google review and the sub par food now makes sense after seeing more recent Yelp reviews. Apparently new ownership has turned quality for the worse. One dish was cold, had to be sent back, the fruit wasn't fresh and the eggs Benedict was below average. The service was good, but the food was so poor, I'm... More

Seated immediately around 8:40 am on a sunny Sunday morning and waited on hand and foot. The white chocolate raspberry Belgian Waffle was extraordinary but the Greek Omelet was dry and the hash browns lacked crispness. By the time we rolled out around 9:20 am, there was at least a 20 minuted wait to be seated.
