Charming place for a great brunch!

Whenever some friends and I want to get together for a breakfast or brunch, Benedicts comes to mind. This place is so quaint, located in an old house next to the Fox River. There is a large tree which is actually growing right through one of the dining rooms!! It is truly a unique dining... read more

Always delicious with an extremely large selection of gourmet fare. Strattas, crepes, Benedicts, frittatas, pancakes, waffles and stuffed French toast. Seasonal specials too! Try it, you won't be disappointed.

My daughter and I ate here on a recent trip to the area. Awesome atmosphere, we were lucky enough to sit next to the indoor tree. She ate french toast and I enjoyed the key lime pancakes. Both meals were awesome and we couldn't finish all of it. The staff was friendly and helpful.

LOVE, LOVE this restaurant. Great atmosphere in an old victorian that was built around a tree. Wonderfully warm homey decorations inside. I have had breakfast, brunch, lunch many times and I have NEVER been disappointed. They have a very large menu with atypical and standard breakfast offerings as well as lunch items. They also offer a variety of seasonal selections.... More

I had a bratwurst omelette that excellent and my wife had an apple, cinnamon strata. We've been there before and she always has a "doggy bag" when we leave after she has the strata. Over all a good experience.

I always love getting the cucumber, avocado and Gruyere sandwich. Go back regularly just to get it. Now it is available as a wrap which makes it even better! My sister decided to try it on my recommendation and loved it also. Everyone was happy with their choice.

My excellent breakfast here back in 2013 was repeated again in 2015. I wish this restaurant was located in my hometown. I have had great breakfasts in several great restaurants throughout the country; however, my vote goes to Benedicts Eggs & More as my favorite place for breakfast. I like the atmosphere of the old house, the room layout, the... More

charming house that we found when we lived near. Whenever we are in the area we try to stop for breakfast. We made specific plans on our visit to Chicago last Dec. we went early on a Sunday as it would get so crowded and little room to wait. It was good and we were seated in our favorite room... More

I very much enjoyed having breakfast here. From the historical house setting, the great service, the varied and elegant menu, the mimosa :) and the amazing meal I had. I ordered the zucchini cakes with poached eggs and hollandaise. SO GOOD! Very creamy hollandaise, perfectly poached eggs and the zucchini cakes (like potato pancakes but zucchini) were great! I will... More
