If you want a great breakfast any day, Burnt Toast is the way to go. The only drawback is that it is go good the crowds get big at certain times, but well worth the wait.

It's almost a tradition to go here every weekend for breakfast. It's at a great location and the place looks great! Beats your average pancake house. The food is amazing and the service is great.

Poor customer service. Pricey for the quality of ingredients. Food is nothing special but there's few places to choose from in the area. Too pricey for the quality of ingredients. Manager doesn't know of customer service, has an attitude and is unfriendly as it can be. Won't be going back. Sweet berry Cafe on McLean in Elgin/South Elgin is 20... More

The food and service was excellent. Starting with the poached eggs, done correctly, not hard boiled; then the extra thick bacon was very good.

Fast service, good food, good coffee, huge quantities and fair prices. The atmosphere is nothing special, but its breakfast.

The food and service was good. The breakfast menu could be expanded a bit. The atmosphere was okay, but loud. The open floor plan really lets noise travel

For breakfast and lunch you should try this place on Randall Road just north of I(90). Great specials and service. Top quality ingredients assure great meals. Everything is just a little better than normal. Giardelli chocolate products are the best. French Toast, pancakes and omelettes. You have to try to believe. Family owned and operated.
