Good place for breakfast, too bad not open for dinner

Good breakfast location for meeting friends. They feature breakfast and lunch only. If you like lots of choices for breakfast this is the place to visit. Nice atmosphere and staff including hosts, check-out and waitress/waiters.

This place is near my home and I am so glad that it opened. I can't say a bad thing about it. The building is clean and new, the room is bright and airy, the wait staff is friendly, happy and the service is prompt and they are packed all day everyday. Menu is extensive and everything is cooked to... More

This is my family's favorite breakfast restaurant in the northwest suburbs. Great staff, service and even better food. Highly recommend the Eggs Benedict, and the side of cheese grits reminds me of childhood. Also recommend the veggie skillet. Best on week days, as weekends can be pretty packed. Choose the outdoor seating in the summer for a great view of... More

I've never been here when it wasn't jammed and we had to wait up to 30 minutes. The food was very good, but not so spectacular that it's worth the wait. And these visits were not at prime time. More like 10 a.m. on a Wednesday. We don't plan to return.

When I come to visit family, I always want to go to this place. I fell in love with it the first time. You get Plenty of food to share. Prices are reasonable. Staff is always great and courteous. Favorite is the skillets. But definitely get the strawberry orange juice. AWESOME!!

I have eaten here several times and will continue to do so because the food and the service is great. I've taken several people and all agree that it's one of the best breakfast/lunch places they've been to, and the food is great. I love their breakfast food, which is saying something because I'm a bit of a breakfast connoisseur.

Went here for lunch, a big crowd, but this place is big so plenty of tables. Was pretty unorganized at the entrance, but I soon got seated, then waited longer than usual for someone to wait on the table. But once they arrived, they were very friendly. My BLT wrap tasted great!

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.
