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.

Food has always been good here. There is a charge for sharing (silly) and they may ask if you want cheese on that (costs extra). If you can get around the upselling, it's a good place with decent size portions. It's on the pricier side, but good food.

I go to Burnt Toast quite often. The breakfast is fabulous. I am working my way through the omelets and I love the pancakes. The hot chocolate is to die for! I always take one of their large and tasty salads home for dinner. The service here is as wonderful as the food. It's busy especially on the weekends but... More

Excellent service, food is a step above the ordinary, plenty of options. And the hot chocolate is wonderful. It's always busy on the weekends but they move people through without making you feel rushed. Highly recommend any of the multiple combinations of omelettes.
