We stopped in today for a change of venue. Cute interior. Service was good. Food is "meh". And pricey! Three breakfasts with coffee, 1 fruit cup - $52 with a tip. Ouch! 'nuf said. We'll stick with Dappers or Sunmist.

Our Kitchen In Elmhurst is one of the great throwbacks to the old pancake houses. It has true old fashioned pancakes, such as German pancakes, Swedish pancakes, flapjacks, etc. They are all terrific, and true to form. Most restaurants now serve what they call swedish pancakes, but they are really just regular pancakes made a little thinner. This is the... More

Today we had breakfast at Our Kitchen. I always love coming here because they have a wonderful breakfast. Today I had the German Apple pancake.....which is huge and could feed a family. Really it is the size of a medium pizza. The pancake is stuffed with thin sliced apples wonderful sugar topping. My husband likes their flapjacks which are sorta... More

I have celiac and was disappointed that they had no gluten free pancakes on their menu. I was then frustrated that they would not substitute fruit or cottage cheese instead of the pancakes/toast. I was offered sliced tomato which I do not care for. The owner of the restaurant came to the table and just smiled and said you can... More

We went to Our Kitchen on Sunday and the food was very poor, prepared incorrectly, (my daughter's omelette was filled with onions that she did not ask for) so we sent it back. My omelette, bacon and Swiss has a pocket of greasy bacon and cheese could not be found. Our $14.00 apple pancake was under cooked and missing half... More

We love the apple pancake and divide it with an order of bacon. If we don't split it we need to take half home. The spinach bacon omelette is the best I have ever eaten and I compare all others to this one. I order it with the english muffin and their delicious jam. The prices are a little high... More

I only ate here once but was happy with the food and the service. I had lunch which included home made soup which was great. While I was eating they delivered a German pancake for the couple at the table next to me to share (it was huge) and it looked delicious. As I looked around several other diners also... More

Maybe it was Egg Harbor opening that did it, but Our Kitchen has sadly lost all of it's once strong gusto. In fact, Our Kitchen used to be the life of the breakfast party. It was my birthday breakfast every year until 3 years ago. Since then however, it's become completely abandoned and for obvious reasons. Having recently revisited my... More

I enjoyed the greatest Apple Pancake in the world at Our Kitchen in Elmhurst yesterday morning! The apples we slightly tart and the cinnamon sugar glaze topping the pancake was delicious. I can't believe there were no other reviews for this restaurant. It has been an icon in Elmhurst for more than 25 years. Besides the fantastic food, the diningrooms... More
