Description: local favorite, reviewed on yelp and others. If you google you will find several listings. Would love to review this as we eat here every time we visit Elmhurst, which is 1-2 times a year for 16 years. ALL the locals know Rainbow very well. Always busy.

We have been having breakfast at the rainbow for over 26 years. Great service, lots of hot coffee ready for you the instant you sit down. Omlettes and French toast are my favorite, but the apple pancake is to die for when you are in the mood to splurge and forget the diet. The Belgium waffles are also great, and... More

The Rainbow has been in town for many years and it's a good breakfast choice. While we hadn't been here for a long time we weren't surprised to see it's still as busy as ever. From a cost standpoint, this is one of the more reasonable options in town. I ordered the Denver omelet and I really enjoyed it. What... More

My mother loves this place. It is just comfort food, reliable flavors, but the soup and the vanilla muffins are my favorites. Beautiful cake display.

It looks like the area specializes in breakfast. But this place will be a two-in-a-row...unheard of. Quality,quantity and variety. Lots of Latin influence (probably a dozen breakfast menu items). Nice selection of omelettes and bennies plus waffles, pancakes (etc) -- including German and dutch pancakes. Yum. just yum.

Their menu is HUGE! You'll spend an hour deciding what you feel like eating! The food was all amazing. Country skillet had some awesome sausage and the Biscuits and gravy wasn't too bad. Had an unexpected taste to them though. The pancakes were sweet and delicious. The chorizo skillet was spicy and very good. Bacon was cooked nice and crispy... More

This restaurant pretty much has it all! Breakfast anytime - specials, quick food delivery once you finally decide what to get, large portions, great for carry out too! Always packed yet the wait is never more than 10 minutes. Food is fresh and tasty and can bring you back to the feeling of a family diner. Many regular customers. Don't... More

Rainbow is another local favorite, with very friendly owners and staff on hand to serve a very wide variety of American food in a very efficient manner. A full dinner is served at very attractive prices, plenty of food and the cooking is tasty. A very reliable restaurant and good for families.
