I have been to Brunch Cafe several times and it is consistently good and always has new menu entries. The service is top notch and food fresh and tasty. It is a place to try at least one time just to treat yourself. The food could be served hotter is my only complaint. The decor is nice and the tables... More

Went for breakfast on a Saturday morning with family. Called ahead and waited for Less than 10 minutes. We had chicken fried steak, berry berry crepes and California crepes. Chicken fried steak seemed a little chewy. The gravy needed more seasoning. But order came as ordered, crispy potato and eggs came as ordered. The two crepe orders were very good.... More

I first started going to brunch cafe in Roselle so happy the also have a location closer to me in McHenry. Never had a bad experience. Huge creative portion and unique daily special. I typically only order breakfast so I can't comment on lunch items. A must try in my opinion.

My #1 most favorite breakfast place. http://screencast.com/t/77ixLpeY My wife and I eat here often. The length of the line on a Sunday morning is a strong indication of the passion folks have for this place, as they'll wait and hour ans till brag about heir experience.

We love to eat at the Brunch Cafe. The service is fast and friendly, the food is great with many varied and delicious items. I've never had anything that I wouldn't order again. It's the restaurant we choose for breakfast or lunch....only sorry they aren't open for dinner. Joe & Mary C.

My friend and I stopped into this place on our way out of town. We were in McHenry for work and wanted a place near the hotel, with reasonable prices and a good variety to choose from. We enjoyed the meal, it was served quickly and correctly by our courteous server. We both had breakfast, she had the ham and... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant for breakfast in the McHenry area. The food is phenomenal! You can get the traditional things you're used to but there is also always something new to try. They use all fresh ingredients unlike many other places. The service has always been super friendly. You will have a wait if you go on... More

Busy busy busy on Sunday morning -- to be expected though. We did have to wait approx 1/2 hour, but staff was friendly and courteous. Breakfast was served quickly and was delicious. This is a new favorite for brunch!
