Always Excellent

A group of us always have breakfast on Wednesday mornings and have found the food, service, catering to our special orders always excellent. It's a place I enjoy going to, not just for the food, but the atmosphere in which I can always be comfortable in meeting with friends.

We have been to the Bruch Cafe on several ocassions and we have always had excellent food and good service. The only drawback is that since it's so popular there usually is about a 20 minute wait if you go on the weekends.

Have eaten here dozens of times and have never been disappointed. Staff is friendly and always around. Daily specials are amazing. My favorite is their Quiche - when available I always order it - should become a regular item. You won't leave hungry.

I go there for breakfast and find I get the same thing over and over because it is so delicious. Nice atmosphere, good food, good prices, why go anywhere else.

Anything you order will be excellent. Fast and friendly staff!! The only Issue, is that sometimes there is a wait; but it is totally worth the wait, so wait.

Everytime my wife and I go to Brunch Cafe I'm expecting that "this" will be the time we have a bad experience. I mean how can a small private owned restaurant like this keep up the great service and expectations every single time we go. But they always seems to deliver. Their weekly specials are amazing, I am pretty sure... More

As the title reads, it is always the best place to go for breakfast or lunch. Eggs, pancakes, French toast... I have yet to order something that isn't delicious. I would definitely recommend to anybody.

Being the owners of Riverside Chocolate Factory in McHenry, we are not far from this much applauded breakfast/lunch business. The food quality is consistently amazing and the portions "beg for a to go" container. Your pleasure is about to be served...Hippie Bob

This place is the place to go for breakfast or lunch. If you are hungry they will definitely fill you up. Good sandwiches and lots of choices.
