Valentine Dinner Romance

My wife and I had a wonderful Valentine Day fixed price dinner for $35.00. A very tasty cheese plate, home made soup, and a crisp fresh salad were served as separate courses. A huge cut of tender prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes and a cream spinach was followed by a lovely dessert plate... read more

Went back to Eastgate with a colleague for lunch. This inexpensive coffee shop had a wonderful lobster bisque worthy of a fine dinner. The French dip beef sandwich was great. My colleague enjoyed his lox salad. All this eating outside on a very pleasant day. What's not to be pleased about.

Excellent food, welcoming staff, uniquely different. Eastgate Bistro promises food twisted on their own way - quiche is completely unique, crustless and almost new creation dish... small business owners and locally owned restaurants, that's what people want, and that's what makes a great little town.

Very cute little cafe. I was surprise with options on menu, and then owner said on a charming way: " if it's not on a menu, doesn't mean I can't make it for you". My food was fantastic; salad was fresh, and lobster soup hot, nice and creamy..Definitely coming back!

I was looking forward to this dining experience with my 9 year old son because my brother, who isn't from Oak Park, recommended it to us, specifically for the quiche (and we've lived here for 5 years and never realized it was there). Honestly, this was the worst quiche I've ever had. I must say, they do get an A... More

I have tried several times to like this place. At first glance it looks like a charming little cafe with small gift shop items. But the coffee at this "cafe" is mediocre to bad. Breakfast options are minimal and the pastries look and taste like they were taken from a frozen pastry box; so is the quiche. This morning i... More

I was so hopeful when this place opened half a block away from my home. Most of the food is pre-ordered and re-heated on site. The menu hasn't changed since it has opened, though I've been told the wife of the owner does make specials at home and brings them in. The owner seems very nice; I just wanted more... More

Dinner at Eastgate Cafe last night was their pulled pork sandwhich, which was melt-in-your-mouth yummy! It came with au gratin potatoes and side salad. Paired with a glass of Pinot Grigio, it made for an enjoyable dinner. Service was friendly, not at all rushed (I had 1-1/2 hrs. before my class started).

I'll admit that I haven't spent a whole lot of time at the Eastgate Cafe, which is a shame because I live literally one block away. I've stopped in a couple of times during my evening walk to grab a mug of hot chocolate or some tea and each time I wonder why I don't go more often. The cafe... More
