I agree with others...Debbie the manager is totally rude! Don't understand why she keeps her job! Please get rid of her...she is tarnishing the place!

My wife and I have been to several local breakfast restaurants. This by far exceeds all others for variety, service, and very fluffy large egg omelets. My wife had a western omelet and took half of it home. Mine was a make your own with 4 ingredients chosen out of 15+ options. You don't have to look for your choices... More

This place might be busy and the wait a little long-but it is worth it as the amount and types of foods, accompaniments and also the service is excellent. They will change up your order as requested and make the best possible experience for you.

I love this place. I highly recommend their banana crêpe! Service is great. The only thing is that it can get a bit loud in there.

I was visiting Chicago for the Thanksgiving holiday and met up with a friend for breakfast. It was four of us total for breakfast on black friday. The service was decent, not fantastic, and the food was just ok (i.e., our turkey sausage was dry and overcooked). When we arrived at the restaurant, it was during the breakfast rush, but... More

No, you can't be seated until everyone is here, even if your husband is visible on the lot parking the car. No you can't have coffee in your own cup, even... More
