I have friends in Skokie and have been here twice and enjoyed the food both times. My only complaint is that portions are a little small but the quality is high. Try this place!

Five of us came from breakfast on a Saturday late morning, and what a disaster. As for the two stars, one is for the coffee..it is top notch for a breakfast spot, and second is my Mom likes this place. The space is light and bright and has nice large windows, but it was winter and there is no coat... More

I almost hesitate to write this review since the line on saturday morning will go from 5 minutes to 45 minutes... this place is very small but they serve the best breakfast i've found in Chicago... and I've been here since 1992. The room is a little noisy and the service can be a little slow... but it's all worth... More

Alexander's recently opened as the place to go for a fantastic breakfast. totally remodeled this corner restaurant is a great complement to the increased number of downtown Skokie restaurants. The staff is amazingly friendly and accommodating and the food is so perfect it defies imagination. Eggs were prepared perfectly with an omelet that had no browned or burnt portions so... More

I had breakfast here today. Honestly, I'd give them 3 and a half stars rather than four. The restaurant is on Oakton in Skokie which is a fairly large street. Unfortunately, they were doing road repair on Oakton so parking and getting around was a bit difficult. Wait till construction is over unless you live in the area. We started... More

Alexander's is such a pleasant, sunny place to have your breakfast or lunch. The menu is interesting that you will want to try something different each time. My favorites are the Tuscany skillet and the Chile Rellenos. There is also wonderful home-made soup. Everyone I have taken here loves it.

Stumbled upon Alexander's last Sunday looking for a nice sit down breakfast and what we found was simply extraordinary. If you like unique tastes in food that is excellently prepared and presented drive, bike, hitchhike to this place if you can -- you will not regret it. I have already returned once and would simply say the menu is exciting.... More

Its pretty new place. Went there over the around Labor Day Weekend. Great food...seems to be a spanish themed food but it was delicious. Best breakfast place in Skokie.

Several weeks ago I was at the newly opened Alexander's for breakfast which made me want to go back for lunch. My chicken sandwich was outstanding - much more than a typical "grilled chicken." The tomato focaccia was fresh and flavorful with tender chicken The sweet potato wedges were yummy. My husband had grilled cheese - not your standard grilled... More
