This place is not the best breakfast place in Wheaton. The eggs were hard, the potatoes were raw and the toast was dry. We gave it one more shot because people raved about it and disappointed again!!

We dine here frequently when we come down to the Wheaton area and it is always predictably very good. Hard to recommend anything specifically as our experiences have always been good.

The menu is diverse, yet not so many choices that it is overwhelming. I'm more of a waffle/pancake person, but I ordered the omelet once and I was really happy that it wasn't greasy at all. They use a lot of fresh ingredients such as fresh spinach and tomatoes. I was disappointed when they took crepes Suzette off the menu.... More

The wait staff is always friendly and outgoing, especially Patty. The food is always hot and have only been disappointed once with my order.

This little place is always packed and I can see why! The breakfast here is simply fantastic, with excellent service and friendly staff. Great for meeting with friends for an informal breakfast. I love this place and will definitely be returning soon. Highly recommended.

My family and I went here on a Sunday morning and the place was very busy. After waiting 30 minutes for a table, we were seated right by the front door. Bad location. People are resting there arms and hands on the partition while we were trying to eat. Very cozy and not relaxing. It was total encroachment in our... More

Every time we visit the Chicago area, Egg Lectic is a must! We have taken our family here for breakfast and this time, we enjoyed breakfast/lunch together. The food is always imaginative, delicious and well prepared - made even better by the very accommodating wait staff. They really go out of their way to make this a relaxing experience. My... More

I stopped by here for lunch while on business. The menu has lots of choices. I had the eggs benny with Canadian bacon. It was really delicious. The service was excellent. The restaurant is cutely decorated and very clean. The lunch arrived quickly, too. Next time I'm on business in this area of Chicago, there's no doubt I'll return here.... More

Upon landing in Chicago I was in the mood to get something to eat but not your typical large food chain. So looked up on Trip Advisor and came upon this restaurant. Being that I love eggs this was a great place to be. The food was exceptional, you must try the cinnamon toast egg plate. It's sweet! They even... More
