Happened to be in the neighborhood and wife spotted this cute little (Big) place in downtown Wheaton. Found a parking place, luckily, and went in to find a great and varied menu, dominated by breakfast with some salads and sandwiches. My wife had the chili for a light lunch and I had the Dutch Pit Roast Skillet. Both were very... More

Our food was brought to us hot and in a reasonable amount of time, but the restaurant was quite noisy and conversation was a definite challenge. Also, parking is scarce and much depends on luck. I don't think I would recommend this establishment.

Egg Lectic offers the best omelette's in Chicago area. The choice of omelette is interesting, not the usual fare. A great place to entertain friends with predictable quality, and excellent food choices.

Egg Letic has the best breakfast in the area, and at a nice value. There's a great variety of food choices (cinnamon french toast & crepes are delicious, plus all kinds of eggs), clearly noted and tasty healthy options and simple-to-fancy dishes. If only they were opened for breakfast-for-dinner!

This place needs to train their waitstaff. When you take the check and our money you really can not assume that entire change is yours. I had to hunt down the waitress to return the change which calculated into a 30 percent tip. So I have to rate the service as poor.

Most enjoyable meal on a college visit to Wheaton and Chicago. We went here for breakfast and It is a busy place; it is kind of loud but I worth it. I ordered crispy bacon and crispy hash browns...and both were spot on! If my daughter goes to Wheaton, I will make this a regular stop on my visits.

This is my go to restaurant for breakfast and lunch. The food is excellent, the menu is huge and the service is great. There are many long term staff members and it gives it a family feel. The only downside is the noise level, but this is easily overlooked as everything else is 5 star!

That makes it sound like it was terrible - it wasn't - just better places in the area for us. My complaints: Loud, moderate service and tasteless food. I had the july special - egg whites in wheat tortillas. so tasteless and truly watery from the veggies. I would have told the server to take it back - but she... More
