It is what it is

A typical place for coffee. The food is at best average and the service is the same. If you are looking for a place to sit and have coffee or just visit there is nothing wrong with this place. There is just nothing special about it.

I'm disappointed to hear you feel this way about our restaurant, Ben! We've been serving the St. Charles area since 1991, so we'd like to think we wouldn't still be open today if there weren't anything special about our food and service. Our breakfast items are especially popular -- we'd love for you to give any of those a try... More

First time here and I enjoyed it. They have some items which are out of the ordinary which I liked. The Italian benedict was very good. Definitely be back. Expect crowds because of the food.

We ate here three times in the past week. Once each for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast was delicious as always. Even though we went on Sunday morning, we didn't wait long to be seated. Lunch was a new experience for us, as was dinner. We were happy with both meals. I had the Philly cheesesteak and it was great.... More

We used to eat here all the time when we lived closer. We tried it again recently and didn't think it was quite a good of a bargain as it once was, but the food was still good as well as the service.

Family and I went here on a Sunday morning just as a spur of a moment type deal. Based on parking and wait time thought we were in for a long wait. Luckily after 10 minutes out of a estimated wait time of 20 we were seated. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered different options we... More

Gingham's is always crowded, which is a positive sign of a good restaurant. The service is fast and friendly. The food has that home cooked taste that so many chains lack. I'd highly recommend it.

The restraunt was ok. Food was pretty simple. Round Table seating was very uncomfortable. Food was ok. But tasted more like it was out of the box than home cooked. Bathrooms were pretty nasty. Disgusting is one word to describe it. Saying goes, if the bathroom is unclean then it's probably not the best place to eat. Would I go... More

Homecooked food and a real diner feel gives this place an easy 5 stars. We visited on a busy Sunday morning but we didn't wait very long for our food. The pancakes are amazing!!! This is a must try diner if you're looking for an inexpensive sit down with tasty food.

Gingham's is my favorite place for breakfast. Their pancakes are the best in town. Food is always hot when served. The wait staff is always attentive and very friendly. The place is always busy, a testament to their good food.
