“Great breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is the place for an upscale breakfast. Innovative and tasty dishes are standard here. Service is very good. One often waits in line here but it is well worth it.

“Best place in Downers Grove for breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Good food, excellent service, fair prices, and they leave the coffee pot on the table. I especially like the Berryola (berries, granola, oatmeal) for breakfast and the California Club for lunch. I avoid their O'Brien potatoes and the salad, but substituting fruit is no big deal.

I'm sorry they are not normally open for dinner, maybe during some car show Fridays, but the market is not there.

“Great place for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Good fresh food, good coffee, friendly prompt service, have never been disappointed with breakfast here. Nice atmosphere and decor. Decent table spacing too, you're not bumpiing into somebody when you pull your chair out. Might have to drive around a bit for parking on a busy day, but there's also a garage a block away. The "scramblers" are good.
