Loved this little gem. Only open for breakfast and lunch, however I only ate breakfast there twice while visiting family. Portions are huge! Won't go away hungry. Having ordered standard sausage and eggs was offered either fruit or hash browns and also choice of toast or pancakes. No little side order of pancakes here. Seperate plate of pancakes dusted with...

This is a great value with great service and food. Get there early if its the weekend you will have to wait a bit if you've slept in. Portions are substantial and always tasty. Always #1 on our breakfast places.

It was only the 2nd time I had a chance to eat there. Each and every other time we went for breakfast the line was top long. I understand the lines if you aren't at the door early, the food was excellent

Fantastic food, whether breakfast or lunch. Great portion sizes. Don't miss this one. The omelets are wonderful and you can get egg whites as well. Always busy - so may need to wait a moment or two.

Great service and food. The apple pancake is a must try. Order the junior size, it's enough for two people. Good to dine at a place with great food without breaking the bank!!

My favorite restaurant to go for breakfast or brunch in Dupage County. I always make it a point to stop in here whenever I am in the area and have recommended it to many family members and friends who equally love the restaurant. Baked omelets are fabulous as well as the various skillets on the menu. Plan on being very... More

Have you ever went out for breakfast and after eating left feeling hungry? Well thatvwill never happen at Red Apple Pancakes. The portions are huge and generous. The place is always busy but run like a well oiled machine so you are not really waiting long. I had an omellate that was filledvwith ham and cheese.
