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.

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.

Pancakes are good here but the omlettes are awesome! They are baked and very fluffy - even with egg whites! Great coffee and service too!

Very popular breakfast spot for a reason. The apple pancake is great in combo with hash browns and side of bacon or sausage.

Came here with the in-laws, my wife, and two kids. The place was packed, and I figured out why. The food was great and the service was good as well.

Was in the area waiting on a product to be delivered. Was told to go here by the people at the shop I was waiting. This is a very friendly location and the food was above average. I had the 2x2 pancake breakfast. It had 4 eggs, 2 pancakes and 2 pieces of bacon for $6.00. You cant beat that.... More
