The food was wonderful with great variety. Large portions. Be sure to see the tree growing up through the house.

Great food, quaint setting...there's even a real live tree growing through the dining room. Small, so you might wait a bit during peak time. Go during the fall and walk the Fox River bike path afterwards for a real treat!

First time dining here over the weekend. I'm already looking forward to the next. Service and food were excellent. The quirky surroundings including the tree growing through the roof just added to the charm. Had breakfast. The egg dishes were nicely prepared. And the side of cheese grits was huge.

We love Benedict's, when we have the time. The service can be a bit slow early in the morning, but the wait is always worth it. The omelets are large and tasty. I had the Moroccan omelet this time and was very pleased with the interesting mix of dates, bacon and goat cheese. We recommend Benedict's as a charming, tasty... More

I've been to Benedicts a couple more times since my last review and I think it's noteworthy that the place just keeps getting better. The food is excellent! They prepare beignet just like you get at Cafe Dumond in New Orleans and their pancakes, french toast and eggs benedict are to die for. I dare you to tackle the cherry... More

This is one of our favorite neighborhood spots for breakfast and lunch. The food never disappoints and I've sampled the menu extensively. My favorites include the crab and avocado omelet, crab cakes Benedict, herb cheese eggs and salmon, and biscuits and gravy with homemade biscuits and turkey sausage gravy. The seasonal menu is great too. All summer long, Benedict's featured... More

There are little nooks and crannies to sit in and windows to sit at. There is a calm, friendly feeling from the knick knacks on display. Homey...Good Homey.

I love the quaintness of Benedicts. It's in a historic house, the service is usually just fine, the menu selection is amazing, and their specials are delicious. Whenever we decide to go out for breakfast, we choose Benedicts. On the weekends, plan to arrive before 9am to avoid a wait.
