Visited a few times as dine in and it was really good. Carry out was disappointing, pancakes scorched, eggs semi scorched, and turkey sausage rubbery with hard gristle pieces inside. Not thrilled this morning.

Really good soup! Excellent blintz good breakfast platters and skillets. This restaurant is very close to I90. It was easy off, easy back and a great lunch while traveling! If I lived in this area I think this place would be a favorite. Very sweet waitress, too.

I am always looking for new places and had a business meeting earlier in Elgin and I just started driving North and saw this place and went in for lunch. I was greeted very nicely and seated and I went with the special of Fried Perch and it was very good. I also had clam chowder, veggies, and mashed potatoes... More

My daughter and I were on our way home to Rockford and stopped here off 90. At first we were a little skeptical because it looked like an old Dennys but we decided to go in anyway. So glad we did, this was an excellent breakfast. Prices were reasonable. Good portions. Great tasting food. The service was outstanding! I would... More

My son took my to the restaurant for breakfast, on the way to visit friends. The staff was very friendly and attentive, the prices were reasonable; however the food was ok. My bacon, scramble eggs and potatoes were jus warm, less than perfect. Was not satisfied with the place. Doubt I'll return next time I'm on the area

We stopped here on a whim, and we can't rave enough about this little mom and pop style restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere, very kind and accommodating staff, and delicious food (large menu!). The omelet was huge, my husband said the bacon was great, I personally ordered one of their specials: red velvet-infused french toast. We all got something different so we... More

Great place to go for breakfast. The service is good. The food is well prepared. It can get very busy but the wait is usually not long.

This is the closest breakfast place to where I live. The food is delicious and the portions are big. This is a great little family joint that you can have breakfast or lunch at. Not pricey at all. Everyone who works there is really nice.

Let me begin by saying that I have a small hangover. This sets the tone for the kind of breakfast I wanted. I got the gyro skillet. It has 4 eggs. Four. Plus the hashbrowns, a ton of feta and onions. And toast or pancakes. The husband got the gyro omelet. Clearly we wanted meaty, salty, heavy food. We did...and... More
