I came here on the recommendation of my friend, a local, and I was very impressed. We got a lot of food for a good value and it was all delicious. I can't wait to come back!

Awesome cinnamon swirl pancake, chocolate chip pancakes and a south of the border omelet A great find for a Sunday brunch. Definite local feel with lots of northwestern students.

I have been coming to Evanston for years, twice a year for business. Clarke's is the perfect little, unpretentious breakfast diner. Reasonably prices, very friendly and fast service. Normal breakfast stuff, nothing fancy.

Enjoyed a great breakfast here. Plenty of food and very good. The service was great as well. I would go back for lunch to try the food for that.
