We chose to go to Otto's Place today from reviews. We've been to nearly every breakfast place in Galena and we're cautiously optimistic that we could find something to fit our lifestyle(low carb) despite the boasting of delicious high carb options like homemade quiche and cinnamon rolls. My husband ordered a la carte(ham steak and 3 eggs over medium) and... More

Sunday morning breakfast, we arrived without calling ahead and our timing was perfect, as we were seated right away. A couple of Otto's Mimosas to start, husband had perfectly cooked eggs, great flavor in the ham, pancake and fresh fruit. I had the omelet of the month-gorgonzola, apple, bacon. It, along with the home fries and wheat toast (best ever... More

Stopped in here on a day trip to Galena with my daughter based on Trip Advisor reviews. Very nice place with excellent food. She had the cinnamon French toast and I had an omelette with apples and Gorgonzola. Both were excellent. Well balanced and diversified menu with something for everyone. Great meal and the staff was excellent. You may want... More

Loved this place. The food was amazing. I had the egg tacos and my son had the banana nut French toast. After I finished my plate I moved onto my son's dish. (He's 5 so he couldn't eat the whole thing)The French toast was out of this world. The atmosphere was so cozy. I'm looking forward to my next trip... More
