FR Bakery is one of our favorite breakfast places. The shaded patio is a great place to start a day. The food is good, the service is fast, and prices are reasonable. Our dog was welcome as well.

Our family of five just had breakfast here. Great bagel sandwiches but I do wish they had a few more breakfast options. Coffee was near perfection! Tight quarters inside so sit outside for more room if weather permits.

The food, large portions, service and price exceeded expectations. If you are visiting Carl Sandburg home, you should stop and dine. Very casual and excellent bar.

This place has phenominal breakfast sandwiches and aromatic coffees. It's a wonderful spot to stop in for breakfast. We also took a number of pastries home for breakfast the following day. Those were a big hit at home.
