“Great Breakfast or Lunch at anytime”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We were served by Alex who's was most delightful individual. He's been there 9 years, and it shows that he cares about your dining experience. The food was yummy, with a wide assortment of breakfast and lunch items. Omlettes, pancakes, homefries, etc...
Because of Northwestern University, the place has a young vibe. Prices were a little steep, but not totally unreasonable for the portions, ~$50 for three over-fed adults.

“Great diner with healthy breakfast options”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't super greasy spoon! My egg white (and my friends' regular) omelets were fluffy and light! They have a number of great options for everyone. I also would like to note that the waitress was helpful in arranging our meal so that it was actually cheaper than the way we had ordered it. Also, prices are great and portions are huge!

“Comfort food in a cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Fluffy three-egg cheese omelette is a great way to start the day! Portions are large. Prices are reasonable.
This is a nice spot for breakfast before visiting Northwestern. Lots of cute shops nearby, too

“I'm a fan of Clarke's.”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Perhaps it's because a group of guys took me out to breakfast at Clarke's during my first visit to Evanston. Perhaps it's because I've enjoyed so many great conversations while eating with friends at Clarke's. Or perhaps it's because they really do serve great food (I'm thinking of their breakfast skillets, burgers on pretzel buns with crispy onion rings, chocolate malts, and other goodies). Whatever it is, I'm a fan of Clarke's.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Big yummy breakfast -- felt like comfort food. Service was slow, but it was move-in day for the Northwestern students, so it was pretty busy. Overall -- I'd go back -- but you've gotta be hungry!
