“Team Breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

The food was good and the portions were perfect. Was disappointed on how they handled the bill. We suggested that they take our orders by jerseys numbers as it will make things easier for the wait staff. Unfortunately, they got confused and didn't know how to separate the bills. Ended with one large bill which we had to figure who owed what.
One of the waitresses was a bit snarky about having separate bills and kept saying her way was the correct way. This is something you don't say to a customer.
If it wasnt for the attititude of one of the wait staff, review would have been very good.

“worth checking out..........”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have never had anything but average food and service at this restaurant, but I know others who absolutely LOVE it! My advice would be to check the menu online to see if the selections and prices appeal to you and then give it a try. You might be one of the lucky ones who finds it to be five-star quality. They have an enormous parking lot, which is a plus.

“Who's Idea was it to change the French Toast???”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2011

I have always loved your restaurant but today I was there and ordered the french toast and it was served on the thickest bread ever....now someone would say oh that sounds good...but not in this case...it is sooo thick that one of the pieces were totally soaked so when I cut into it...it was like slop in the middle....(too thick to cook through)..then the other piece must not have been soaked as much and had nothing in the middle it was just dry bread...Texas toast is one thing...this is over 2 inches thick....it was Yucky, Yucky...

“YUM! I'm glad you came to Northbrook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2008

The eggs were perfect...the bacon crisp, the pancakes supurb
Love the fresh squeezed orange juice, endless cup of coffee and great service too.

It takes about 15 minutes for me to get there...but it's definately worth the trip. You offer Wi-Fi service, it's tempting to organize my papers and spend the mornings with you.

Conveniently located at Dundee and Sanders Road in Northbrook with Free parking too!
