This is a special place for breakfast. It is also much larger than it looks like from the street.

Inspired: the entire staff is fantastic!

Service: Yolanda was excellent

Food: fantastic

Atmosphere: busy morning crowd

Return: oh yes - maybe even tomorrow!

Saturday morning experience was great. It was our first visit. Great breakfast, fairly priced, friendly waitress. All four of us ordered different items and I think all of us were pleased. The place was busy...but we were seated promptly and the food arrived quick and hot. The restaurant was clean. I will return.

I love, love, love Egglectic Cafe. When I was in college at Wheaton, I came here more often than I probably should have. On a return trip here last week to visit family still in the area, I gladly took advantage of the situation in order to visit Egglectic.

On any given day, Egglectic is busy. Happily, they are able to move people quickly and the wait is never horrible. When we came on Sunday morning - around 11 - we only had to wait for about 10-15 minutes. There was even complimentary coffee (what a genius idea!) for us while we waited.

Service is fast and friendly, and the food is good enough to justify the major caloric splurge. It should be noted that you might want to avoid this place if, say, you are looking to lose a few pounds. Portions are of epic proportions, and whether you opt for sweet or savory, you are going to leave happy, but very, very stuffed.

Lots of great options ranging from omelettes to pancakes to waffles to crepes (omg the Nutella crepes...amazing), and incredibly priced (most dishes are between $7-8!!!!!).

Visited this restaurant for the first time after moving into the neighborhood. My husband and I enjoyed two delicious egg dishes - the greek omelette and the italiano omelette. Service was quick (we ate at an off-hour - after 1 PM on a Friday) and efficient. Menu has lots of choices with reasonable prices.

Great breakfast in Wheaton! Don't be worried about the lines outside, the wait was pretty minimal also being a college town and move in weekend for Wheaton there was a friendly atmosphere to visit with folks while you wait. Our wait was almost too short as we were visiting. The food was awesome. Be sure to try a few different things with your group. We got the stuffed French toast and the santé fe frittata. Both were delicious and we could not finish the meals. Everything on the menu looked great.

Almond-Crusted Stuffed French Toast
Our thick French toast filled with raspberry jam and cream cheese, crusted with toasted almonds and topped with sliced banana and raspberry sauce.
$7.99

Santa Fe Frittata
Crisp bacon, avocado and three cheeses scrambled with fresh eggs, diced green chilies and green onions over grilled potatoes. Topped with sour cream and salsa.
$8.49
