I recently went there twice for breakfast. It's a nice clean place... not too crowded during the week. The service was excellent, they were attentive to our order, the order was correct, and they made sure we had everything we needed. The food was really good. I had omelettes on both occasions... the first time I had an sausage in... More

Decided on breakfast nachos. It was served like a fritata or chilaquiles. It came with sweet potato hashbrowns, avacado, and jalapenos. What it really needed a fresh salsa or a pico de gallo. The breakfast burrito also came with hashbrowns, but could have been a bigger considering the cost. Service was ok...nothing to rave about.

We had a family Sunday Brunch with 8 adults and 5 children, all at 1 table. We enjoyed hash browns, omelettes, eggs benedict, waffles, etc.

We stopped in while waiting to see my daughter pass by in the Chicago Marathon. Miraculously, they had some open spots at the counter. It was a Sunday and I was reminded of the story of the loaves and fishes; somehow they were always able to accommodate everyone who came in from the huge crowds. There must have been a... More

Went in for breakfast. It was good, but not excellent. Food was hot but I thought my eggs were a tad overdone for "Basted Soft". My daughter ordered a Hashbrown entree that was supposed to have Onions. They offered on the side, but if not cooked into them it may have altered the taste somewhat. They were friendly and checked... More

If you don't want any of the excellent Mexican breakfast places around here then this place has a very good classic American dinner offering. I like it.

Went for breakfast as I left my daughter at UIC. She had a breakfast burrito (couldn't eat it all), I got the loaded mini-waffles (YUM!!) and a friend had a grilled cheese sandwich and silver dollar pancakes from the kids menu (teen-agers. go figure). WARNING: the silver dollar pancakes are PLATE sized. Delicious meal! Next time I'm going to have... More

The only good thing about this place is the decore and coffee. The waiter forgot our toast for the omlets! Wasnt attentive at all and grabbed his tip when we were still sitting! To add to the whole place, the bathrooms have huge pictures of some lady with two girls.Why somebody would put it on a toilet door? Really?

Great little place to get a quick meal- reasonable prices and service with a smile - here's a tip - parking in the lot is inexpensive if parking is hard to find- great place to hang with the girls or to bring kids.
