I have been here several times and all the dishes are yummy. My mom ordered the crab cakes and said they were tasty and moist, the tomato soup was hardy and good for a winter day. My mom's friend had the chicken pot pie and devoured it Lots of chunks of veggies and chicken. So tasty. It's a fun place... More

We moved in the neighborhood four years ago and the Lucky Platter was one of the reasons we chose Evanston. We are never surprised to find our Chicago friends at this restaurant. Everyone knows it's location and reputation. The waitstaff is so attentive and friendly even at its busiet times. They understand what vegan and gluten free really mean! The... More

Small but quaint place for good, hearty breakfast at a reasonable price. Love the eclectic decor! Go early to get easy seating. Popular place during early morning breakfast hours so fills up fast. Lunchtime is not as crowded. Good lunch choices as well.

Came here for breakfast the other day; usually we're there for lunch or dinner. Still an amazing place. Don't skip the scone! Even plain eggs were great--good potatoes too.

There is a reason this spot has been popular for years: great food. Throw in great service, creative decor, creative food combos, and reasonable prices, and it is a win all-around. Never disappointed. Love bring out-of-towners to this cozy spot.

This has been such a good restaurant for so many years. Very good foods and just a few years ago they added a alcohol area in the restaurant!

Great all-around comfort food options, with some nice twists. The atmosphere is relaxing yet I always leave in a positive mood. I love their breakfasts and burgers. A good place for lunch (alone) on the way to work, or with friends.

A nice casual breakfast spot. I had the create your own scrambled eggs and the ingredients were on the light side. The eggs benedict was very good though, but the candied bacon was too sweet. Seating and service were very good.

We had dinner here. The creme sodas made with seltzer water, vanilla, and whipping cream were very good. My vegetarian entree, vegetable tangine, had the right ingredients for a vegetarian - couscous, broccoli, and garbanzo beans - but was heavy on tomato paste that made it tedious after while. My wife had whitefish that he said lacked taste. Our friends... More
