We received a friendly greeting upon arrival, the coffee and coffee service were good and the food was tasty and reasonably priced. What more could we ask for with breakfast. We were from out of the area but will stop again if we return to the area.

The cinnamon pancakes were phenomenal. Chicken fried steak was the best I ever had. Large portions. Service was great too! My husband is very fussy, hard to please in the restaurant dept, and he loved it 😃

I visited this restaurant twice in one week and was sadly quite disappointed with the food on both occasions. French dip sandwich was very fatty and I ended up not eating most of it, however the bread it was on was very tasty! The next time I ordered the chicken sandwich it was not good either. Fries were delicious and... More

My son and I went for Mother's Day. It was amazing, there was a little bit of a wait but I had expected that. They provided coffee for everyone that was waiting (outside). I had the cinnamon roll pancakes (not on the menu) my son had biscuits and gravy. There was so much food and it was inexpensive. I can't... More

We got there around 8:30 on a Saturday morning and the place was full but we lucked out and had a table empty while we were giving our name to the hostess. Service was good but there were some glitches. I had ordered ham and cheese but just scrambled arrived. The wife ordered link sausage and she got bacon. They... More

My daughter has been telling the husband and I to try this place for almost a year now. I finally got my husband to take me to Koffee Break (what locals call this restaurant). We got biscuits and gravy for an appetizer. Perfect for the breakfast anytime of the day lover. The one thing that really makes their biscuits and... More

Have eaten there several times now, each time was excellent, but due to their growing popularity it can be very busy, so expect a wait on weekends unless you arrive earlier than 9AM. The cinnamon roll pancakes are absolutely awesome. The breakfast is the best in Rock Island, good portions, good taste, at a good price.

Beware, they literally put green onions on everything! I have a picky husband and child and everything we got had green o ions covering them. We even asked for no onions on the hash because it stated that it had onions in it. They left out the white onions but covered the top of the entire plate with green onions.... More

We've heard about this restaurant from several people and we decided to give it a try for their breakfasts. WOW! Great selection of breakfast items. On this particular day the special was Prime Beef with eggs, included potatoes. We asked for the Cinnamon Pancakes (not on the menu, you have to ask) instead of toast or regular pancakes. This meal... More
