Café Gaston is one of our family favorites for great pasta- eaten in or taken out. My personal favorite it the Tomato Florentine Pasta with Chicken. We also love the Bowtie Pasta with Spinach and Artichokes. My husband often orders blackened Tilapia. Large portions- so we always get to eat twice off of our favorite items! It may not be... More

Cafe Gaston has the best pumpkin soup, pastas, and polenta around. Everything from breakfast to dinner is delicious. You must try their special recipe vegetable burger. We love the mashed potato vegetable plate and vegetable pot pie. Their fish is delicious, too. Specialty coffees and teas to desserts and fruit plates are all excellent!

This little French bistro is tucked away from the mall in Orland park, Illinois. The food is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have a little bakery attached with some tempting desserts. I had the combo which was an interesting assortment of flavors. The crab cake was tiny, the polenta was firm & tasty, veggies were good & the... More

I have been here on a couple of occasions before and had been pretty pleased. But this time, not so much. First off, it was 84 degrees in the dining room. That's just way too hot to be comfortable and this was the first day that it was a little cooler outside. Second, I had a turkey sandwich which was... More

I live in town and I frequent this place for their breakfast or lunch. Their specialty drinks are great and their soups are very tasty. My favorite soup is the French onion and my favorite breakfast dish is the omelette. Gaston is not a chain and the owners are very nice, always willing to make accommodations when needed. Must check... More

This is a café (has outdoor seating), not large but roomy enough. You place your order at counter and they bring food out to you. Quite a selection of breakfast items and lunch items. They have a "side of the day" - today was creamy pasta salad w/peas, corn, etc. - very good. Have specials each day as well as... More

Cafe Gaston may not have much of an atmosphere but don't let that fool you. There food is great for breakfast, lunch or even supper. The food with its French theme is all homemade. Haven't had anything I didn't like.

Gaston used to be an affordable, non chain restaurant, an exciting alternative to mid day Orland Park restaurants. I hadn't eaten there for a couple years as our family moved out of town. We were excited to go back when we returned to town. It was terrible. The food was not okay. It was bad. The crab cakes were inedible.... More
