On a Sunday morning when most breakfast places in the City had lines a mile long, we decided to have breakfast near the airport. Since I grew up in Des Plaines, and my mother was a regular here, I remembered the restaurant and thought it would be a good choice.
I guess everyone was still in church because 75% of the tables were empty. Those that were in attendance were elderly. Still, we greated warmly and had a young and friendly wait person. The service was great and the food came out very quickly. My wife and one son had fruity pancake concoctions that they enjoyed. My other son had french toast eggs and bacon and it was all gone. I had one of the skillets. It was good, but a little dry.
While you won't get anything state of the art here, judging from the elderly clientelle, you get an honest value and very friendly service.
They do have a private room in the back. We used it for lunch after my mother's memorial service 3 years ago and it worked out very well. As always, very friendly service.
