This place is pretty good if you need to get in and out quickly. You get your food very quickly after placing your order. Not a lot tastes homemade. Gravy on the biscuits and gravy was from a can. Homemade muffins upon being seated were very good.

Excellent breakfast. Large portions and everything is fresh and hot. The sausage is amazing and you can get your eggs from a local farm. Service was great with a friendly wait staff. This is our go to place for breakfast in Algonquin. Jim

Have gone for breakfast and lunch. Food items are excellent and there is a wide variety of offerings. Quality, price , quantity and service is exceptional. This is place is a must stop. Only draw back is parking. But that is just to show you how great a value gem this place is.

I go to Rainbow at least once a month for breakfast, often more than that. Weekdays are a lot easier to get in, the weekends its pretty packed, but the waits are never too long. Order anything, its all good!
