We were staying close by and were recommended the Eggshell Cafe for breakfast. WE were very well recieved and the service was quick. We had eggs and pancakes and fresh orange juice. All of it well prepared and tasted good. Nice when the serving staff take time to talk to guests too. Nice theme with soccer pictures everywhere!

Very busy on a Sunday late morning but the wait was not too bad, maybe 20 minutes. Service was good and the food was good.

I have lived in Deerfield for a very long time and I had never been here before. We had intended to go elsewhere, but the line was too long. This was worth it, a really nice surprise and literally, almost next door. The restaurant is lovely, the location is great, and the food is wonderful. My only complaint is that... More

Had the typical bacon and eggs breakfast it was great bacon was very good. My husband had a cheese omelette and let me taste . It was also great. Very fluffy.... More

We were visiting the Deerfield area from out of town. Went for a mid-morning brunch based on reviews. We were not disappointed. Eggs were cooked exactly to order. Crepes were delicious. We enjoyed it so much that we went back later that week. Service was excellent. A delightful find! I highly recommend it if you are in the area!

Great breakfast and lunch spot. Always busy. They will take a reservation for large groups. There is a small private room that holds around 25 people. Very extensive menu. Food is fresh and very good. Service is friendly and prompt. Skillets and omelettes are good. So are salads and sandwiches. Lots of choices for people with special food requests and... More

Food, service and price all brilliant. Serves large, as in almost all American restaurants. But breakfast far cheaper than in the hotel where we were staying.

This is my 2nd time visiting this location, and the food both times was ok. The BLT was a little light on meat. I decided to go with fruit instead of fries, which was 2 slices of pineapple and a slices strawberry. The savior was the free cream of spinach soup that accompanies every lunch.
