The so-called "new" Rainbow Restaurant is now on the west side of York Street about 100 feet further north. Sam owners, same good food, nicer ambience.

This is our favorite breakfast restaurant in Elmhurst. The food is fresh and fantastic, and the service is really good. I love their California omelet, and their skillets are really good as well.

local favorite, reviewed on yelp and others. If you google you will find several listings. Would love to review this as we eat here every time we visit Elmhurst, which is 1-2 times a year for 16 years. ALL the locals know Rainbow very well. Always busy.
