The best omelets anywhere. You will need to travel far to find a better breakfast omelet, the veggie or the Mediterranean is as good as you can find. Glad this place in only 3 miles from home,

I've only been here a couple times, but thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The menu is very versatile and offers some very interesting dishes. I'm very eager to visit again very soon.

We had a large group. Tables were arranged so we could all sit near each other. Food was good and we got separate checks.

I had stuffed potato pancakes and they were simply awesome. The portion sizes are larger than most people will eat. Because their food is so good, you can expect to wait in line for a bit, especially on the weekends.

This is our favorite spot for breakfast or lunch whenever we are in McHenry. We've never seen such an extensive menu of tasty and healthy choices. We could eat here every week without ever ordering the same thing twice. Can't wait to go back again.
