Our family ate breakfast here while visiting during the weekend. We each ordered a different breakfast/brunch dish and enjoyed each one very much. Somewhat of a home cooked meal flavor, the breakfast specialties all sound or were delicious. Fairly priced given the dishes and amount...More

This is a good place for breakfast. I decided to try lunch here. The turkey club was tasty but priced at $10. When I asked if it came with a side, such as chips, the waitress said it would be an additional $1.99. This is...More

Overall my meal was fine, but I only ordered whole wheat pancakes, which were good, but nothing spectacular. I think everyone at our table felt the same, good food, but no rave reviews. There are many interesting options on the menu, and I'd like to...More

Here is a restaurant that you want to save for special occasions so that it doesn't get ordinary for you. I ordered the Denver with cheese grits and potatoes. I reached for the salt and pepper as I usually do, then hesitated realizing that at...More

We were there just before noon on a Sunday. They were busy but we only waited 5 minutes or so for a table. I ordered "Peoria's Best Breakfast", eggs sausage or bacon, with hash browns and a 1/2 order of biscuits and gravy (one large...More

They have the best unique food here and I am watching my weight. I had an egg white grilled chicken omelet, light on cheese. It was great. Love the wheat bread.

The best breakfast spot in CIL! I am not from Peoria and a friend suggested Childers Eatery! Everyone's plates looked appetizing and the food was amazing! I cannot wait to come back! The staff was incredible too!

Interesting and varied menu for breakfast. Excellent coffee, and fresh tasting ingredients. Would have given five stars but service was pretty slow ( and given the wrong plates) for a not so busy morning. More than willing to go back though

Incredible, choice of food! Many items not ordinarily found at restaurants. The service was exceptional. Our food was delicious! They even have a garden out back where they grow vegetables for the restaurant! Awesome!

Honestly, I would not go here with 14 people. If you will be there on a weekend it will be difficult to get seating. I would definitely call to see if they would take reservations and if they can handle a group that large... More
