Had lunch and late night dinner here on two days. Excellent chicken salad, fresh salads, and GREAT pies. Also, good value. Two different servers, both friendly and efficient. Right next to hotel.

After an early MRI at Carle hospital we needed breakfast. Perkins has some great menu options (I tried a "Smash", Cyndi had their potato pancakes... Both very good) but what brings is back is the service. We haven't had a bad experience there.
