Known for it's cupcake food truck, Courageous is a quaint restaurant across from the train station. It serves a full breakfast and lunch menu. I've only had breakfast (Saturday & Sunday) and can vouch for the oatmeal which is served in a large mason jar with fruit and the omelette with poblano pepper which you have to try! The coffee is good and self-serve. Plenty of sweets to choose from ans fresh baked bread which I haven't tried but noticed customers coming in for bread only. Very kid-friendly and not so sure giving them complimentary donuts is a good idea because, the energy level is high!

The almond croissant and complimentary donut holes were delicious. Breakfast taco and potatoes were good too.

Cashier rung me up for a large drink when I ordered a small and didn't see the order till after I paid. A bit overpriced too but good overall.

I love this place... Its a rare find in Elmhurst . The coffee is great.. love the mismatched mugs. The quiche is delicious, along with the omelets. The prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly. I like the little outdoor seating (weather permitting) and the casual feel of the place.
Each order comes with complimentary donut holes too!
It has great hometown feel, cozy, and casual. I love the story of the bakery . Check it out , you will not be sorry. They are closed on Mondays.

I placed a large cupcake order for work. They were able to do it no problem on two days notice. I got 5 dozen of their assorted cupcakes. The ordering process was easy, the staff was friendly. I had to wait a little bit at pick up so they could finish tying the boxes, not a big deal, and they did offer me a coffee while I waited.
Everyone loved the cupcakes and it was really fun to discuss the different flavors. The favorite was the turtle and the mint. The cupcakes made a colorful and pretty display at work and felt like a really nice treat for my 40 employees. Standing around eating the rich sugary cakes put smiles on a lot of faces that day. Also, the story of the bakery is really special.
