We eat breakfast and sometimes lunch here and it is consistently good. The cinnamon buns are covered in frosting and really hard to resist. The egg dishes are good and the bacon is really good. They usually serve two sides with your meal, so one can be healthy and order the fruit cup instead of the cinnamon buns. The Apple... More

It had been quite a few years since our last visit, but on our recent visit (early April) the overall quality level here was still very, very good. Top-notch prompt service and very tasty offerings make this well worth the short trek north from the heart of downtown. Authentic home-made corned beef hash and eggs was superlative.

Encouraged to stop by a friend who extolled Sather's incredible cinnamon rolls we were delighted in a wonderful breakfast. Everything we ordered was terrific and the portions are good sized. The 'fantasy french toast" was tremendous.

Heard about this place from several people, and although we had to stand in line, and the place was crowded and rather noisy, the cinnamon rolls were, indeed, worth all that and more. Makes one wish they'd open a branch closer to home! It may not be worth a trip to Chicago just for these rolls, but... it might!

This place has the best cinnamon rolls! It is a little cramped and very fast paced but as long as you get there early it's fine. I don't remember what the name of the dish that I got was but it was cinnamon rolls made like french toast. Rachael Ray recommended it. It was a very good decision but it... More

This is a small place with Swedish origins. They have cinnamon rolls. And a full breakfast service. It was pretty good but it didn't knock my socks off.

Delicious breakfast. I had eggs Benedict and my wife had a standard 2 eggs a d toast with bacon. The ham on my Benny was carved off the bone ham. We had coffee, which was frequently topped off. Do yourself a favor and order the cinnamon rolls.

Soft, slightly sweet bites of the best comfort food I've had in awhile. They are worth the trip . Take outvir eat in. Parking behind the restaurant.
