We were in town on business and stumbled upon this place which made our morning. Childers is clean, bright, friendly and the food is great. The breakfast menu pleases everyone and the quality is solid. If you start your day here you will not be disappointed.

Based on the reviews & menu we decided to try Childers while in Peoria. We became skeptical when the table behind us had to send a plate back. Sure enough we had a raw hamburger & barely warm Benedict. We did not hesitate to send both back. In the meantime a waitress spilled a drink on another gentlemen's coat. Neither... More

The food (we had breakfast) at Childers is fresh, well made, pretty (yes, I said pretty), and taste so good!!! If you're in Peoria you MUST go to Childers.. the parking lot is not big, but it's SO worth it!

Two menus: breakfast or lunch and both were inventive, with sweet and savory options for breakfast and creative savory items for lunch. I was so pleased with my wonderful healthy option that was a nice surprise of a superfood Benedict! Quinoa cake and poached eggs with braised kale was perfect for my restricted meal plan while my family had sous... More

This restaurant is worth a stop. The cheerful modern decor and great service with fresh flowers on the tables, a variety of coffee creamers, a specialty coffee, one of the most interesting breakfast menus, and great food warrants it as a new breakfast destination even if it is 90 miles from home. A variety of eggs Benedict options caught my... More

I have not been to the new one in Junction City but my friends and I regularly stop into the University Ave. location for lunch. The menu is surprisingly varied with many different salads, soups and breakfast and lunch entrees. They are not open for dinner at either place. Last time I had the shrimp tacos and they are very...

My son ordered the Caprese chicken focaccia sandwich. He loved it. My husband and I ordered the breakfast special -- triple berry stuffed French toast. It was wonderful. We will definitely go there again.

This place has some "fine dining" items on the menu WITHOUT the fine dining prices. C'mon, $8.99 for a pork belly omelet? And another that has white truffle oil? These prices are a steal for the quality and variety of ingredients. Came in around 11:30 on a Saturday morning and while they were doing a brisk business, the wait was... More
