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!

I saw the ratings on here and expected to pay much more for everything on the menu, but it's all very reasonable! They have excellent tacos and breakfast options, with a wide range of teas. Definitely recommended.

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
