We traveled form IN to meet our niece (away at college) and boyfriend. We had googled and seen this was an area local "chain". It's on the corner in town, and parking is on street or in garage. We met 11:30 on a Sunday. We...put ourselves on waitlist which made wait less. They said they only take reservations for 6 or more. There are two rooms, so it's not tiny place. It's very bright and clean inside, pleasant atmosphere. It was very busy inside, but our waitress was unflappable, very friendly and efficient. We each ordered something different, and NOBODY was disappointed. Portions were LARGE. I had a stuffed potato pancake (with egg and bacon). Others in the party had chilaquiles, pancakes/egg/ham (the piece of ham was HUGE and tender), and cinnamon waffle (large and more a delish dessert). We two ladies ordered a vodka orange cocktail (like a dreamsicle) and it was also delish. We paid about $70 for the meal, not including tip. Would def try again if in area.More

We enjoyed our first visit so much that we had breakfast there the next two days. The staff were all pleasant and professional. The food was plated very well and absolutely delicious.

Food was very good all were happy with their meals. The place is very crowded on Sunday mornings however our food (most of it) came out quick. All were almost done before the pancakes came out was difficult to get refills. These things I blame...on management as they need to staff accordingly or put the table load on the servers that can handle it.More

Met two friends at Brunch Cafe this week. None of us had been here before and we were delighted with our choice. The food was delicious with very fresh ingredients and beautiful presentation. The apple gouda melt was outstanding, the toasted apple bread truly made...this sandwich extra tasty. Friends had the avocado toast and the stuffed avocado. Beautiful fruit accompaniment was a lovely touch. Will definitely go back as there were so many choices on the menu - it was hard to decide. Nice to see this area of downtown St Charles on the rebound.More

I've eaten and Brunch Cafe several times and each time has left me full and smiling. Today was no different. My wife and I split lox and avocado toast. The lox were delicious, with ripe tomatoes, crunchy red onion, capers, cucumber and cream cheese served...with a lightly toasted fresh bagel. The avocado toast was perfect. Small ripe grape tomatoes on a bead of arugula sitting on a thick avocado spread on whole grain toast, and the entire thing drizzled with the perfect amount of balsamic dressing. In the past their eggs Benedict and omelets and always been delicious. There is often a line out the door, but it seats a good number of people and when really crowded the wait times rarely exceed 30 minutes. Plus they'll text you when your table is ready.More

Great for breakfast, lunch or brunch. Lots of great items on the menu. I’ve been here several times and the service is always excellent. Good choice for weekend or weekday breakfast in downtown St Charles.

I ordered the beet salad with goat cheese, pecans and ancient grains on baby kale. The salad was generous in proportion but there was hardly any ancient grains to be found. Overall it was tasty and satisfied but would definitely like to see more of...the grains on this salad as it is the main source of protein in this dish.More

We love Brunch! It's a meeting spot for another couple and ourselves, and it never disappoints. Our favorites: the Portabello Benny, the amazing selection of hot teas, and the always-awesome Intelligentsia coffee. Our server on our most recent visit is Myra, and she is an...absolute delight! Competent, warm and friendly, but professional. We always cheer when she's our server! The staff we have had both for table service and at the register are always top-notch. We don't feel rushed, even when the restaurant is busy-- that has kept us happy customers (unlike other breakfast spots in St. Charles where you are pressured to rush through your meal). A few tips for first-timers -- avoid the Brunch potatoes -- they are one of the few items we haven't liked. Opt for hash browns, fresh fruit, or sliced tomatoes. The booths in the back room are not as spacious as the ones in the front room. We always ask for a front room booth, and the staff are happy to oblige if they are available. If you haven't tried the Brunch French Toast (soaked in vanilla bean, topped with fresh fruit) or the Apple Bread French Toast, you can't go wrong with either one. They will allow you to get them as a "side" but why put a limit on a good thing? Nice walking distance to Blue Goose Market for a bit of specialty grocery shopping afterwards, or a walk to the river, if you are in the mood for either. Good parking in the garage immediately across the street. We keep returning -- and their rewards program gives us extra incentive to do so! (Not that we need any -- this place is amazing).More

Love this place! Once I ordered baked blueberry French toast here. Delicious! The following week I ordered the same thing at a brunch place in Oak Brook...vastly inferior and for more $ than Brunch Cafe. Today I noticed grass-fed beef and a bun-less burger on...the menu. Like that! I had the Thai Salad today. Loved it!More
