Across the street from Home Depot, this is a nice, quiet, attractive restaurant with excellent food, appealing presentation, friendly, efficient staff and an owner who obviously knows how to please customers.

I can't think of a better place to have breakfast, brunch or lunch. A very personality plus staff. There are many many choices but you can't go wrong. Eggs? Of course every which way or your own way. Waffles, pancakes, crepes-all the above. I had a Belgian waffle with crispy bacon cooked into batter and all over the top. I... More

Not very group friendly, but great breakfast steak and eggs. Gyros was also good. Eggs and bacon and omelets good. Owners not that friendly but wait staff are. Used to have a room for our club but they kicked us out for a larger group without any politeness.

I haven't been here in a long time but decided to meet a friend here as a change. This is the only place I've been that actually crisped the hash browns well done as I asked. Very attentive service with coffee and water refills. Almost no wait on a Saturday at 10am (maybe too full from Thanksgiving turkey). Parking lot... More

We were staying close by and were recommended the Eggshell Cafe for breakfast. WE were very well recieved and the service was quick. We had eggs and pancakes and fresh orange juice. All of it well prepared and tasted good. Nice when the serving staff take time to talk to guests too. Nice theme with soccer pictures everywhere!

Very busy on a Sunday late morning but the wait was not too bad, maybe 20 minutes. Service was good and the food was good.

I have lived in Deerfield for a very long time and I had never been here before. We had intended to go elsewhere, but the line was too long. This was worth it, a really nice surprise and literally, almost next door. The restaurant is lovely, the location is great, and the food is wonderful. My only complaint is that... More

Had the typical bacon and eggs breakfast it was great bacon was very good. My husband had a cheese omelette and let me taste . It was also great. Very fluffy.... More

We were visiting the Deerfield area from out of town. Went for a mid-morning brunch based on reviews. We were not disappointed. Eggs were cooked exactly to order. Crepes were delicious. We enjoyed it so much that we went back later that week. Service was excellent. A delightful find! I highly recommend it if you are in the area!
