I guess we can't all agree! I love this place - it has become my second kitchen. Whenever I get a break for lunch, I love to relax to one of their fabulous salads. The service is so but the atmosphere is quaint and fun.

My lord, this place sucks!!! The describe themselves as being a "post hippie" "funkalicious" restaurant, but what they actually are is a very pretentious, uncomfortable, ugly, smelly place, with horrible tasting food. I mean REALLY BAD

Excellent breakfast with a variety of "out of the norm" options to choose from. The service is good and friendly. And the decor is so much fun to look at! Definitely worth a visit!

One day I was just craving a burger and decided to give the lucky platter a try. I ordered a takeout burger and sweet potato fries, and walked to go pick them up. Service was good, and the food was ready promptly and was still hot when I made it home. This is where the good stuff ends....

The fries were burnt, and pretty far from tasty. The hamburger was, I consider, very close to awful. It was packed with onions and seasonings, and lord knows what else to make it taste like a bad meatloaf. The cheddar on it was good, but for some reason bacon bits were used instead of strips. Along with most people, I've had my fair share of burgers, and this was by far the worst. I would have rather driven to the store and bought ground beef and a kaiser roll and made my own. I see that others have put great reviews for their breakfast and ambiance, and this may be true, but in my experience, two thumbs down.

This is my standard spot for brunch when I have company. The restaurant makes great eggs benedict, and also has other breakfast options that scored high with my guests. The atmosphere is casual and funky, the waitstaff is friendly and the food is always good. They make yummy cornbread that now has to be requested rather than it being served as a 'snack'. I've had their salads, some egg dishes, blintzes, the yummy strawberry rhubarb pie, some of their sandwiches and one time had a good dinner there too.
Specialties to try: Hibiscus Iced Tea during summer, the Tamarind Lemonade, their pies, the cornbread, the flaky.
Public transportation is easy-there is a bus stop by main street, and both Metra and CTA (purple) have a station nearby. Street parking requires a bit of searching, there is a valet across the street in the evenings.

Great breakfast spot (also great for lunch and dinner but I mostly seem to go there for breakfast). Flaky scones, well seasoned sweet potato fries. Big portions of food and eclectic art adorning every square inch of the place.

Lucky Platter is a fun place to go for a casual dinner. They have a very creative take on a classic American diner menu. The mixed drinks are great too.

I just went here 2 wks ago, the restaurant decor is average but food is unique but good. I had the raisin french toast and hash browns, the toast was encrusted with cereal, made it crispy and unique, had french toast almost everywhere but this was very new, Hash brown also unique and quite good. Service was very poor, was not busy but took a long time to take my order and get my coffee. I would recommend overall, but not the best.

Pros: food, originality

Cons: service, parking

Words cannot describe how this place makes you feel. It's a little like going to a great friends dinner party. Relaxing, and fun to look around at the great decor. The food is so varied from pancakes to sandwiches, salmon I just love it.

Editorial from

In Short
A self-proclaimed "sumptuous love nest," this place is comfy and cozy, with a found-art feel. Odd artwork adorns the walls, tinfoil balls dot the ceiling, and lighting makes everything seem strangely space-age. Morning…
