|. My dad (a regular) brought me to both locations and I enjoyed the food. The Mokena location is small and the chairs for ME (bad back) were not too comfy BUT the service is great and the food is good. They post daily specials which are worth ordering. Good place for kids if you have any because they can watch the trains pass by.
The 191st location (which is closer to where I grew up) is pretty new and is really nice inside. Same there as far as great service.
The owner goes back and fourth from the locations which is great because it shows how involved he is and how much he cares that his locations are taken care of.
I have always enjoyed food from these kind of places over the usual chain places.
Keep up the great work!.
. My wife and I have been stopping at EggCetera Cafe in Mokena for quite sometime now. It's an adorable little mom and pop place right in downtown Mokena by the Metra train station. Recently the owner's son has opened a second location at 10120 W. 191st street, also in Mokena.
Well on our recent trip we ordered some daily specials, the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich (which included onions and peppers) and steak cut fries. A Granny Smith Apple, Strawberry, Walnut, Grilled Chicken and Cheese on a bed of lettuce with Poppy Seed Dressing salad (man was this an outstanding salad). A bowl of Beef Barley soup (excellent!) and a bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup. Along with two ice teas. The total bill came to roughly $25 dollars.
So with extremely friendly service and reasonable prices, Maria and I highly recommend EggCetera Cafe to everyone. It is definitely worth the stop.
. First of all, this place is great for kids - we went to the new 191st Street location, and with their poured concrete floors you would think the noise would be a problem, but not so (other people have mentioned that it was an issue - we were there at 9am on a Saturday morning and the place was packed and we didn't have any noise problems). And taking a toddler there was no problem because there were many families there, and the floor means its easy to clean up after the unavoidable mess of a toddler.
The pumpkin pancakes are out of this world. I know they are seasonal, so get them while you can. They were fluffy and flavorful, and the compound butter that came with it was perfect, no need for syrup to drown the pancakes.
My husband had the french potato omelet and was completely wowed. We tried to recreate it at home, but it didn't even come close.
They did a wonderful job of balancing flavor and texture in both of the dishes we had. We've already taken out-of-towners to this restaurant and plan to keep doing so.
. A nice breakfast/lunch place in downtown Mokena next to Metra station. The place is not to big. I love a good omelet and was not disappointed with the meat lovers. You have a good variety to choose from and the food is fresh. The service is always friendly and inviting.
. Cute, quaint, breakfast/lunch place in downtown Mokena, right next to the Metra station. This place gets packed on Sunday mornings/early afternoons, and for good reason. The food is fresh and delicious. They could probably stand to have a little more help during the busier times, but who is in a rush on Sunday morning? Despite that, the staff is still very friendly and pleasant. I normally don't like most breakfast food and usually hate eggs, but I love their omelets/skillets/etc.
