This charming breakfast spot first opened in downtown St. Charles in 2015. The owners wanted to open a restaurant where locals and guests could come to experience premium dishes at reasonable prices. The interior of the main dining area is covered in historic photographs of St. Charles. The artwork was loaned to the owners by the St. Charles History Museum. The menu is priced affordably and includes dishes like Hawaiian Pineapple Eggs Benedict and Waffles Biscuits and Gravy.

The Brunch Café: Roselle
When the word “brunch” is included in the name of the restaurant, you can be sure that you are going to have some great items on the brunch menu. While perusing your options here you will find traditional standbys on their menu including French toast and stacks of pancakes. However, it is the traditional dishes with a twist for which the chain is known. Diners can enjoy everything from stuffed French toast covered in fruit compote, to blueberry bliss pancakes and avocado-topped breakfast quesadillas.
