A friend whose taste I trust told me about this breakfast/lunch spot- glad he did. Tucked away in a small strip center , this is a gem I had eggs, crispy hash browns and delicious country ham. My wife had a very large gyros omelette...She is a stickler for good coffee and said this place passes on her rating system Roomy booths and tables in a large room provide enough space for all Just go - you will love itMore

Angie was my server both days I ate there. The first day, I had eggs Benedict. It was pretty good but I was disappointed that the hollandaise sauce seemed a bit runny. I brought friends back two days later (they are closed on Wednesday) and...really enjoyed the meal. I'm picky about corned beef hash. Lucky Penny's was doggone good!More

This restaurant is off the beaten path and thankfully for GPS I would have missed it. The place is small but inviting. The wife and enjoyed our breakfast and to be perfectly honest I normally steer clear of hash browns due to poor seasoning not...in this case. They were seasoned and cooked well for nice crunchy top. Only downside is for being a smaller restaurant the background noise was loud making it difficult hard to hear and to engage in conversation with raising our voices to hear each other. I definitely would recommend this place!!!!More

Selected this eatery from the website, served breakfast all day. I had 2 eggs over easy with bacon, hash browns and toast at 1:30 pm. Everything I ordered was cooked perfectly, eggs a little runny, bacon, just short of crispy and the hash browns were...different and tasty. Hubby has hash and poached eggs, again all cooked to his liking. If time allows on our visit, we will return for breakfast.More

Nothing special. We ordered delivery for work lunch and everyone had the same consensus. Nothing special, probably won't order again. Wrap was very wet and messy and burgers were alright.

This has become my go-to place for breakfast in Naperville (I finally went there for lunch and it was also delicious, but I really enjoy the breakfasts :)). The service is great, coffee is good, and the breakfasts are yummy. The skillets are my absolute...favorite, and I love how they actually listen to how you want your food. Whether it's eggs over hard, scrambled soft (yuck, but one of my breakfast companions loves this) or toast that's dry.... they seem to always get it right. They're also great with allergies and ingredients, and there are lots of vegan/vegetarian options. The donuts are dangerously good, as is the homemade jam. Honestly, I've never had a bad breakfast here in over a dozen visits. Finally, they are very good about not rushing you. I've sat with friends for hours (not when they are very busy!) and they will bring us coffee with a smile over and over again. Great people and great restaurant.More

Referred by a friend. In the area, had a taste for a cheese burger. We are vegetarian- checked out the menu. They had the Beyond Burger, delicious! We will go back to try breakfast. Small restaurant in a strip mall, a must go.

We went here based on reviews and were. Ot disappointed. Most items are 8 to 12 dollars and generous serving sizes. Definitely something for everyone. Reminds me of a old dinner. The only thing that wasnt really good was the donuts they were nothing special...and I would.order those again. Service was decent not overly friendly but they did their job. Watch the hours they are only open into the afternoon. We would go back and everyone on the teams wishes they would have done breakfast with us after seeing the picturesMore

Service is always quick and the food is always good. The pancakes are like clouds they are so good. I also recommend the chicken and waffles. The food is wonderful. The service is great. The only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars...is because it is a little on the pricey side.More

Met a cousin there for breakfast on Sunday. There were 5 of us in the group. Each had something slightly different, but each enjoyed their meal thoroughly. Service was excellent. While not in our backyard, it was worth the drive. Would make the drive again.

Penny has brought back Wilma's sense of home cooking (this restaurant has been many incarnations,) and I regularly enjoy breakfast there after working out with my partner. During the week we see other regulars, and the place is bustling on the weekends. If you like...jam, its all homemade! Worth your time, and they accommodate gluten free needs too.More

We went for a late breakfast and were greeted quickly and water served along with drink orders. The menu was extensive for all varieties of food. The place was clean, friendly and the service was excellent. I thought the prices were a bit high or...at least on the high end of mid-range. It's in a corner of a strip mall and not easily noticed. Give it a try.More

Had no idea this cozy, friendly little diner existed in the big town of Naperville! Try the Turkey with bacon, provolone and fresh blueberry preserves on Sourdough!! Delicious! If Breakfast is your thing, they serve it all day, Omelettes were scrumptious as well! Open daily...until 3pm, hidden in a small strip mall on Ogden Ave., don't miss out on trying this place! Your "in luck" if you are looking for good food, great service and cozy ambiance!More

My family and I were visiting a jumping place in Naperville and decided to stop by the Lucky Penny Diner! We had the Grecian chicken, southern eggs Benedict, Blt summer salad, French toast, grilled cheese and a kids pizza. The food melted in our mouths....The chicken is organic Coleman chicken. Everything was fresh and delicious. The food melted in our mouths. The fries were freshly cut not frozen. The owner greeted us and checked in at our table to make sure we were ok. She also gave us many suggestions because there were so many food selections to choose from the menu. She made our family feel like we were family. It’s a breakfast and lunch restaurant with so many options. We look forward to dining at Lucky Penny again!More

Visited the Lucky Penny for weekday breakfast with a bunch of girlfriends. Any meal out with friends, can be an ordeal with slow ordering and even slower service, but not at the Lucky Penny. The service was attentive and efficient, but not to the point...of being irritating. The staff clearly works as a team and it made for a delightful group breakfast experience. The vegetarian eggs Benedict was fairly predictable, and that’s just fine. Fruit cup was above expected/excellent. Clean interior. I enjoyed the variety of artwork adorning the walls. It may have been for sale, but I didn’t get close to it. Overall, a very pleasant experience with memorable (in all the best ways) service.More
