Stopped for lunch here while on business travel with an employee. We decided we needed something other than a quick fast food meal and I was glad we did. I ordered the soup and 1/2 sandwich special and had the bean soup with a turkey sandwich. The soup was unbelievably good. It had a sweet taste and the ground beef... More

Great before, great now! Biscuits and gravy just like grandma made! The homemade soups are amazing and they come with most sandwiches! Must try!

What a spot. Busy on Sunday morning but big enough to hold lots of people. We had the best waitress. Sense of humor and just fun. I liked the different choices of breakfast items. Lots of French Toast selections. One of our group had one. Another had the Mattina skillet. Both excellent. I saw an egg in the basket type... More

This place is just great. I haven't had anything here that I didn't like. First and foremost the servings are generous and you will never leave hungry (and usually have leftovers). The soup is phenomenal (top awards to the chicken dumpling on Mondays). The chili is also outstanding. Breakfasts come with your choice of toast or pancakes. The coffee is... More

Been here many times and the food is always good. The service this time was pretty shaky though. One thing I did it last time is when you get your bill long before you're finished eating and that's what happened this time. The bill was placed on our table right after the food came and the waitress never returned after... More

The service was very good and the food came out extremely quickly! The eggs were done perfectly and my wrap was medium sized and the fries were hot and fresh. This place is fantastic!

This is a nice little cafe in the heart of New Lenox. Good food, a little pricey, great service. Parking can be a little tricky during peak hours. All and all not a bad place.

Stopped in here when our "Go To" was too crowded. Very good breakfast. The skillet was tasty and the pancakes were very good (basic but good). We'll definitely come back!

My wife and I went out for breakfast and wanted to try a different place for Sunday breakfast. We got to Matina a little after 7 and walked in and had to shout for someone to come out and serve us. Service was okay, but since we were the only ones in there, the one waitress should have been more... More
