Try anything that speaks to you. It's all really good!
We've eaten here several times, & never been disappointed.

Service may be a little slow when crowded, but not bad.
Wait staff is generally attentive.

We try to make a point to eat local while traveling - opting for locally owned cafes over large chains. We found Fresh Start Cafe while searching for a cafe in the Elmhurst & Oak Brook/Oakbrook Terrace area. We ended up eating at Fresh Start both mornings during our visit to the area! We opted for takeout both times but the restaurant itself was nicely decorated with plenty of seating options. The food was terrific - Cinnamon raisin French toast, scrambled eggs, potato pancakes, breakfast sausage, potatoes - all good. The portions were big and the prices were reasonable. Highly recommend to get your day started off right!

I like to try and stop here once or twice a month for breakfast. I love the Simple Skillet, but really I have had other dishes also and they are all good. It's a bright cheerful place with a really personable staff. And you can get genuine fresh squeezed orange juice.

Nice place! Eggs benedict with sausage & gravy, my mouth is watering thinking about it! French toast was good too!

We had not been here in a while and decided to go for breakfast. Always had a good experience and this was no different. Food was delicious, Service was top notch and the coffee was hot and fresh. Waitress was very good, efficient and friendly. Everything went well and we really enjoyed the meal. Definitely going back again as soon as possible.
