My best breakfast of the week was right here at O'Farrell Sisters. It's not an easy place to find. You have to take Lake Shore Dr around to find it. When you do see the building it is a generic white and green brick place that is kind of boring. Parking is limited, but once you walk around the backside you find out the back really is the front. A tree covered patio with a full glass side gives the building a completely different look than what you see when you drive up.

Inside the first think you notice is the stark black and white checkered floor and red chairs at the counter. Typical silver diner tables are spread along the windows. It's a wonderful homey feel.

The food is absolutely wonderful. The hashbrowns had a beautiful crisp to them. For 50 cents, you can add grilled onions on top. They too are perfectly cooked. The eggs were cooked to order. My over easy ran when I poked it with my wheat toast. The poached eggs on the Traditional Bene were perfectly round and ran when opened. The whole grain pancake was fresh and flavorful. The cinnamon bun was very big and tasted great.

I loved the food and atmosphere. I highly recommend visiting this place.

In town two weeks are several places for breakfast and by far this was the best. Service was fast, this is the busiest spot we visited for breakfast.

This is a staple on our trips to Boji. The BEST breakfast in town. Period. Pancakes? Cinnamon rolls.... no dieting on this vacation, let's put it that way, but so totally worth it.

This off the Main Street restaurant is one of the best places. It obviously is becoming Better known because it is busy and delicious.

The sausage and pancakes are the very best. We have been coming here for more years than I want to admit. A few years ago the iconic cleanliness and consistency of food disappeared. This year it was back to what we have come to expect with a the same great pancakes and sausage but a few more great entries on the menu.That iconic checkered floor is clean again as it was at the start. It is obvious the new management really cares about the tradition.
