Our server, Karen, was fantastic. All menu items are served all day. My sister had breakfast - the hash browns extra crispy just as she asked. I had lunch, the marinated portobello sandwich, and it was amazing. Great location and an historic building.

Old school breakfast, original architecture and long time staff make for a fun meal at Alex's. This place has been here since at least the early 80's when I lived in Pokip. Delicious dishes, fun counter to sit at, it's like stepping back in time....More

Had a small egg sandwich on a roll, a bowl of soup and a cup of coffee for $16.50, which included $2.00 tip. Too much for small portions and food that is just ok. Won't be going back.

I've been going here since I was a kid and still enjoy the staff, the atmosphere and always a good meal. Usually it's either breakfast of lunch. It had that welcome feeling I remember.

Food was great! They offer a wide variety of wines and beer. Parking was easy. Service was a bit slow as the place was packed, but worth the wait. Great vibe inside with antique furniture.
