brunch in the western suburbs?

elc515 Jul 7, 2008 05:59 PM

I am a city dweller looking for a great brunch spot in the western burbs. We will be staying in Glen Ellyn for the weekend so anywhere between Oakbrook and the Naperville-ish area would be perfect. We thought about the Clubhouse, but it might be a bit pricey for a group of 12 or so. I did a search on the boards and found some Easter options, but several of the places I found only do special occassion brunches. Any ideas would be very much appreciated!

    what about honey in downtown GE? it reminds me of bongo room in the city, and you should be ok with a group of 12 if you call ahead.

      Allgauer's in the Lisle Hilton hotel has a Sunday Brunch (about $35 per person, which I believe includes champagne). It is a full offering of breakfast and buffet items, including smokde salmon, shrimp, hot and cold dishes -- not just a breakfast buffet but a full luncheon buffet with breakfast items included. Food there is always very good.

      Allgauer's is supposed to have a good one. And yes, I've heard that Drury Lane is very good. We've done Tango in Naperville's brunch a couple of times and really enjoyed it. Meson Sabika used to have a brunch that was good, but not sure if they still do.

        Drury Lane Oak Brook?
        I don't think that it's a "special occasion only" brunch place.
