We Believe in Big

We do everything a little bit bigger.

It started with our big servings of homemade food. Generous plates of fluffy eggs, piles of crisp bacon, tall stacks of pancakes topped with cultured butter and maple syrup...we were always known for our big portions of American classics. It was something that always worked well for us; something that our customers came to expect.

And then the concept of big evolved in our minds...and a larger sense of abundance became our way of life. It’s not just about our plentiful portions. It is also about the sense of warmth and love that we share with our guests every day. Big is a way of life for us now. Big love. Big empathy. Big nurturing. Big laughter. Big kindness. This BIG philosophy has turned our restaurant into more than a place to eat, but also a place to meet and connect with our neighbors every day.

Hometown Flavor

The Garafolo family has been in the food business in Homewood, Illinois for nearly a century. From Fluff’s Donuts, to the Garafolo Fruit Market, The Spot-Lite convenience store, and The Egg and I, our family has fed generations of Homewood families. It’s been an honor to be a part of this community in such an intimate manner.

We love this town and we do everything we can to serve our neighbors with good food, strong support, and provide a place where our diverse community can connect. We are proud of what Homewood has been and what it has become and we cannot wait to be a part of what the future holds.

Come on in. You’re all welcome.
