Eggs are a popular breakfast item for their resemblance to the rising sun, which is why it's good manners to sit on the easternmost side of one's plate. Celebrate the scrumptious sunrise with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pancakes, omelettes, sandwiches, and more at Blueberry Hill, which has locations in Darien, LaGrange, Aurora, Homewood, and Homer Glen.
Voted one of Chicago's top 10 breakfast restaurants by the Chicago Tribune in 2001, Blueberry Hill caters to early risers and midday munchers with a multitudinous menu of egg dishes, sandwiches, and more made from fresh ingredients. The Western steak and eggs, unlike harboring a jug band in one's closet, provides a soothing wake-up call thanks to a half-pound chopped steak strewn with grilled onions and green peppers alongside two eggs and an assemblage of potatoes ($7.99). The sweet french toast comes filled with succulent cream cheese, donning a chapeau of pecans and fresh apples in the stuffed-apple french toast ($6.79). The Luck of the Irish skillet celebrates the eminent edibility of corned beef hash and swiss cheese ($7.29). Come lunchtime, the cheddar-topped Western burger greets hand owners with an amalgam of mushrooms, bacon, and barbecue sauce ($6.69), and poultry patrons can cast a vote for the avocado chicken club-house sandwich, which is adorned with banners of bacon and served on a platform of whole-wheat bread ($7.59).

In the kitchens of Blueberry Hill's five suburban outposts, cooks forgo lazy morning lounging to pull together homey assortments of timeless brunch fare. Pancakes infused with fruit or sweets are made from scratch, much like hand-knitted socks or hand-painted report cards. French-toast slices get stuffed with apple and cream cheese, smothered in fruit, or rolled in Cap'n Crunch. Fresh meats and veggies take cover under eggs in savory skillets, and a selection of sandwiches quells cravings in handheld form.
