Though meals tend to bring friends together, meals peppered with magnets can push them apart. Enjoy an attractive repast with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of café fare at Omega Restaurant & Bakery in Niles.
Omega Restaurant & Bakery's all-encompassing menus of breakfast fare, sandwiches, salads, and meaty entrees inspired the restaurant's name, as they include every classic café dish from alpha to omega. Marking a dawn repast at the eatery are belgian waffles ($6.05) and egg skillets ($7.05–$8.95), which fill growling tummies with delectable fuel for workday endeavors or non-stop Sunday antique appraising. Lunchtime delivers lighter fare, including salads and fresh bakery items such as house-made cheesecakes, pies, and sweet cakes. Anchoring the evening hours, comfort-fare favorites include the homemade meatloaf ($10.95), the barbecue-cheddar burger ($9.65), and a soothing bowl of Spring Fresh laundry soup.
The recently remodeled dining room's spacious floor nestles leather booths on either side of burnished wooden tabletops. Large golden light fixtures hang over each table, bathing meals in an appetizing warm glow. Free WiFi is available, making Omega an ideal spot to refuel while pounding out the final pages of the next great American novel or a snarky email to a sloppy roommate.
Inside Omega Restaurant, ovens blaze as they lightly brown cheesecakes in spring-form pans, trays of tiramisu, and large baking sheets of fruit-filled danishes. These sweet wares, available for takeout, also accompany the restaurant’s hearty plates of American-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner entrees, prepared 24 hours a day. Servers supply tables with warm dishes such as fluffy three-egg omelets, grilled ham and swiss paninis, and hearty slices of housemade meatloaf.
In the main dining area, dark-wood tables complement cocoa-hued walls and framed abstract artwork to create a contemporary atmosphere. The adjacent coffee bar with glass bakery cases features complimentary WiFi access to pair with freshly brewed gourmet coffees, accommodating both customers on the go and laptops in need of a caffeine boost.
