American | Effingham, Central Illinois

So enjoy every meal we have at Firefly. This was a Girl's night out with grandma, mom , daughter and daughter in law. Everyone had a most wonderful time. The food was excellent as always and our server went above and beyond to make our meal special. When grandma left her credit card by accident at the table, our server ran out into the parking lot to return it ! Our meals consisted of fried green tomatoes, pretzel bites, wedge salad, Caesar salad, steaks, fried chicken, mashed potatoes and our most favorite seasonal side dish of corn (it really is something special) Everyone was much to full for dessert, but next time we decided to give up our salads for dessert haha, even though the salads were wonderful too.

Bergie's Place
Breakfast | Champaign / Monticello, Central Illinois

Lets be honest. Everyone deserves to feel special, and many of us do not get to experience it. We live in a busy world, where getting away from it all is more of a pipe dream than a reality. This is where the Bergie’s experience begins. Bergie’s Place is dedicated to quality over quantity. We believe that you deserve to have a one of a kind experience that builds memories, be it at your own catered event or enjoying a weekend brunch with us. You will taste incredible takes on traditional dishes, as well as find amazing new dishes you have never had before. It is time to treat yourself to a Bergie’s Place experience! Bergie's breakfast is down home good with all made from scratch items featuring farm fresh eggs from Fox Run Farm. We have sourced a decades old sausage recipe that makes our biscuits and gravy the areas best. Our pancake batter uses real eggs, sour cream & buttermilk for a taste you won’t find anywhere else. You deserve a Bergie’s breakfast so stop by soon!! More
