YiaYia is the Greek word for grandmother, but regardless of where you're from or the name you use, grandmothers are woven into the fabric of our lives. For most people the tantalizing aroma seeping out of grandmother's kitchen brings back memories of fresh baked foods and mouth watering goodies.

Here at YiaYia's Pancake House and Restaurant we honor grandmothers around the world by serving you the finest home cooked meals with generous portions, warm-hearted service and only the best and freshest ingredients. Just the way YiaYia would've wanted it.

Grandmothers know the importance of a good meal and here at YiaYia's we couldn't agree more. So from our family to yours, welcome to YiaYia's.

We do catering! Call us for your next event.

YiaYia’s starts with the freshest ingredients we can find. We buy our produce from as many local sources as possible. Each of our delicious dressings and marinades are made from scratch right in our kitchen. It doesn’t get fresher than that. Rest assured that it couldn’t be better than this even in your own YiaYia’s kitchen. You know that warm smile your YiaYia gets when everyone is well fed and happy? Well, that’s how we want to feel every time you sit at one of our tables and enjoy our food.



YiaYia’s is passionately devoted to preserving the quality of our Hinsdale community, so enjoy your experience dining with us while knowing that a portion of our proceeds is put back into many charitable and local community organizations.
