President Obama at breakfast in Chicago. / SAUL LOEB, AFP/Getty Images

It was an old home kind of Friday for President Obama.

The president -- and former Chicago resident -- had breakfast at a favored old stomping ground, Valois Restaurant in Hyde Park.

Obama, who dined with Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, ordered two eggs over medium with bacon and hash browns, and then plopped down a pair of $20 bills.

"I don't take free food," Obama said.

It was a familiar place for Obama. A glass cabinet featured Valois coffee mugs adorned with Obama's face, while assorted Obama clippings and photos hung on a wall.

A separate menu board featured "President Obama's favorites," including "N.Y. steak and eggs"; two eggs with bacon or sausage; two pancakes; steak omelet; Mediterranean omelet; and an "all-vegi" egg white omelet.

The president, who spent Thursday night in Chicago after headlining two campaign fundraisers in the city, returns to the White House in the early afternoon Friday.
