Were driving along Sheridan Road from Chicago to Kenosha, Wisconsin, found this great lunch place right along the road. Had a wonderful lunch, splitting a Turkey Brie sandwich with french fries. Reasonable price, great atmosphere.

Had a lunch with girlfriends here. Sorely disappointed in portions, prices, and lackluster presentation. A cobb salad was the size of a dinner salad with tasteless tomatoes and cost $14. Vegetable crepe was a soggy mess. Highlight was the chocolate lava dessert.
