Summer time on Twin Lakes- park near IL 53 and IL 14- Northwest Highway. Weekend where you can kayak, canoe, and test these out on the waters of Twin Lakes. They also have a beer tent, stuff for kids, karaoke and band. Good times.

The Diner feels like a real old fashioned Diner complete with bar seating in the front of the resturant for those single eaters out there. The service was wonderful and were very friendly and eager to talk and make our little guy feel special. The resturant was nicely decorated for the holidays and felt like we had almost "gone home" while still in a Diner. It was lovely. The food was hot and fast and cheap. The pancakes with blueberry are great as is all the other food we had.
They are a breakfast and lunch diner, and sorry there isnt a website.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the eggs sunny side up with an english muffin and American Fruit, but the pancakes with blueberries were pretty good.

This is a small family style resturant with a kids menu. The menu features is a blend of American and Greek. The resturant is decorated in a friendly and pleasent way. The ceiling mural was nice and reminded me of pictures of Greece. The service was fast and friendly; the prices were reasonable. I ordered their Greek Chicken and my partner ordered the Phili Steak Sandwhich. The portions were large and on the whole tasty. The food is so-so on the whole. I would go back for the Salad!
Favorite Dish: I absolutly adored their Greek Salad! Oh the large olives, and chunks of fresh feta cheese were divine. The salad dressing was absolutly spectacular. Though I don't enjoy anchovies, I did try them again to be sure; the salad was blended with some wonderful fresh vegtables and truly was delightful.

This is a local indie coffeehouse that has an extremely helpful, friendly owner. I have always been pleased by her recommendation and her command of faces! I have never ever had a bad cup of coffee from Norma's. The coffeehouse has a small whimsical seating area and a variety of coffee and tea accouterments for sale.
Favorite Dish: What Norma Drinks! Seriously that is what I ask for :) It is a delightful sweet caffinated expresso specialty.

This is a gem of a place. The food is great, and most of the pasta is made on site and fresh. The place is normally busy during the weekend dinner hours. It was pretty quiet when I was there, but the place was clean and tidy. The menu is wide and well planned. It was nice to see an Italian restaurant with real Italian on the menus and a blend of traditional and more modern takes on a wonderful cuisine. The staff was very friendly and attentive.
Favorite Dish: The Capellini Caprese and Lasagna are both delicious. It is definatly best to ask for salad dressing on the side.
