I attended a retirement dinner here, and found a very eclectic and unique restaurant in Glenview, very much like you would see in Chicago.

If you have been following my reviews, you know we have tried various restaurants on the east as well as west coast. In the midwest for phenomenal tortes and great coffee, try Jolanes, located in Glenview bear ABT. Have never been disappointed.

I liked the food in this restaurant. Service was quick, staff friendly. They also have good deserts. Location of the restaurant is a bit remote though, away from towns.
