Yes, Virginia, there is an Eloise and --- based on her American Bake Shop ---she's pretty much about love, generosity and devotion, just like Santa. Seriously, the sandwiches and baked goods are extraordinary. really, truly extra-ordinary. They serve Canoes Coffee, and there is an extensive coffee/beverage menu. plenty of parking open 7:00 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday

A real local gem of a bakery and restaurant. It's rare to find a place where the owner/operator/chef takes such great care in everything thats served. Every baked good is just fantastic and the coffee is probably the best served in the area. Did I also mention the rustic breads that the sandwiches are served on are simply the best.... More

I love the vegetarian special on honey wheat!!!! LOVE it!! It is one of my favorite sandwiches. I've actually never had a sandwich here I didn't like. Also, their cookies, brownies, lemon bars, etc. are wonderful! So why only three stars? Unfortunately there is no ambiance, the tables often aren't clean, and the service is downright unfriendly! My husband and... More

A great bakery and sandwich shop owned and operated by people who care about what they serve. We go here several times a week!

Are you looking for a perfect capuccino, the best pecan roll in the world, an excellent soup to warm you up at these cold days and be treated like a king or queen by Eloise and her staff, go to Eloise in Vernon Hills

I am always in search of family owned places to eat at. I found this place on a long walk while my family shopped on Black Friday. When I went in there there was no one in there, so, I thought I was a taking a chance trying them out. But, soon as I sat down there were streams of... More

We were a group of 10 and were pleasantly surprised with how quickly we got a table on a Sunday morning. Our waitress was great and everyone said they would come back for the food if we lived in the area. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the breakfast menu. Great for families.

I've had lunch here several times over the last year. They have some unique bakery & food choices and decent lunch specials. The service has always been uneven and average at best. I'm not sure if the owners are socially inept but they don't seem customer focused. Example would be no crackers for any of the many soups they serve.... More

I come here a lot for lunch. I usually buy a tuna sandwich and a tiger tale. It's not the best service but not terrible either. If you avoid a cinnamon roll or other pastry it's quite healthy. If you love cinnamon rolls come here.

I've been coming here on my lunch hour for years. The turkey special is awesome, it's one of my all time favorite sandwiches. The homemade bakery items are great as well. My favorites are the lemon bars, roll ups and cinnamon rolls. It's a bit more expensive than say a panera, subway, jimmy johns, etc but it's worth it. It's... More
