“An Eclectic Haven!”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

We visited friends in Evanston in September of 2011. This is a real neighborhood place on one of Evanston's main streets. The owner, an artist, has decorated the spaces with an amazing collection of his own paintings (for sale on the sidewalk too), found objects, books, and assemblages (the Christmas-decorated shark was my personal favorite).

The food is equally eclectic with an intriguing mix of American diner favorites, Mexican, and Lebanese, with specials hand-written daily on carbon-paper slips attached to the menu.

Service was speedy and friendly. This place is now a must for our trips to Evanston.
