We were shopping down on Main Street and started to get hungry. The ladies were still shopping so I jumped a head in search of a place for lunch. Right next door I found Embe. And what a find! Sandwiches, salads, soups, etc. and a full bar. It is small but comfortable. Limited menu but specials daily. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a larger table for 5. Worth any wait! We all enjoyed our selections immensely. Very fresh! Loved it so much I went back for a beer in the afternoon and a Bloody Mary the next morning. It was really one of the best places we ate at on this trip. Be sure to try it next time you are in Galena, IL.

This was the only place that offered some food on a sunday night after 9 pm. It was a horrible experience.

Place had been open 10 months, nice selection of sandwiches , and one soup, some hot, but very skimpy, service was slow, one other couple in the place at 12:30 pm.
My sandwich had about 3 slices of meat, was to be warm (more like luke warm) and served with chips, no other choices.
Place was a wine bar that closed.last year, no changes to decor, just black walls. We were next to the kitchen, saw several questionable practices like storing bread on the floor, and flies around us
Would not recommend.
