“Just OK”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

My wife and I stopped for a light lunch on a fall Saturday afternoon. I had the special chicken Chile, which was good. My wife was interested in sharing the blue corn chips with queso, but Embe had run out by 12:30 that afternoon. Boo! We shared the onion kettle chips with blue cheese dip instead. Just ok. We were really looking forward to the bread pudding for dessert. It consisted of an ice cream scoop sized ball of bread pudding with a heaping mound of whipped cream. I did not taste any rum sauce. I have had much better bread pudding. I would skip Embe the next time.

“Overpriced!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

A cup of soup and sandwich $15. The soup was good as well as the sandwich - but the sandwich was small - on a roll. For the price, I'll go somewhere else next time.

“Good Sandwiches”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Good sandwich and soup stop, with a beer on Main Street. Although the menu is somewhat limited, the food and recorded music that was playing create a good vibe. They could expand the menu a bit by offering more soup options.

“Ate at Embe for lunch”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

While in Galena we stopped with friends here for lunch. Got the pastrami, corned beef, horderadish mustard and cole slaw sandwich. Was very tasty and waitress was very good waiting on us. Homemade cream of mushroom with artichoke soup was very good. Also got the bread pudding for dessert was very good.

“Indulgent snack”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

For an indulgent snack to give you more energy for exploring Galena shops, stop at Embe for a luxurious bread pudding laced with rum sauce & piled high with whipped cream. You won't regret it!
