Not much to look at outside nor inside. Food was great! I had the Chicken wrap with fries and hubby had the AUCE Fish Fry-both were fresh, hot and very tasty. We will absolutely come back.

Whisk Bakery and Coffee Shop

Reviewed By dmc1956 - Algonquin, Illinois

Great place to have a bakery treat and a cup of coffee. The smells are wonderful and bakery offers a variety of baked goods from cup cakes to cakes. They even have my favorite, dipped chocolate pretzels. We tried 2 pastries and were convinced to take some baked goods home. Bottom line is they offer reasonably priced, exceptional quality baked goods along with service with a smile.

Tacos El Norte

Reviewed By tedkirby - Lexington, Massachusetts

Went here on a Saturday night. Place was crowded but there were still plenty of empty tables so I got seated right away. Got the Fajita burrito, it was delicious! Like one of the best burritos I've ever had. Chips it came with were good too. The margarita was OK, but was a big size for the price which was good.

Service, it started out fine. However when I had finished half my burrito and all of my margarita, they only asked if I wanted a box for burrito, not if I wanted another drink, which I did. Well, if they wanted me to leave and not give them more money, then I was happy to oblige them.

Middleton's on Main

Reviewed By sellbuy1234567 - near Chicago, IL

Our group of three arrived around noon for a Friday lunch, and parked in back of the restaurant, since on-street parking in front was full. People in those cars must have been visiting other shops, since the restaurant itself did not have many clients. We were seated right away, and a waiter promptly took our drink and food orders. Their beer selection is good.

It took quite a while for our food to come, bur after it did, our waiter ignored our table, never returning to ask if we needed anything else, or how everything was. At a minimum, we would have appreciated refills on our beverages and water glasses.

I had ordered the fish tacos (which the menu said would be $14, but I got charged $15.) They were served with a tasty side of spanish rice. Unfortunately, the flavor of the taco "contents" were overwhelmed by an outer layer of two soft corn shells, so I ended up only eating one shell of each taco.

The other people at the table ordered a Turkey burger with a side of sweet potato fries, and a reuben sandwich with a side of sweet potato fries. The guy with the Turkey burger said it was delicious, and really liked the onion straws that came on top, but he mentioned that the sweet potato fries were lukewarm and not very good. The girl who order the reuben concurred, saying her sweet potato fries were limp/soggy, and must have been sitting around for awhile before they were served. The corned beef in her sandwich was also more greasy than she's had in other restaurants. Again, because the waiter never came back to our table after the food was served, until he brought the check, there was no opportunity to get replacement fries or anything else. It's not a restaurant we're apt to return to.

After a wonderful dinner at Strawberry Moon down the block we walked over to Dairy Queen for desert and had a great happy smiling server, she helped make the evening special with her personality. The deserts at Dairy Queen are always good, that's why we go there, but to have a wonderful server makes it special. I'm sorry I don't remember her name, but we travel a lot and meet lots of people.

This is a nice cafe. Don't be surprised by the small barista area. There is a large and comfortable seating area down the hall. The bakery goods are fantastic, but they can be out of many items later in the day. Coffee is good and the staff is friendly. If you're tired of chain-store coffee, give them a try. You'll enjoy your visit.
