The ambiance in this older building makes for a neat setting, and it's nice to be off the beaten path just a bit. The quiche of the day (a butternut squash version) was wonderful, and my husband enjoyed his omelette and bloody Mary. We had...More

We appreciate your review! Granted, a building that is 118 years old can be a bit chilly with the door opening and closing so many times. We do the best we can to try to adjust the temps when and where we can. Thank you...More

Across the foot bridge by Grant Park, nice view of downtown and the mansions on the bluff. We all went with the nice chicken salad sandwich.

Great and unique dining establishment by the train tracks in Galena, IL Many great combinations to chose from and good service even when there is a crowd. The only drawback can be the dining hours so check it out early in the day!
