Good food, can't decide if it's trying to be a bistro or a bar or both. Wings were good, salmon cooked well, pastry was ok.

Was in town for business & stopped for a late lunch. Interesting menu... had the Austrian Goulash which was really good. Absolutely loved the Earl Grey loose leaf tea which was served in a cute teapot. Nice touch! Nice selection of desserts... liked the macaroon with chocolate.... wish I had bought several more! Sat at a booth inside which had... More

Nice place to have breakfast or lunch. We have gone several times for yummy well prepared food at reasonable prices. We have had to wait a few minutes but it was worth the wait.

I had the Branzino which was lightly pan fried perfectly. Two of the others had steak entrée's and were both very happy. They have two dining rooms. We were in the first one... More

We love to search Trip Advisor & look for recommendations. Jolane's is fabulous! The coffee & tea are European & it was a great step up from our normal drive thru coffee & tea. One of the previous reviewers suggested the Quiche. I loved it. It was very fluffy & tasty. I also had the pear & Brie sandwich. It... More

Jolane's provides upscale ambience and meal selections to match. The quiche and soup or salad "pairings" are wonderful, and even a basic turkey and avocado sandwich will please you. We shared the wonder Mozart Torte but saw many other desert delights. Enjoy!

This is a wonderful restaurant for adults. They do have hamburgers but the ambiance is geared towards adults that want to enjoy a Europe type meal. Wonderful coffees, desserts and decent cocktails as well. The Hungarian beef and spatzle is a favorite. The back room is less formal and a great place for a bridal shower or such .

This was our first visit to Jolane's, and it certainly won't be the last. We visit the area once a year and meet up with friends, and this was an ideal venue for a relaxed and informal occasion, with very good food and service. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful, and the only down side (which is totally out of... More

We stumbled across this gem while visiting the studio 41 kitchen remodeling center. Also a good place to stop in. Ask for Ralph. Anyways, the beet salad was delicious and 4 of us shared it as an appetizer. 3 of us are Gluten free. So while they don't have a Gluten free menu, there a plenty of items you can... More
