Take your sweet tooth to Lavendar Cafe and Java Bar for a breakfast of banana bread French toast or a cocoa-panache waffle topped with fresh strawberries. Located in the quaint historic district of East Dundee, the busy cafe also offers wraps, panini and quiche for breakfast and an ambitious lunch and dinner menu of sandwiches, salads and pizza. European trained chef/co-owner Klaudia Crawford serves up cafe originals like a lusty Cuban pork sandwich and a juicy turkey burger crowned with Ancho chile mayo. Her Czech roots materialize in the pastry case, which teems with moist carrot cake and Napoleon slices, buttery thumbprint and snowball cookies and scones in a half-dozen flavors. The java arrives by way of Huntley-based Chicago Coffee Roastery, but since co-owner Gayle George is a big tea fan, so you'll also find more than 30 different loose teas. Theis sunny bi-level cafe also sells Door County relishes and jams, gelato during hte warmer months and a bountiful Sunday brunch.
