This vintage cafe, which opened in 1976, is known in the community for its laid-back ambience, '70s-inspired fare (like quiche and crepes) and its ''Taste of Chicago'' award-winning chili. The chili is offered six ways; dig into the chili solo or try it over spaghetti with shredded Swiss and Cheddar and chopped onions. The restaurant serves over a dozen sweet and savory crepes; house favorites are crepes Florentine (spinach souffle topped with white sauce) and La Normandie crepes (spinach and bacon souffle with melted Swiss cheese and a white sauce). Entrees include choice like a Cajun chicken platter, fried perch dinner and fried shrimp. And after dinner? Desserts include strawberry crepes, carrot cake and bread pudding.
