Took our dog there a year ago because we had a last minute emergency. Place did not smell clean and the staff was very disorganized. They claimed they couldn't find our dog's bed, and after some coaxing went back to look for it and found it. There are better places to board your dog in Chicago.
Goldy's flower shop is a homey feeling place with decent prices and personalized service. I've walked in on many occasions and given her a price range and the flowers I wanted to include. She whipped up a great bouquet and at exactly the price I asked for. She will also create an arrangement with little guidance that lasts for a long time after the flowers are delivered.
Great menu of traditional Ethiopian food, along with a full array of African beers are available. This restaurant usually has a live jazz band playing quietly so as not to disturb the general ambiance of the restaurant. Great food, service and a fun dining atmosphere.
Personable staff and reliable service provided at this cleaners. They have fairly short turnaround times if desired and can accommodate a large amount of clothes at once. I've turned in 15-20 shirts and asked for a 2 day turnaround, with no problems.
Meg Vincent's State Farm office is conveniently located in Lincoln park. When our condo building's basement caught fire over a weekend, we called the general State Farm phone number to get information. Meg called us first thing on Monday morning to check in with us and make sure everything was OK. Great personal and professional service!
This wine/beverage/tobacco store is one of the finest in the Chicago area. Sign up for a Binny's card and receive a percentage back on purchases you make. Great wine selection, including anything from very expensive to very cheap. Also has a humidor and cigar accessories and liquor section.
This corner diner is family owned and serves great breakfast! The owners (husband and wife) will greet you promptly when you walk in and will make sure you have everything you need when you're seated. Perfect place for a Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast after a long night out.
This dry cleaner provides consistent, fast service. Clothes are usually ready in 2 business days and can be done in shorter time if necessary. No broken buttons, and they also perform alterations.
This newer pub in Lakeview has a nice outdoor terrace that's great to sit in during the summer months for a beer or a bite to eat. The menu includes traditional Irish fare as well as a decent beer/whiskey list. A nice place to stop for a bite to eat or for a few drinks.
This family run chain of markets is your place to shop for fresh produce, meats, breads and cheeses. Authentic Middle Eastern, Italian and Greek dips are also available for purchase.
