Bowling Alley

“Bowling, Bocce ball courts, Bar, and amazing restaurant! This place is super fun and one of the best restaurants in Northbrook. Just call before you go to make a reservation. They tend to book up.”

Cafe
“The best breakfast/brunch in the northshore! Egg Harbor is a Chicago-based chain. Expect to pay $10+ per person - which is pretty pricey for breakfast, but it's worth the splurge. Menu changes with the season. Banana Bread French toast is my favorite and on Saturday mornings they usually have someone making balloon animals for kids. Wait times can be high, so come early. Free coffee while you wait. For lunch, try the Door County Chicken Salad.”

Movie Theatre
“If you don't need to eat a full meal and lay down on a sleeper sofa while watching a movie, my preference is the ArcLight in Glenview. Reserved seating, popcorn, candy and a full bar. ”
