A Girly Day Out in Glen Ellyn
Glen Ellyn: Where to eat
Lunch spots prove as eclectic as the shops. Mykha's Restaurant dishes the best deal, a delicious $10 Vietnamese buffet of delicate egg rolls, noodles, soup, salads and hibiscus tea.
At contemporary Honey, patrons nosh on farm-to-table breakfasts, salads, sandwiches and desserts. Try the grilled tilapia sandwich served on artisanal bread and paired with grilled romaine salad, or the standout veggie burger, or the amazing homemade mac 'n' cheese. For the last bite, the vanilla bean cupcake comes topped with buttercream goodness, but consider rounding the corner to see if Dessertz is open. If so, you'll find sugar cookies in seasonal shapes (including shamrocks) and bite-size cheesecakes perfect for taking home.
