FINALLY discovering one of my high school hangouts – Years ago, I graduated from a certain Jesuit high school not too far from this place. I always heard about this place from my classmates. But when I was ready to try this place for myself, unfortunately, I heard they shut their doors. Fast forward to the present, I heard that the place only closed temporarily and was open the whole time. So I finally found time to come by and "reconnect with my youth". On first attempt to find the place I actually missed it since the sign was behind a big tree. I walked in and found a small counterspace with about 2 booths and pictures of regulars around the walls, pretty much a diner seating 10 maybe some room in the back (I've yet to see any other rooms). Although they have several breakfast item that are primarily displayed (omelets are their claim to fame), the one sandwich EVERYONE talked about back then was the Loretta. Basically, it's either slices of ham, turkey, sausage patty, or bacon served on a warm sandwich roll, with mayo, celery salt, and diced tomato, onion, and green bell peppers. The order is served with a side of hash browns and a drink. I only remember having a version of this sandwich once before at my high school festival (only less grease). After taking that first bite, it as if this was "familiar" to me. But ironically, I still can't believe looking back the "legendary sandwich" everyone talked about back then could be made so easily. But that doesn't mean I'm gonna stop coming here and make my own. I know now what I've been missing those years ago. I hope that this place stays open for years to come for the future generations of fellow alumni of my high school

North Shore institution has been serving omelets and diner favorites for four decades. – In Short
Regulars are greeted by name at this Evanston favorite; walls sport a sizable collage of photos--if you grew up nearby, you're probably in one. Sandwiches are grilled in front of you on French loaves. The popular Loretta is made with ham or bacon, mozzarella, tomatoes, onions and green peppers. The hangover-curing Disaster is made with ground beef instead of ham. Other popular options include grilled cheese or one of the "world famous" omelets.
