I came here looking for school uniforms, and while I found variety, I thought the prices were expensive. I did end up getting my daughter's letter jacket for high school here, but they were more expensive than another business for sewing on patches. It also took them much longer.
County Clare is a lovely place for dinner with great decor. The stained glass is beautiful. The restaurant is small but not cramped. The food is well prepared with attractive presentation. My husband enjoyed the salmon and I the Irish Mist chicken. The dumpling appetizer is wonderful. Servings were generous so we didn't have dessert. County Clare is a nice place to begin an evening out in downtown.
I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Ambassador, and I was so impressed. The staff were outstandidng, from the doorman to the concierge. The Art Deco atmosphere is exceptional, throughout the hotel. The rooms were very comfortable. With a few more amenities, this would be a world class hotel.
Bay View threadworks has done the shirts for our robotics club for the past two years. They do both screened work and embroidery, as well as providing letter jackets for Thomas More high school. Their prices are competitive and they have a relatively short turn around time.
I like this restaurant to meet with friends for lunch. It is rarely crowded for lunch, and the waitress is GREAT. We were in there twice in five months, and the second time the waitress remembered us. Not only that, she remembered that a friend of mine was allergic to onions without being reminded. The burgers are very good, served with fries, and prices are reasonable.
I like coming our here in the winter to ride because of the beauty of the area. The guides are great, and riding in winter you avoid the crowds. The horses are well cared for and the tack is well maintained.
We come here whenever we are in the area, and sometimes make a special trip from Milwaukee just for the ice cream. They have great old fashioned sundaes like the tin roof, turtle, and grasshopper as well as old fashioned sodas and phosphates. When we have a rainy day at girl scout camp we come here to give the girls a special treat. They have a nice assortment of "penny candy" too, and sell the hard to find green river soda in cans.
Latimer House restaurant is located in an old Victorian house and has beautiful decor. The owners did not overlook a single detail in preparing to open their doors years ago. We have been coming here for years, and have seen some time honored menu items and some new entrees. The food is always very good. The baked Brie appetizer is my favorite. If you order the salmon steak, beware of bones - this is a salmon steak, not a fillet, so you may encounter one. The owners can be seen almost nightly, and they have special events like a murder mystery dinner.
I could spend hours here, and sometimes I do. Many dealers have booths set up here with a wide variety of antiques and 'not so antiques'. They can't all be antiques because I played with some of them as a child. Prices vary depending on the vendor, and you can find everything from furniture to vintage clothing, toys to glassware, jewelry to books. It's a great place to spend a few hours on a rainy day, and maybe find a treasure or long forgotten memory.
Allison Wonderland has traditional quality toys like Corolle dolls, puzzles, and erector sets. It reminds me of an old fashioned toy store - one without all the electronic games you see today. It's a great place to come and browse and feel nostalgic for the innocence of childhood as well as to buy a special gift for a child.
