A few more days on my #ketochallenge to go out of my comfort zone when eating out and ordering things I wouldn’t usually consider. Yesterday we stopped in #Libertyville #Illinois for breakfast @towneesquarerestaurant. It was a-mazing!! I ordered the eggs florentine. It‘s a base of spinach and broccoli (rather than potatoes), with bacon, poached eggs & swiss cheese. We also got to taste the house-made whole milk greek yoghurt that has no sugar or sweetener 👏🏻 And you can grab some to take home 🏡! Service is great and the family reported that their pancakes, granola and eggs benedict were fresh and tasty too. Bonus is that Libertyville has an adorable downtown area. Great to stroll & explore. #ketoeatingout #ketofoodie #ketomeals #keto #ketoillinois #ketochicago #chicagoketo #ketochicagoland #libertyvilleillinois #foodchicago #chicagofoodie #chicagofood #eggsflorentine #ketobreakfast #ketobrunch #ketoeggs #ketoideas #glutenfree #lowcarb #ketotravel
Delightfully delectable would be a way to phrase nearly 35-year-old breakfast and lunch staple on MainStreet Libertyville. Townee’s got flapjacks for days. The “home of the double egg order,” is your classic, cozy and comfy diner. Besides the buttermilk flavor, Townee Square also serves chocolate chip, rainbow (with M&Ms), and of course, a Mickey Mouse pancake. To get your full taste of autumn, Townee also serves some mean pumpkin silver dollars. Don’t forget to include bananas, strawberries, blueberries, pecans or walnuts if necessary. Peruse the rest of the menu for an exceptional amount of treats. The Townee Square Restaurant will temporarily close its DINE-IN service March 16-30. Need some good news? They will continue to provide CATERING and CARRY-OUT service in that time!
The Grayslake martini and wine bar creates clever libation concoctions but doesn’t skimp on the suds. The Vine offers an array of items and specializes in tapas.

Wildberry’s menu features blueberries in a glaze, strawberries in a glaze, gluten-free honeycakes, their staple flavor wildberry, fig and walnut grain, their signature berry bliss, banana cream pie and a whole bunch more.
