Café Winberie

Interesting and intriguing all in one, the options at Winberie's were rather unique. Their location in Buffalo Grove recently closed, so the only option is this location in Oak Park. It's tucked away in a corner, spot, and if you blink you might miss it from the outside, but inside it's much bigger. They did have regular burgers, but really their combinations of items were pretty exciting, Jamaican Pork, Shrimp Dijon,  London Broil. I honestly wasn't sure what to get, everything sounded interesting. They even stated that their soups were gluten free, which is really hard to find it seems.

They don't have a parking lot right there, there is public parking down the street, and metered street parking as well. It's quaint area to walk around and do some shopping or check out the Frank Lloyd Wright tours. 

They have a separate gluten free menu from the regular menu, that lists out the options. Like I mentioned there were a lot of great sounding options including the soup of the day! That day it was a Cauliflower Cheddar which sounded awesome for an option. Sadly my stomach was not as excited as I was to being eating out and was holding a bit of protest. The Jamaican Pork was amazing. It combined the perfect blend of sweet and spicy to help make the flavors intense and interesting. We had to get a creme brulee to try, I feel since this is usually the safe GF dessert option we should start rating places on their Creme Brulee's!

The menu over all had a great variety, with everything from appetizers to dessert options, and a wide variety of entrees. Next time I'm in the area for a tour I will be stopping by here again. Oak Park in general has some stellar Gluten Free Dining options so it always makes choosing so hard. I give them 4 dragonflies.
