Great food, but we felt a bit rushed.
This was a lunch and it wasn't crowded so I was surprised that we felt rushed!

Symphony Café is in Evanston. Parking is nearby. The service was very good and the butternut squash ravioli was good .

We love Symphony's for breakfast -- Chilaquiles, Greek omelette, and the yogurt parfait are some of our go to menu items. Great atmosphere and a neighborhood favorite.
