Elmer's Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant

Quote:
A rare trip to the mall for me brought me to J.C. Penney's for my uncle's birthday gift. After getting his gift, I hunted down my friend Leslie, who is the seamstress at Penney's, and she said to wait for her, and we could go to lunch.Where to go? was the question both of us had as we decided where to go. After Leslie and I went to the nearby assisted living facility to get some sewing projects from some of the residents, Leslie suggested Elmer's on Fairview Avenue. "Why not.", I said because I am not really familiar with some of the eateries around the mall.Leslie and I arrived at Elmer's after the lunch rush, and we were seated almost immediately. Our waitress was at ...Read More

Romio's Pizza and Pasta

Restaurant

I had to do some final Christmas shopping near the mall, and I had been wanting to try Romio's since June when they provided most of the food for the Greek Food Festival at the Greek Orthodox Church. Since Dad had given me my Christmas money early, I thought I needed to treat myself to a nice lunch before tackling the crowds at Sport's Authority and Barnes and Noble. Romio's is located near the Boise Towne Square Mall and Target, and on the Monday before Christmas, the place was booming with shoppers and people on their lunch breaks. I was greeted warmly by one of the waitresses, and she asked if I wanted to sit at the bar since I was alone. I said that was fine since I could read the ...Read More

At the Home Depot Christmas Party, I had won a couple of movie passes to the Edwards 21 Movie Theater in Boise. So Mom and I decided to catch a movie on one of our days off together, and since we had a little time and were hungry, we decided to look for a bite to eat before going to the movies. The Edwards' Cinema is located on Overland Road in Boise and also houses several restaurants and shops for people to shop and browze around before and after the movies. Mom and I decided to eat at Yen Ching, a Chinese Restaurant that serves Northern Chinese food at a good price. It wasn't very busy in Yen Ching, and Mom and I found seats without trouble. You ha...Read More

Mom and I like exploring the wineries in the Treasure Valley every year. We have some favorites along with discovering new wineries, and we decided this year to go to the Winery at Eagle Knoll in Eagle, Idaho to see what it had to offer. On a damp and chilly September Monday, Mom and I arrived at the Winery to check it out. Upon going inside, we were greeted by the Retail Manager, Denise, who went back to a meeting in the back of the winery. No one was at the bar and sampling station, so Mom and I explored the small winery on our own. The Winery at Eagle Knoll offers several white and red wines and an inexpensive Blush wine that was the cheapest thing availab...Read More

St. Chapelle Winery is one of our favorite Idaho wineries. Mom and I have visited here on a yearly basis since 2003, and I even wrote about it in my journal Three Hags and A Baby Go Wining in Idaho journal three years ago. I consider St. Chapelle one of my favorite places in Idaho because of its location on a hilltop in Caldwell, Idaho that overlooks the Treasure Valley. St. Chapelle has never ceases to have the best wines in Idaho. Every year, they come out with great wines that have turned this beer lover into a wine lover. They are inexpensive, but don't taste cheap. After a disappointing visit to one winery, Mom and I made our way to St. Chapelle. We passed ...Read More
