The Low Down
Know Before You Go: Despite the "do-lunch" atmosphere and light fare, Jolane's pulls quite the dinner crowd. Reservations can stack up come weekends, especially if the weather is right.
Parking: Copious and free. The suburbs lick the city in that respect.
The Extras: Wine events take place regularly, like half price bottle night, discounted glasses and tastes and social tastings. Call for the schedule.
What to Drink: You'll be tempted by the wine selection--and rightly so as there is a sizable selection--but if it's the AM and you can't justify a full glass, opt for a mimosa, or better yet, a flute of bubbly-spiked pear juice.
Where to Sit: Any of the cushy booths will do just fine, but if it's nice out think about the patio. It's quite pleasant despite the interstate that runs behind the store.
