CULINARY NOTES

Lulu's Electric Cafe, an independent coffeehouse located on

the corner of 86th Street and Ditch Road for 14 years, recently

moved a few blocks west, changing its name and expanding its menu in the

process. LuLu's Coffee + Bakehouse,

stationed at 2292 W. 86th St., at the intersection of 86th

Street and Township Line Road, has a few more drinks and dishes to offer than

its predecessor, including Italian sodas, loose leaf teas, a gluten-free quiche

and a spicy roast beef sandwich. Plus, the new location is a bit more green, with LED lighting and reclaimed construction

materials. More info at luluscoffeeandbakehouse.com, or call

879-1995.
