Lawn Care Recommendations?

I'm looking to replace my lawn care service because of poor communication issues. Does anyone have one they recommend?

Is Mia's at Berteau and Central closed?

I passed by a few days ago and saw stools up on the counter at a time when it seemed like they should be open. Does anyone know if they are open for business these days? It seemed like they were struggling the last few times we went.

  • Good to know it's a seasonal closing and not closed for good. I find it hard to believe an ice cream shop wouldn't do decent business across from a park. I just wish they had frozen yogurt (Josi's or Pinkberry style). I'd go there far more often. I don't like ice cream.

    They have awesome sandwiches in addition to their gelato and ice cream, chris.

Best Donuts in the area, maybe in the city

This donut shop is south of Portage Park but worth the 7 minute trip. The place is called Somethin' Sweet and it's on Fullerton just east of Laramie on the north side of the street. The donuts are amazing. Try the red velvet buttermilk for a real treat. Also, the maple bacon donut is lovely. The best thing is...wait for it....they deliver. For $2.50 you can order however many reasonably priced donuts as you'd like and they'll deliver to your...

This donut shop is south of Portage Park but worth the 7 minute trip. The place is called Somethin' Sweet and it's on Fullerton just east of Laramie on the north side of the street. The donuts are amazing. Try the red velvet buttermilk for a real treat. Also, the maple bacon donut is lovely. The best thing is...wait for it....they deliver. For $2.50 you can order however many reasonably priced donuts as you'd like and they'll deliver to your door. Their sister store Kim Long, next door, has great Chinese food and again for $2.50 they'll deliver you tasty Chinese food and donuts. The owners are so nice and obviously like what they do. One of the best things is that they have a good variety even near closing time, 10pm.
Never thought I'd go on about donuts like this but this is a real find!!! And so unique. I don't take advantage of delivery so that I can control my intake, but I did order some Chinese food and a donut recently. It was delicious.
Address is 5112 W. Fullerton. Phone 773.237.7588.

  • I have to put a plug in for Earl's BBQ. They make homemade donuts that are killer. They also offer an ice cream sandwich made with donuts. So good.

  • I had their maple bacon doughnut at Somethin' Sweet, and yeah it was pretty good.
