UD - Johnny Casserole Now Has a Café

JOHNNY ON THE SPOT

Johnny Casserole Now Has a Café

Johnny Casserole revolutionized the world of casserole delivery. Mainly by starting a casserole delivery service. Now that they have a café, you can stop in for espresso and egg strata in the morning, or take a tuna-noodle casserole home for dinner. It’s just like Mom used to pick up.

Now open, Johnny Casserole, 4019 N Damen Ave, 773-857-2665

FIRE & ICE CREAM
