Who doesn’t love the delicious, wonderful world of tasty treats? If you happen to be one of these people that don’t, then you might just have a change of mind. There’s a new bakery in town and it’s called Green Prairie, located at the intersection of Route 45 and Evergreen in Vernon Hills. Once someone steps into this magical store, they feel like they just stepped into paradise. Along the back wall are pastries of all sorts, waiting for someone to pick them up and eat them. It doesn’t take long for this to happen though! Every time one goes to the bakery, they simply want to eat everything they see. There are brownies, danishes, muffins, cookies, cinnamon swirls, warm dough filled with eggs and sausage, and fruit pastries. The Green Prairie allows people to come in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and a second lunch need be! If you like the idea of varying your meals, you can get omelets, sandwiches, and fruit, too. Coffee and hot chocolate can be enjoyed all day long as well! There are even sodas available in old fashioned glass bottles. I think it is safe to say that anyone would want to eat the entire store if they could!
