    I was wondering about the For Sale sign on that lot when I drove past it recently.

    Dunno. Just know the property is for sale and that project isn't being built there . . . and you won't be chowing on any gluten-free waffles with organic blueberries in GE anytime soon.

    So sad... GE can really use a good breakfast spot.

    Without the Fannie May parcel, that land is worthless. They're going to take a bath on it.

    No reply at all here. What did happen to Buttermilk? There is one in Geneva. Did they go there instead?

    This place was going to be called Buttermilk and Honey. The one in Geneva isn't the same owner. They bought the building, knocked it down, and then inexplicably determined that the cost to build what they wanted was going to be roughly double what they had thought. And that unlovable lot went back on the market. One of the more baffling chapters in Glen Ellyn restaurant history.

    We are now left with an empty lot void of the building that should have been Alter Brewing Company, now very successfully operating in Downers Grove, but that is another story. In order to develop that lot, my guess is you'd need to buy Fannie May as well.

    Yep to all of that.

    An amazing Glen Ellyn development blunder.
