Delicious, Delectable... Just Darn Good: Jane's is a rare gem. It's a tiny restaurant overlooking the Commons that serves high-end, high-quality food at fair prices.<br/><br/>Everyone I know who has eaten at Jane's has enjoyed their experience, even if it included waiting outside for a half an hour or more on a busy day. You should be prepared to wait, but it's worth it!<br/><br/>Jane's uses fresh, local ingredients whenever possible. They also put interesting spins on familiar dishes - one needn't look any further than their unique twist on a grilled cheese sandwich to realize how creative they are.<br/><br/>Brunch is to die for, you can't go wrong with lunch, and people sing the praises of the entrees. Dessert is yummy as well, and their wine list is small but effective, including some organic wines.<br/><br/>Do yourself a favour and get ye to Jane's soon. You won't regret it.
