    Airport restaurants usually serve captive audiences. So they often sell mediocre, overpriced food to people worried more about destinations than dinner.

    So it was satisfying to find quality, affordable food at Airmenities Cafe at Chicago Rockford International Airport.

    I visited Airmenities on Jan. 10 with fellow Register Star reporter Greg Stanley.
    I’d been here once before. Greg hadn’t and couldn’t find the cafe, which has no sign and is tucked behind an open glass door near the baggage carousel.

    But the visibility of Airmenities is likely to ascend soon when it expands service upstairs in the airport’s boarding gate area. Details are still being worked out. But if our lunch visit is an indicator, the food will be a hit with ticketed passengers.

    “Our overall philosophy is we want high quality ingredients, flavorful food at reasonable prices and quick service,” said restaurant owner Colene Vivian.
