Great place to eat. Affordable prices. Delicious soups, and great selection of sweet & savory crepes. Great teas.

My recent dinner with friends was truly delicious. We shared both the vegetarian and lamb tagines (I was disappointed that they did not have the tilapia tagine that night). The mix of spices and veggies in the vegetarian dish was mouthwatering. We ended with a sweet crepe of dark chocolate, banana and coconut. Yum! It's BYO, so I highly recommend... More

My youngest son was lamenting the passing of La Creperie. I took him by Icosium, and he leaped at the chance to try their crepes / galettes. Except that, once we were seated and viewing the menu, my son decided that the lamb chop cous-cous sounded too good to ignore. And I wanted to try the merguez Algerian lamb sausage.... More

Stopped in mid-afternoon for a snack and was not disappointed. Lots of dessert crepes to pick from - all three of us chose a different one and we each loved our. I had the Crepe Labella - belgium chocolate, bananas, coconut and almonds.

I ordered a veggie crepe filled with avocado, carmelized onion, tomato, roasted peppers, cilantro, garlic. The veggie soup was absolutely delicious. Algerian recipes and spices - didn't know what to expect, but it was amazing. Definitely worth the drive from the more central Chicago locations - easier to find street parking! The sweet crepe even had real coconut chopped up!

I love Middle Eastern spices, but couldn't find any in my crepe! The server was pleasant and we enjoyed a quiet lunch, but a tad disappointed in this recommendation from another foodie.

Although this is known as a crepes restaurant, we went for dinner and had a delicious meal of merquez sausages and chicken tagine, all very fresh and authentic. The owner/server kindly advised us to order just one appetizer and one main since that would be enough for two people, and it certainly was. The room is filled with handsome Algerian... More

Icosium Kafe has moved to a new larger location on Clark Street in Lincoln Park close to Fullerton. The restaurant has a lot of Algerian, Moroccan ambiance complete with a pseud tent covered in Algerian carpets and very romantic. The crepes range from wonderful filling creative concoctions where one is absolutely plenty for a dinner. Each costs about $9 without... More
