We loved the whole breakfast menu, which we made our way through during our trip. Our favourites were the chocolate oatmeal and the pesto bowl. The fresh pressed juices were fantastic as well. And yay for almond milk!

This place was awesome! I've been vegan for 2 years now and when I travel with my family it's always hard to find a place good for me and good for them since we don't have the same dietary needs. This place was great because it offers tasty food that even my 8 year old sister, who's a really picky... More

My friends and I were seeking a healthy lunch option near our hotel and this looked to fit the bill. I had the vegan salad, another had he buffalo salad, another had the avocado chicken wrap. I also had vegetarian chili. The chili was tasty. Every other item we ordered was a disappointment. My vegan salad had a tasteless chia... More

We were in Chicago for a convention and wanted a quick and nutritious breakfast. We got both at The Protein Bar on Wabash. We ordered Protein Scramble with spinach, tomatoes, and spicy choloulu sauce. It was delicious. We did not intially see the coffee, so got some of their bottled juice combinations. They were good but very pricey ($6.99), more... More

Lots of healthy choices for breakfast, although half the items in our order were messed up or incomplete. Oatmeal was only lukewarm. Once we notified the staff of some issues, they did fix it to the best of their ability.

Fast. Delicious all 5 meals. Proportions not gimoungous. I love the quinoa,HMO free protein, black beans , veggies and fresh ingredients in my burrito. Seating is tight but opens up fast. In your face McDonalds. This is the new model that will eat your lunch. Packed but brisk line. These are everywhere downtown. Texas is callin y'all down south.

I visit this place when visiting Chicago for work. it's the perfect place for truly healthy food on the go. They're doing things right, this isn't pseudo-health food. I really hope that this brand expands to some other states. I would love to have one in St. Louis. This is the ideal spot for the health-minded that are on the... More
