OMG the milkshakes

We got a cab to this place as it's a little off the beaten path. It was well worth it. The food is to die for. This is completely veggie, and most things can be made vegan too. We had the nachos (delicious) followed by the Rueben sandwich and I had mushroom. Everything tasted fantastic. The... read more

I traveled from Indiana on my birthday for lunch. First trip there. Food was excellent, service was great. Food came out quite and everyone was super nice. Wish I lived closer. Anyone who thinks they don't like vegan food should go there. Poutine, waffle fries with gravy, cheese, and jalapeno was awesome. Vanilla chai shake fabulous. Gyro was great too!

I actually want to give this place a 4.5. But since I can't, I'm giving it a 4. I ordered a vegan BLT at the place and it really lived up to the high expectations that my carnivorous friends had led me to have for such a dish. I felt really nice that I was able to eat something that... More

I was walking around my neighborhood And found this place. I decide to stop and have something to eat. I wasn't expecting much but just a regular breakfast. I was surprised at all the healthy choices they had. I actually left happier then when I waked in the place. I enjoy my meal very much. If your in the area... More

Good healthy food. Not the best but a good alternative to try some items I would not make at home due to complexity of the recipes or don't want to make a whole meal of something I may not like.

Wonderful establishment! I wish I could have tried a little of everything. Fast and friendly service. So great that I will make another trip before I leave town. Get a shake, trust me.

Everything was so rich, delicious, and beautifully presented. We loved our seitan Reuben and chicken sandwiches (try with ranch and wing sauce on the side!). The caramel chocolate torte was incredible. Even the side salad included fresh, flavorful vegetables with obvious attention to preparation and presentation. I preferred the mac and teese with a little buffalo wing sauce and black... More

Love this place! Always delicious with plenty of options. Recommend the Chili Relleno and the caramel crunch cake was crazy good! Always delightful service, plenty of seating at the Logan Square location.

Ok, a disclaimer, I'm not a vegetarian But i do like dishes without meat / fish in them. But i was a bit disappointed with this place, since the dishes just seemed to be meat dishes that replace the meet with less tasty alternatives. The tripadvisor ranking seems a bit over the top to me... But Like I said, I'm... More

The Ruben is a classic, but they do a wonderful array of vegetarian comfort foods that are great! Both locations seem to be great too
