I live on the far north side of Chicago and this is by far my fav spot in town to travel to to get the most satisfying meal. Of course in Chicago you will find a plentiful array of Vegan choices but this place is so laid back, food is served with a flare and it comes out looking like... More

If you like to go veg, this is one of Chicago's best. If you are a meater, you will probably be surprised how much you like the food anyway.

We ordered far too much as the portions are massive!! Nachos and wings to start, the wings were amazing. Then fish tacos and country style steak for main course. And milkshakes. It was all amazing but you dont need a starter. I dream of veggie places in the UK this good!

This is a go-to gathering place for the veggie minded. But even if you like meat, the dishes are tasty and filling. The original Halsted location is cozy (i.e. small), and you may have to wait a while to get a table, but that's true of most good restaurants in Chicago. But what this place lacks in space, it makes... More

If you were a meat eater and turned vegetarian then you surely miss having a reuben sandwich - never fear, have one here - it was amazing!!! The deserts looked equally amazing but we were too full to try one. We went on a Saturday evening and had to wait 30 min for a table. It was worth the wait.... More

We came here for brunch. We didn't have to reserve a table and we were quickly seated. The waiter was great at giving tips on the menu. The Carrot Cake shake is FANTASTIC, I couldn't finish it because I was too full, but I'm happy I went for it. I'm not vegetarian but I found a recommendation on a vegan... More

Everything I try at this place is just amazing! The burgers are so filling. The mac and cheese is yum. The best 'chicken' Cesar salad I have ever tasted - I could not believe how good that vegan chicken was - just amazing! And the shakes.... oh my the shakes! Let's just say I HIGHLY recommend the chocolate peanut butter... More

I'm not vegan or vegetarian so a little concerned. Shakes were great. Tried 3 flavors. Meal was wonderful. Definitely would eat here again. Only complaint would be it was cramped with 5 people.

I love coming here! I always start with a chocolate shake and usually try one of their specials. Brunch is super yummy, I highly recommend it. Even my non - vegetarian friends like coming here.
