Good Place for Meat Eaters and Vegetarians

Had a fantastic breakfast here. Everything comes in LARGE portions. If you order pancakes, expect to take some home! Huge order but delicious. The combos were huge also. For vegetarians, the menu can be adapted to vegan requests. Service was very friendly and laid back. Been here for dinner... read more

This place is hard not to love. My husband (a lover of as much meat at possible), and myself (give me all he veggies!) we're both very happy with this place! Vegan German chocolate cake to die for and a whipped cream latte. We're in town visiting and a friend recommended this place, very happy

This restaurant offers a nice break away from the many sports themed bars in Wrigleyville, both in style and vibe. There's also a big variety of vegan and vegetarian options, which was the reason a friend took us there. Breakfast is served all day. The portions are huge and delicious, service was good and prices were reasonable. I will totally... More

After the baseball game we did not want to wait for the long lines at the train station so we went looking for a restaurant and stumble upon PMU! Very nice vegan menu and also a regular menu! I would highly recommend this place if you are in the area!

Everything here is delicious. Sometimes the service is a bit slow, but it is completely made up for with the INCREDIBLE food they have for decent prices. This is what I recommend to all of my friends who are coming to Chicago.

We went with a group of friends and most are not vegans or vegetarians. We were so surprised at the options on their menu. I got a vegan mac and cheese that rivals most "regular" mac and cheeses I've had. I also got some buffalo tofu that was amazing. My friend got a veggie burger and fries and their fries... More

In the shadow of Wrigley Field and the El is a most wonderful breakfast and lunch restaurant. The decor is funky and eclectic, and you feel like you're in an old time diner, but with a totally contemporary flair. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and patient explaining the menu. The omelettes were light and fluffy. The combination egg combinations were... More

This place was amazing! The drinks were strong and creative as well as the menu options. Vegan, dairy free, gluten free, you name it they can cater to your needs. Quirky decor and great hip servers and waitresses. A nice alternative to the fried foods and hot dog variety of the baseball crowd while on the Wrigley strip.

All the reviews are right -- it's eclectic, artsy, a tiny but well-known neighborhood gem, and the food is everything you'd want it to be. Breakfasts are huge and delicious, and there's plenty to see while you're eating. It may have been a 24-hour place at some point, which is how I heard of it, but they aren't now. In... More

I saw pictures of the Pick Me Up Cafe online and thought the decor looked really cool. My boyfriend had actually been there before, so he took me there one date night. I was expecting a cool atmosphere and standard diner food, but the food was actually delicious! We both had wraps--I had the ranch chicken and him the buffalo... More
