Near Wrigley Field, open nearly all nite. Very laid back and relaxed, food is really very good. Vegan desserts too. Younger crowd mostly artsy.

Read good reviews on trip advisor so decided to check it out. Was a little worried when we entered cause we were the only customers at the time. Glad we gave it a shot. The meals were of generous proportions. Both my wife and I had the Kahlua pancakes. Excellent sums it up.

Stopped in after a Cubs game. Staff were all friendly, good coffee and delicious homemade pies! Really cool atmosphere, and it's worth checking out!

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 also and as breakfast, very delicious!

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
