All honesty before I went there with my mom I thought it would be kinda not my thing but truthfully I liked it and would love to go there again. The desserts aren't my thing there but it was not all that bad truthfully.

It's a vegetarian's dream. We used to live in Chicago and when we had to go back we made sure to stop at Blind Faith. It didn't disappoint. Portions are generous and the food is incredibly tasty. We have been customers for too many years to count. We carried out some baked goods to take back to our hotel room... More

This is the real deal. Full vegetarian and some vegan. If you are lucky you will meet the original hippie owner, but the business has stayed current and not dated at all. Many non-vegetarians enjoy too! If you are in warm weather have seating outside along the sidewalk too. Got to love Blind Faith.

While I am not a vegetarian I have numerous friends who are. I personally find most vegetarian meals not tasty ... NOT SO at Blind Faith Cafe! I always find lots to eat here that is magnificent!

Clean, spacious restaurant with great light and a homey, welcoming vibe. I've been a Blind Faith customer for several years --- hard not to be with a name like that --- and just went back after being away a while. I was pleasantly surprised at the consistency, the freshness of the food, and the updated menu. We were seated quickly... More

This place was a great brunch experience. My companion ordered eggs benedict or some version of it, and the plate was lovely. I had enchiladas that were tasty, cheesy and accompanied by a generous amount of organic rice, delicious by itself with nothing on it. The black beans were not overly spiced. I would say their Mexican inspired dishes are... More

Blind Faith is known thruout Chicagoland for its great vegan meals and glutenfree options. But much more than that it is a place where friends gather in a peaceful setting for a bratiful meal.The staff is very kind and will do anything for you.

There were 8 in our party, so they put us in an extra room that normally seats a dozen. Fresh flowers on the table, beautiful paintings, the sunlight pouring in.....and the food was scrumptious! It was hard to choose what to eat, but between all of us there were pancakes and omelettes and various brunchy items. We even got pastries... More

This is truly a gourmet vegetarian restaurant -- innovative, tasty food for people who will eat dairy as well as strict vegans. They also have gluten-free options. Elegant decor (our hosts said the restaurant "grew up with the customers"), professional service, and wonderful food. Loved the avocado salad,sweet potato fries, potstickers, onion gruyere tart, and enchiladas verdes -- but I... More

I frequently visit the Blind Faith Cafe on business trips to Chicago & find consistently good, wholesome vegetarian food served in a welcoming, clean & tidy surrounding by helpful, informative & friendly staff. Tasty enough for my non vegetarian husband too! Delicious desserts if you have room for them after your meal. Whether you choose to dine inside or outside... More
