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

A problem any vegetarian, vegan, or simply health conscious persons faces is how to avoid eating junk and fluff at restaurants? Even veggie dishes at Asian restaurants can be soaked with bad oils. However, Blind Faith has a whole menu of healthy foods that are incredibly tasty. Carnivores can enjoy their menu as much as vegans. Blind Faith has mastered... More

It was nice to see a somewhat upscale vegetarian restaurant. Great food, great location, service impeccable! We were a party of four, one strictly vegetarian. Prior to entering the restaurant, there was the usual "I don't want to eat cardboard" from my teen age son. Since it was my oldest son's turn to choose, we went in and everyone was... More

I are at Blind Faith 10 years ago. When I had business in north Chicago I chose a hotel in Evanston so that I could eat there again. The menu has continued to evolve for sophisticated foodie palates and doesn't disappoint. If you want nourishing, delicious food that makes no effort to seem like meat--you will find plenty to enjoy... More

We didn't expect to find a fully vegetarian restaurant outside of Chicago but we were very happy to find Blind Faith. The decor is modern, roomy and clean and the menu has lots to choose from. When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon the place was busy but our food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. The food was... More
