Munch is a vegetarian restaurant mostly vegan with extensive gluten free varieties. We consider our meals vegan comfort food. Our menu ranges from protein packed meal salads to delicious homemade soups to satisfying stew bowls and weekly gourmet specials. Tofu and portabella spinach lasagna with Nana's authentic marinara and the Amazing Black Bean Burgers packed with roasted veggies are two of our most popular items. Munch serves real vegetable and fruit smoothies, vegan ice cream sweetened with beet sugar and many vegan and gluten free desserts. Our baked goods are made in house by our personal baker. Our customers dictate our menu. And thank you to all of them!

Because I am a total VEGAN, our local family took my husband and me (in town for a christening) to Munch for Saturday night dinner. Although the venue is small and unimposing, it's in a charming area--and we snagged a parking spot right out front for our rental car, which we thought was a good sign. (It was!) Our hosts... More

I found this restaurant on Happy Cow. As a vegetarian, I'm always looking for new veggie friendly places. Such a treat to have an entire menu to choose from for a change. It was an excuse to go to Oak Park and go to the Frank LLoyd Wright House tour which I've been wanting to do for years. The restaurant... More

What can I say? My wife and I just love Munch. We’re occasional Oak Park residents and found the place about a year ago. We’ve eaten here four or five times since then and we’ve never been disappointed. Neither of us are vegetarians but that’s irrelevant. The food is always interesting, fresh and flavorful. Along the way we’ve had the... More

Although the menu is a little lean on options, the food is a wonderful quality as in the setting. The owner is very friendly and engages most patrons. I would recommend the lasagna or "burger" along with the side potatoes. Also, the portabello mushroom appetizer is huge and filling :)

Vladimir and I are not Vegan or Vegetarian but we do like to eat healthy delicious food and that's exactly what we enjoyed at Munch. The staff were great, very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The portions were just perfect (if you want a massive jumbo processed burrito go to a chain) we prefer quality over quantity and that's what... More

I came in and the staff was so friendly and guided me through their amazing menu of vegan/vegetarian options. I really wish I lived near by so I could make this a regular stop.

The food here is very very fresh, the portions very small. I had the raw wrap which had perfectly ripe avocado slices and tomatoes, the other vegetables were also fresh and good. I thought the wrap would be a tortilla type wrap but it was wrapped in a bitter green leaf. The side was "Carrot Salad". Since when is a... More
