Okay, if you look at my review history you'll see that I rarely give 5 stars to anything (in fact to date I think this is my first one). Native Foods is one exception to that rule.
They offer what I would consider many, near gourmet selections in a semi "fast food" environment at a great value... typically under $10 per entree and a special every day that includes a free side. There just aren't many 100% vegan restaurants out there - less than 5 in the Chicago area that I know of - and certainly none with such a diverse and value oriented menu including a few awesome deserts. I'm not typically into the faux meats or other over processed vegan foods but the corned beef Reuben is a must try. But, if you're not into faux there are plenty of awesome bowls to choose from as well. The sweets are agave sweetened, which I’ve mostly eliminated from my diet but the chocolate peanut butter parfait is worth caving on... it's so awesome! Very rich so don't get it unless you’re really hungry or plan on bringing half of it home with you.
The staff at the Milwaukee avenue location are very friendly and helpful and when asked proudly proclaim, "Yes! EVERYTHING is vegan"! For non-vegans please give this place a try - very health, and i promise, you won't miss the meat at all :-) My wife is not a vegan but loves going there with me and enjoys the wide variety of bowls and sandwiches as much as I do.
The only problem I have with the place is that it is too close to my house and I want to want to eat there every day... they offer a cookbook which I plan on buying.
