100% vegetarian breakfast spot

A popular breakfast house where the sugar packets carry spiritual messages and the waitstaff wear saris. Try the design-your-own omelets and scrambles, raspberry french toast, the Neatloaf or any of their veggie burgers. For vegans, try the design-your-own tofu scramble, vegan french toast, soy sausage and fresh squeeze orange juice. Menu states that any of the veggie burgers can be made vegan.

Small outdoor seating area in summer.

I had the tofu scramble. The marinated tofu was kind of strange in a scramble, but the spices in the scramble were excellent. It is a cozy cafe.

Victory's Banner is a small restaurant in the heart of Roscoe Village. With quaint stores and other neighborhood restaurants and bars along Roscoe Ave., Victory's Banner fits right in. During the summer in Chicago, you must sit outside to eat even if it is a hundred degrees outside. We spend far too long indoors during the winter/spring/fall to not do so. For brunch, we sat outside and the owner was very friendly, talking to us about the restaurant, menu, and asking about ourselves.

The restaurant is entirely vegetarian with many vegan options. The people that work there also are practitioners of meditation and followers of an Indian spiritual master. Don't be surprised to see the wait staff in sari's!

I had the tofu scramble. The tofu was seasoned very well. You have a choice of adding two types of vegetables to it. I opted for a side of mixed grilled vegetables in order to add more than just two. I also got a side of soy sausage (the soy bacon had egg in it). To top it all off, it came with some very hardy bread and soy butter and homestyle potatoes. To wash it down, I had some apple juice.

Victory's Banner is definitely a place to go to as a vegetarian or vegan on the prowl for a yummy brunch in Chicago! Highly recommend and I'll be going back sometime soon.
