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.

There are a couple of big vegan restaurants in Chicago such as Chicago Diner, Native Foods (not exclusive to Chicago), and Urban Vegan (one of my favorites). All these places carry the integrity I expect. The one aspect they were lacking was a great relaxed environment. Plus, a lack of a breakfast menu.

This is THE place to go for a great vegan breakfast in Chicago. The environment is laid back yet spiritual and cultured. The food is excellent. I got the French toast which was huge. My girlfriend got the tofu scramble with soy sausage.

The soy sausage tasted so close to the breakfast sausage I grew up with I was amazed. The tofu scramble was fresh and great. The flavor of the tofu was spot on.

I have yet to come here for lunch, but I will surely come back. The owner was outside talking to the customers. The back page of the menu was specifically about his life and his spiritual experiences. He is a very interesting and unique character. He even gave us a discount for bringing joy into his day. (How rad is that?!)

Overall the environment was amazingly calm. The people there, customers and employees, were very interesting. For brunch it was the best choice we could have made. I highly recommend it. It stands above a lot of other vegan places I've been to.

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.
