University of Chicago Student Hangout

This place is known as a student hangout and has a great selection of drinks. “The Med” has a delicious lentil soup that is vegan, plus several other vegan options and a ton of vegetarian options.

I've been told that the veggie burger at the Med is vegan, which is one of the best veggie burgers that I've had. Their strawberry lemonade is also fabulous. I agree that there's nothing too exciting about the Medici except for the fact that it's somewhat of an institution at the University of Chicago. There are better places to eat in Hyde Park, but the Medici isn't half bad.

As much as an institution the Med is, I've never been thoroughly pleased when I've eaten here. I agree that the really only decent tasting item on the menu is the hummus. The service has always been slow, rude, and plain terrible. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
