Vegetarian variety

One of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in Chicago, Blind Faith Cafe has been open since 1979. It is a moderately priced all vegetarian restaurant. Menu items include Asian, Mexican, and American inspired dishes. There is also a bakery attached which creates vegetarian and vegan desserts.

On a recommendation of a friend I went to Blind Faith Cafe for lunch on a snowy Saturday. The staff was friendly and I was seated right away. The menu is vegetarian and extensive but as a vegan I thought it was a little limited in the non-dairy, non-egg category. I chose the Vegan Mexican breakfast with grilled tofu and vegetables, black beans and rice. I was very impressed with the flavor and the portion was large. The seasoning was great and the salsa they provided wonderful too. Because I wanted the full experience I got the vegan double chocolate cake for dessert, with raspberry sorbet. The cake slice looked small but it was so rich that the portion was plenty.

There is also a veggie burger and a few other items that are vegan. What I liked about the Vegan Mexican breakfast was that it was what it was - it's own dish, as opposed to a veggie burger which is an imitation of a meat burger.

I will recommend Blind Faith Cafe to any vegetarian without reservation; I will hope that they expand their vegan menu items in the future.

Love this place! The thai peanut noodles are my go-to entree. The seitan marsala is also excellent and the vegan chocolate cake is to die for. The sweet potato fries are also fantastic. I really haven't ever had a mediocre meal there - it's always great if a little pricey for a college student. It's great for a special occasion!
