Health Food Store and Food Bar in Downtown

Coffee/Tea/Juice, Grocery/Bakery/Deli

Kramer's is in the heart of downtown, only 2 blocks away from the Hilton. Kramer's has two parts to it. Downstairs, they have a health food store that carries some soy milk, energy bars, juices, sandwiches, and some food they get from Soul Vegetarian (e.g. BBQ seitan and vegan sandwiches with mock meats). They also carry health and beauty products. Upstairs, they have a food bar that sells veggie burgers, soups, spinach pie, salads, and smoothies. The upstairs is not wheelchair accessible but they will bring a table and the food down for you if you'd like.

The food bar is only open on weekdays, from 11:30 to 5:45. During this time, if you want, you can get a veggie burger + soup + juice for only $4.95.

My new downtown spot!!! This place is great and I maybe the target audience...I got 6 delicious bean pies and couldn't help but smile at the fact that now...right downtown in Chicago everyone has the chance to try this wonderful creation. Plus I stocked up on my incense and went home happy and resolved to shop each week!

This is a well stocked grocery store with tons of supplements. However, I've been disappointed with their food selection. I've gotten at least two expired items there by accident (the second time I realized it before I paid for it), and I had a vegan cookie from there that was rock solid (maybe it had expired as well...). The grooming products are a little better, but not much. I purchased a deodorant there and when I got home and opened it, I found it was all dried up. Not good.
Upstairs, they have a little cafe where you can get vegetarian food and smoothies. I ordered a veggie burger here and I was disappointed to find that it was just a microwaved boca burger.
I wouldn't recommend it, unless you are downtown already and absolutely need something.
