Vegetarian and Vegan food in a diner setting

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

This Chicago institution has been open since 1983. While the interior may look like a diner, the menu goes beyond this, though people looking for typical diner food, especially breakfast, won't be disappointed.

Offers an extensive line of vegan baked goods, such as cakes, cookies and famous cheesecakes in addition to their eclectic American and world food menu.

My husband and I, both vegan, recently ate here. As best as I can remember, I had the Thai chili lime wings appetizer (very good), a chocolate peanut butter shake (good), Mexican scrambled tofu (okay but not impressive), and since my husband and I always split our dishes and share them, the karma burger (also okay). For dessert we split a cinnamon roll (good to very good). All in all, there are better vegan restaurants than the Chicago Diner, but we weren't sorry we went, either. I would give it three and half stars.
