The chickpea salad is great for a light vegan lunch. I love that they offer vegan muffins.
Delicious Cafe is a small, simple and pleasant coffee shop with light food offerings. It's nice that the selections are almost entirely vegan, but the menu is quite limited. There's a good selection of teas and vegan bakery items. The meal options were just a few bagels sandwiches, which are fine but nothing too exciting.
Freshii is fast, convenient and accommodating to vegan options. It's great that they have lots of fresh vegetables, and options like tofu and brown rice that you don't see at most mainstream lunch places. That being said, I've never had a *wow that's tasty* meal there (maybe it's just my own lack of imagination in putting together all of the options).
The vegan chopped salad was good, and I'll definitely come back to try the vegan sandwich. There's almost no seating, though. There are a couple seats in the window and a few tables on the sidewalk.
Heartland Cafe is a funky fixture in the Rogers Park community. It has been a center for progressive politics and tasty food for decades. The menu is vegan-friendly, with quite a few options and helpful notes on the menu (such as pointing out which breads/buns are vegan). Also, the wait staff is knowledgable as to what food is vegan. The black bean burgers and bbq seitan are good standards and they offer a tofu scramble on the breakfast side.
The Vegan Plate is a wonderful lunch. They have a selection of salads, as well as hummus, several kinds of falafel and other Middle Eastern standards.
I was very pleased with my first Native Foods experience. The staff is friendly and helpful. I had the saigon roll and the mushroom sausage sandwich. Both were excellent. My only mild complaint is that the potato salad side seemed a bit bland. They gave me a cupcake sample, which was tasty. There are so many wonderful-looking options, I'll have to come back soon.
Review addition: I've been back several times and sampled a number of other dishes including the Rockin' Moroccan bowl and their version of a Reuben sandwich. It has all been excellent. I definitely recommend this place.
Five stars for the food, but only two stars for the rest of the experience. There are lots of vegan options on the menu, including things like soy cheese, tofu, quinoa, and other good options. I had the vegan original wrap, which was tasty and nutritious. The restaurant was noisy and very crowded, even after the normal lunch peak. I had people hovering over me waiting for me to finish. Nothing has prices on the menu, which is annoying. Maybe I'll have to do take-out in the future.
They must have changed their menu significantly since the prior reviews. None of the sandwiches were listed as vegan. One salad is labeled as vegan. This place is not any more vegan-friendly than any other loop sandwich place.
This is a great little place with a large all-vegan menu, which is mostly Thai style food. The dining room is tiny and fairly plain, but the quality of the food is the focus. I had the Pad See-Ew with seitan and Freshy Rolls - both were very good. One unusual feature is that the menu features several different kinds of veggie "meat" including a veggie "fish", which I'll have to try on one of my future visits.
This used to be a favorite place, but after the re-do a couple years ago, it's less homey and a lot more expensive. It's all vegetarian, but the vegan options are a bit uneven. There is a good selection of tasty (but pricey) vegan desserts.
This is a cute little place. I was with a friend who wanted something more local character than the Noodles & Co down the block, so we gave a try. I was pleased with the pasta salad and iced tea that I had. It seemed like the kind of place where they would make their menu even more vegan-friendly if people asked for it. They were so nice and accommodating when I asked.
Great selection of vegan products
