    Seriously meat free but couldn't tell. The gyros was great! Nice small selection of craft beer. Crowded but loved the diner atmosphere. Nice servers.

    Vegan shakes and fries are amazing. It's easy to spend a more money than you plan on here, but you won't be disappointed

    I'm not a vegan, but the milkshakes here are better than any I've had with dairy.

    Great place for a carnivore to take a vegan! Delicious food, do not go expecting it will taste the same as meat, go and explore how good vegetarian can be.

    Portobella sandwich, salad and green tea.

    Fantastic vegan comfort food. The cookie dough peanut butter milkshake is a must! Concocted from soy milk and corn ice cream goodness.

    The buffalo wings were some of the best buffalo wings I've ever tried - and I'm a meat eater who loves wings! Tastes amazing - you won't even know it's not chicken!

    Always a wait but that's a good sign! Vegan desserts are to die for!

    Black bean burger, portobella prime sandwich, and tofu stir fry were delicious!

    Everything is good here! I would recommend the pizza popper appetizer. You'd NEVER believe it's vegan. The salted caramel milkshake is also divine. 🍭

    A really special place. Food wonderful and feel is one of a kind. Had the Reuben and the Kale White Bean soup. Both were outstanding. I think they make the Thousand Island. I want it on everything.

    Can we talk about those snickerdoodle cookies, please? Unreal.

    Chicago vegan legend. Reuben gets all the love but the truffle melt really, yes, melts my heart. Seitan wings are amazing starters and the peanut butter shake is the best end to your vegan junk feast.

    Amy E Graff · November 10, 2014
  • Dora T.

    Vegans, vegetarians, non vegetarians will love this place. I recommend the Thai chili wings as an appetizer. I love that there is a small lot adjacent to the diner. Rare in Chicago

    I always get a shake to end the meal, no matter how full I am! The peanut butter cookie dough is one of my favorites

    The food here was great . Got my non-vegetarian grandfather to try the veggie ribs and he liked them! They were delicious along with the ice cream and black bean burgers. Must walk through the kitchen

    The Reuben is my all time favorite sandwich. Best food in the world. This is also one of the top vegetarian restaurants in the whole country!

    Looks like a classic American diner but serves vegetarian and vegan versions of comfort foods such as reuben sandwiches, country-fried steak and even a turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. Read more

    The thin slices of juicy seitan are impressively flavorful especially when smothered with the creamiest vegan tzatziki sauce you can imagine. The whole deal is wrapped in a perfectly fluffy pita. Read more
