    Vegan/Vegetarian heaven. Spicy Fried Cauliflower is a great starter. The Bistro Steak Sandwich or Portobello Jibarito are tasty with seasoned fries. Even your meat-eating friends will love this place.

    So many delicious looking items on the menu! Try the lavender lemonade and anything with the vegan ranch or cashew mac!

    If you're new here you can't go wrong with the Portabella & Sausage Burger. Unless you don't like portabella mushrooms. In that case go for the Yo Amigo Taco Salad and make sure to add avocado!

    This is a great vegetarian place on the Loop. The staff is extraordinarily friendly. If you let them know you are new to the place they will help you though the menu and give you samples

    Quick efficient sit-down service during weekday lunches. Portabella sausage burger is wonderful; vegan ranch dressing is magic.

    Get here early for lunch - it gets crowded quickly. Menus on the wall are hard to read - pick up one of the takeout menus as you walk in and work out what to order as you queue.

    Best vegan food ever. The chicken bacon club and nachos were heaven. I never want to go to any other restaurant again.

    Get to kale micro bowl (add a little salsa from compliments bar for added kick) plus the lavender lemonade is a must (add few mint leaves for a refreshing twist).

    Cool vegan spot with delicious food and refreshments. Definitely not your $5 meal joint though so make sure to come prepared. Aside from that, highly recommended.

    Everyday they have a special item that comes with a side for free. I tried three already and liked all of them. The watermelon fresca drink is delicious.

    The Oklahoma Bacon Burger is heaven on a bun. But you really can't go wrong here- it's all delicious.

    Yo Amigo Taco Salad was incredible. I'm usually scared of faux meat but it was delicious, as was the lavender lemonade. Great atmosphere and friendly staff!

    I bought a falafel wrap and my boyfriend bought a Southwestern Burger which were both vegan and DELICIOUS! They do need better drinks but aside from that great.

    Everything I've eaten here was awesome. They have a way with sauces. Try the gyro or Thai meatball bowls for sure.

    Vegan heaven, if you're fond of soy-based meat substitutes. I enjoyed the chicken avocado club sandwich, available on Thursday

    To food is a nice vegan treat for sure but I highly recommend you get take out. The smell of Dettol or Lysol or what ever cleaning agent they use in the restaurant is so strong I can't taste my food.

    Would come here every day if I lived in Chicago. A little expensive but worth it for their great veggie- based meals.

    Food is ridiculously tasty...but you've got to lie the beer selection(for it's size). Yum two brothers. Nice Friday treat.

    Pricy but solid vegan option downtown. The Chicken Avocado sandwich is probably the best thing there.

    This place gets PACKED for lunch - particularly "meatless Monday". So make sure you come early.
