    everything is good. I tend to lead toward the fish of the day or the hefty cobb salad. And the agua fresca changes periodically, so make sure you ask for the flavor of the day!

    Happy Vegan has a nice combination of Farro Wheat with Cranberry & Hazelnuts, Quinoa with Cucumber & Beets, Green Hummus, Tabbouleh, Tender Greens - yummy! $11 and enough for two.

  • Jed C.

    Love this place before you leave they will offer your beverage to go! Nice touch by the wait staff! Parking here is free at night off of Madison.

    Happy Vegan. Even if you're not vegan. You get the most bang for your buck because it's filling, substantial and tastes really good - especially the hummus!

    The fried chicken salad is great. Chicken not heavy and the buttered lettuce and freckled romaine is delicious.

    Get the crusty bread with the basil they put on the tomato soup to dip into. Mouth will explode!

    Great salads, soups, and hot entrées in an upscale casual setting. No table service.

    If you order to go, make sure to ask for utensils. They are kind of stingy about giving them out.

    They make coffee sound like advanced astrophysics. I asked for a cup of coffee + have no idea if they understood me.
