Masala Jack's
356 Indiana Boundary Rd
Chesterton, IN 46304
* Exit 26A off of I-94

Not worthy of a HappyCow listing even in northwest Indiana, if you find yourself in town for more than a few days it's worth knowing about their veggie burger, vegetable samosas and veggie burrito. This is a fast food restaurant (no drive thru).

Hours: Sun-Thurs 11am-9pm; Fri & Sat 11am-10pm

Lucrezia Cafe
428 S. Calumet Rd.
Chesterton, IN 46304

An Italian restaurant, Lucrezia is not worthy of its own listing on HappyCow due to its lack of veg*n entrees; however, if you are in the area for more than a few days and are looking for options it's worth a stop.

As a vegan, I load up on the different starters they offer to go with their bread: kalamata olives, eggplant and carmelized onion spread, roasted red pepper pesto, salsa cruda, whole roasted garlic and olive oil. Also try the bruschetta with tomato and basil. The house salad is vegan as is the Cucumber, Tomato and Red Onion Salad. They have a number of good vegetarian salads that can be made vegan such as their Mixed Greens with Poached Pear salad (hold the gorgonzola) and Tomato and Pine Nuts salad (hold gorgonzola).

They have Fettucine Alfredo and Pasta Primavera, but for an Italian place they do a terrible job of providing veg entrees.
